GIF and emoji search are obviously not the only new features that are included in this update. This is an improvement over the normal keyboards you would find out in the market, which offer emoji support as you type. This is essential for keeping in touch with a distant family member or friend from another region of the world.
Gboard is also adding suggestions for emojis and GIFs. It promises to introduce more vistas for your keyboard as time goes by. Oh and thanks to the fact that the Google Neural Machine Translation system is at work here, the sentences are likely to be much more cohesive and intelligible than what you would expect from most other translation tools out there.
It's worth noting that the Gboard is also available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Google today announced "a bunch of fresh new features" for Gboard for Android. This means that you'll be able to easily translate incoming and outgoing text in a variety of different languages. To help you be more trendy in your messages, Gboard will now show you GIF and emoji suggestions as you type. Google says it now supports sharing GIFs into third-party messaging apps like Facebook Messenger and Snapchats, as well as its own Allo and Hangouts offerings. With this feature, you can tap the Translate icon in the quick feature menu and Google Translate will instantly translate words as you type them. Google is positioning Gboard as a one stop solution for translating stuff as well.
Speak up. Voice typing is now easier than ever with an updated interface to make it seamless to switch back to regular typing.
