Google has announced a significant update for Gboard, bringing new emoji, Google Doodles, voice typing, and additional language support to the iOS keyboard app.

Gboard integrates the company's search capabilities into an iPhone or iPad's keyboard. Using the Google button in Gboard, users can search for information, send what they find, discover GIFs, emojis, and more, without having to exit a messenger app to visit Safari or Chrome.

The update means Gboard now supports all of the latest emoji from iOS 10. Additionally, Google has added subtle alerts about Google Doodles, which frequently animate the Google logo to honor holidays, anniversaries and notable people. Whenever a new Google Doodle goes live, the "G" button animates, prompting users to find out more about it.

Elsewhere, today's update adds voice typing, which allows users to dictate messages directly to Gboard. To start a new text, users can now long-press the mic button on the space bar and talk.

The update also brings 15 additional languages to Gboard, including Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Greek, Polish, Romanian, Swedish, Catalan, Hungarian, Malay, Russian, Latin American Spanish and Turkish.

Gboard is a free download for iPhone and iPad available on the App Store. [Direct Link]

[doublepost=1487848958][/doublepost]I don't know why the stock keyboard doesn't have a swype input option. Using the Gboard myself, I would always switch back to the stock keyboard for voice dictation. This update will make things easier for alot of users. Maybe the next update will bring a swype input option for the stock keyboard

It would be sooooo much easier if Apple just implemented a "slide/glide" option to their own keyboard. I tried this new Google keyboard, and it is very slow, clunky, and awkward to use compared top Apple keyboard... :(

Come on Apple, implement a glide/swipe/slide style option to yours... PLEASE :)

Too bad it still doesn't have true multilingual typing support like SwiftKey. You have to actually press the globe to change language. After using SwiftKey for years, I can't go back to changing language manually.
Wow. That doesn't work? I switched to Android and the android Version does support that.

Google was started with CIA venture capital funds. I would never use ANY google products, SPECIALLY a keyboard which may transmit confidential info to their servers. I don't wanna hear from boot-licking statists and apologists for corporate technocracy. Save it for the compost pile...
