You Can Now Use Google's Gboard Keyboard on Android Devices
Search for GIFs, Emojis, and Google results from any app.
Previously an iOS joint, Google's Gboard keyboard is now available for use on Android platforms (via The Verge).
Gboard launched on Apple devices six months ago. It combines a touch-based keyboard with Google search functionality, and replaces the default keyboard app known simply as "Google Keyboard."
To access Google search, just press the Google logo that appears on the Gboard's keyboard layout. Tapping a search result places it in your text field, saving you the frustration of pecking away at touchscreen buttons.
Other hand features include a GIF search that lets you drop an animated image directly into your text field, as well as an emoji search.
You can use Gboard and its search function inside any other app, so a Google search is always only one keypress away.
