I do switch between the Blackberry Keyboard and Google’s Gboard keyboard quite a bit and the new Gboard update has some cool new features.
Gboard for Android has a bunch of fresh new features. You’ll get access to emoji and GIF suggestions while you type, improved voice typing, more keyboard themes, as well as access to Google Translate. In addition, search features including web, GIF, and emoji search are now available in right-to-left languages on Gboard.
Try new ways to get your point across. Now as you type, you’ll see emojis and GIF searches in the suggestion strip to help you express yourself in new (and more fun!) ways. You can now share GIFs in supported apps such as Facebook Messenger, Snapchat, Hangouts and Allo.
Voice typing is now easier than ever with an updated interface to make it seamless to switch back to regular typing.
Select your style. To liven up your keyboard, you can choose new scenic views as your backdrop. To access, go to Gboard settings and select theme or press on the Theme icon in the quick features menu in the suggestion strip. We will be offering more themes more often from now on, so make sure to keep checking back.
