“To help you up your texts per minute, Gboard now includes phrase suggestions to predict what you plan to type next. For example, try typing “looking forward” and Gboard suggests ‘to seeing’ or ‘to it’ as you type,” Reena Lee, Product Manager, explains.

Currently, the new feature is only available in English, but will include more languages soon.

Additionally, when users search within the keyboard, there are multiple results to browse. Google states this makes it easier to search and then share with any app. Moreover, when a user taps on a card, they can go to Maps, phone a business, or even watch a video on YouTube. Users only need to tap the “G” or arrow magnifying glass to start searching.

“Gboard now supports more than 200 language varieties, and we’re also adding suggestions and gesture typing for Azerbaijani (Iran), Dhivehi, French (Belgium), Hawaiian, Maori and Samoan, and simple keyboards so you can type and text in Dzongkha, Ewe, Navajo, Tsonga, and K’iche’.”

The new Android Gboard update is available on version 6.3.
