Gboard comes to Android and replaces Google’s Keyboard
Back in May, Google released Gboard keyboard app with integrated Google search and built-in GIFs and emoji search. The app was available only for iOS devices and not on Android.
Now, six months later Google is bringing the Gboard app to Android. But instead of releasing it as a standalone app, the search giant has updated Google Keyboard as Gboard in the version 6.0. Google has not officially announced the app, or listed it on the Play Store, but the APK file is out on third party site APK Mirror.
The main highlight of the Gboard is that, it is integrated with Google Search which makes it easier to search and send information, GIFs, emojis and more without leaving the conversation.
It has Google’s search icon “G” on the top left of the keyboard, when tapped, you’ll be able to search nearby stores, restaurants, videos, images, weather forecasts, new and more. Also, there is a dedicated number row, support for to three active languages. Additionally you’ll also be able to search GIFs and Emojis as well.It also comes with Glide Typing feature which lets you type faster simply by sliding your finger over the letters.
Gboard should make its way to the Play store soon.
