Gboard changed into first released for iOS devices in May 2016 after which Google rebranded its keyboard on Android devices as “Gboard” in December 2016. Gboard is an app that basically lets you seek and send information, GIFs, go with the flow typing and more, right from your keyboard. You do now not need to transfer between packages to search for the information. Everything you need from Google is inside the Gboard app.

Now, Google is upgrading Gboard for iOS by adding 15 more languages, new emoji, voice typing, and Doodle.

New Languages

iOS users can get right of entry to extra languages from Gboard app “Languages > add Language”. The new languages consist of Catalan, Czech, Croatian, Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Greek, Hungarian, Latin American Spanish, Malay, Polish, Russian, Romanian, Swedish, and Turkish.


Users won’t have to scroll to search for a particular emoji. They can search the emoji by describing it and have access to all the latest iOS 10 emoji.

Voice Typing

Users can dictate their messages on Gboard. The app will write the words as you speak.
Just long press the mic button on the space bar and talk.

Google Doodles

The fun animations of Google can now be accessed directly from the Gboard. Whenever there is a new Doodle on occasions such as the anniversary of some notable personality, a global event etc. the “G” icon will animate on the app. You can simply click on it to know what it’s about and share it with others.

These new features are only available for iOS at the moment, but it’s fair to assume they’ll be making their way to the Android version of the app soon.
