Gboard is coming to Android

After seven months, the well-known keyboard app ‘Gboard’ in iOS is coming to Android. Google Keyboard will have a name change and will add some key features like the integrated search button and true multi-language support.

The update on Google Keyboard is not yet official but Android Police was able to grab an APK file listing the features that they have encountered so far:

  • 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 the bottom.
  • Emoji have a bright halo effect around them.
  • GIF button is always shown but disabled in apps without support.
