Gboard for Android was launched almost a year ago by Google, a while after the launch of the iOS version. Initially the virtual keyboard app was primarily known for its addition of Google search right within the app but Google added a lot of interesting additional features throughout the life of the app like the support for GIFs, ability to synchronize your saved words across multiple devices and even the option to change the background of the keyboard with your favourite image.
