GBoard is finally official via the Google Play Store

The wait is over. GBoard is now available as an update to Google Keyboard on the Google Play Store. Google has long had a keyboard on offer for iOS devices, GBoard, which has some cool tricks and features that were embedded in the keyboard itself. Android users were curious when this keyboard would finally make its official debut on Android devices, and that day has come.

An update has been pushed to Google Keyboard app on Android devices already using it, and GBoard is now available for download from the Play Store. GBoard offers some neat embedded features, like the ability to search Google right on the keyboard, in any app, and share the results just like you would doing a search on the web. It works for searching and sharing videos and .gifs as well. GBoard features swipe-typing, emoji search and multi-language support in addition to the search function. You can even customize the theme and size of the keyboard so it fits your personal style.

Google Keyboard was already a very solid pick for Android users, and the addition of GBoard features makes it even better. GBoard saves you from swapping apps just to search or share some basic info, and the fact that it works in most any app is just icing on the cake. It takes some adjusting, but once you’re used to the new features you’ll wonder how you got on without them. If you’re looking for a new keyboard for your device, or just wanna give it a try, get it from the link below.
