Google has launched its “Gboard.” You may be asking what is a “Gboard”? “GBoard” is Google’s new keyboard specifically for iOS that enables users to search with any app. This new keyboard launched yesterday and can be installed to any iOS device, and used to search without having to leave the app.
For example, if you are using iMessage on your iPhone you can quickly search for information and embed that information into your message without ever having to click out of the app. The “Gboard” not only lets you search and send information, it also allows you to find GIFs, emojis and more. Instead of scrolling through a long list of emojis or GIFs looking for the perfect one to send to your friend, you can now Google search “dancer” using the Google Keyboard and the dancer emoji will appear.
The new keyboard also utilized glide typing which allows you to type words by sliding your finger from key to key instead of tapping, allowing you to access your information a little faster. The Gboard is now available for free download on iOS devices.
