Earlier this year, Google released a standalone keyboard app named Gboard for iOS. The USP of the app is the native support for Google search and at that time, everyone was wondering when and if the app will make its way to Android. If you were or are one of those, good news is that wait is over now as Google has finally made Gboard keyboard app available for Android.
The Gboard app for Android works exactly like it works for iOS which means you now have access to all those features which were exclusive to iOS users until now. You can search the web via Google search using the G button at the top bar of the keyboard. The app shows you corresponding search results within the keyboard which can also be shared with the person you are talking to. If you don’t want the button, you can disable it from the keyboard settings.
The top bar of the keyboard further includes options like keyboard themes, one-hand mode, and a shortcut to app settings, and a mic icon for voice input. Gboard also features support for multiple languages among which you can switch on the fly without going to the manual switch mode.
Other Gboard for Android features include the ability to search for emoji, search GIFs, and enable/disable a dedicated number keys row. If you are interested, you can download Gboard for Android from APK Mirror and install the APK manually. Google is yet to make the app available on the Play Store.
