Google’s Gboard Keyboard Now Available on Play Store
While Google’s Gboard keyboard app for iOS has been around since May, the company has officially released Gboard – a rebranded version of the Google Keyboard, on Android. The app can now be downloaded and installed directly from the Google Play Store.
The Gboard keyboard app comes with a number of built-in features such as Glide typing (Gesture typing) for faster typing by sliding from letter to letter and Google Search integration (needs to be turned on in the settings), allows direct searches from the keyboard even in the middle of a conversation.
Also, the new update (Google Keyboard v6.0 – Gboard v6.0) brings support for multiple languages (multilingual typing) – over 100 different languages to select from, with the ability to have up to three active at once, text and search predictions, emoji and gif search tool.
Voice typing and the option to show the number of rows on the screen as well as one-handed operation mode on big screens are some of the other highlighted features. The Gboard app is currently looking like the best keyboard on Android, however, let’s not forget that Swiftkey is a strong contender too.
Swipe, search and emoji away, get the app on Play Store today.
