This year in May, Google launched the GBoard app for iOS and well, this was a very weird move from the company as Android users didn’t get the app. But, after about half a year, it has been made available for Android users. The app arrived at Android as v6.0 of the much popular Google Keyboard. But, not just the name has been changed, but there are some new features included in the new GBoard app.
WHAT’S NEW IN THE GBOARD?
As mentioned above, it has some new features and improvements over the earlier versions of Google Keyboard. Here are the new features –
- G button (enabled in settings) offers quick access to search from the keyboard
- Pop-out toolbar (when G button not enabled) provides access to themes, settings, one-handed mode, and search
- Optional dedicated number row
- Up to three active languages with preference for one (previously had to switch)
- Gesture typing is now called Glide typing.
- Search for emoji
- Rearranged emoji panel with group selection at bottom
- Emoji have bright halo effect around them
Well, just like for iOS, the GBoard for Android comes with Gesture typing, do different searches directly from the keyboard, insert GIFs and much more. The only significant difference in iOS and Android versions is the User Interface The iOS app is based on traditional Apple UI whereas the Android app is based on Google’s Material design with a clean interface.
Right now, the app isn’t available officially from the Play Store, but you can download the apk file by clicking or tapping on the button below. Make sure to share your views on this new and improved GBoard ( Google Keyboard v6.0) app. Cheers 🙂
