Google Gboard Android Mini Emoji Stickers Rolling Out

The Gboard Mini already hit iOS devices in late August but Google did not provide a timeline when its own mobile OS would receive the same. It’s now appearing the new sticker packs through a server-side rollout.

So, Gboard users now have another option when sending custom emoji. They can just tap into their Bitmoji sticker collection to retrieve a pre-created one. Or, they can opt to use the app’s latest feature. The tool uses machine learning, neural networks, and artist illustrations to construct representations of selfie photos.

It takes a number of elements into account to render stickers which look similar to the user. For instance, skin tone, hair color and style, eye color, face shape, facial hair, and more.

Mini can create 100 new stickers based on a single personalized avatar. The designs include Bold and Sweet modes, giving users a wide variety of choices when rendered.

Gboard Mini emoji stickers are available through the latest version of the app, available on the Google Play Store.
