Google’s Gboard 6.1 beta has come up with features like improved theme picker and Google Translate. Earlier just by tapping the microphone button, the Gboard app used to collapse and show a voice typing in that place. If you are having a lower-end phone then this animation would be slower.
If you want to go back to the keyboard, you have to first close the voice typing popup and wait till the keyboard appears again. In May 2016, Google had introduced Gboard to the users which let them search, send Emoji, information, GIFs etc. On 24th February 2017, Google upgraded the popularly demanded features with additional of 15 different languages, new emoji and with Google Doodles.
The play store beta program for the Gboard users was made public. You can also say things faster using the new feature voice typing for the iPhone users. In the Google Gboard 6.1 just by tapping the microphone will let open the full keyboard just by showing the voice typing indicator towards the top right side. This is better than the old solution and now you can stop voice input just by tapping anywhere on the keyboard.
In the GIF suggestions, Google’s Gboard 6.1 has added GIF results to the suggestions bar. Gboard 6.1 is in beta version so the users can join the beta program on play store or can directly download the APK from APKMirror.
