Google recently renamed its keyboard and now it's called GBoard. For android users, it is now available and can download it from Play Store. Like old Google keyboard, it has all the things which we are used to - speed, accuracy, Glide typing, voice typing. Now, GBoard has built in Google search option which will help users to search and send information without getting out of the application.
Everything which GBoard has is not new but the main thing is it has brought together every possible thing user will use. Starting with flight timings to weather reports, GBoard covers it all. It also provides relevant searches for the queries made by the users. Without jumping to one app to another everything will be done on a single screen. Users can text their friends and check for the weather condition on a single screen. Google messenger, Allo, and Hangout has already started supporting GIFs.
With the support of machine learning, GBoard is now much faster and smarter. Things like Glide typing, auto correction, and predictions also improved in GBoard. The keyboard is designed in such a way that multilingual users will not have any problem while having any conversation. Now users don’t have to switch languages manually in order to have any conversation in multiple languages. As of now GBoard supports more than 100 languages and in coming months Google will add more languages.
