Google Hindi Keyboard gets support for ten Indic languages, now renamed to Google Indic Keyboard

Google has as many as eight keyboard apps for Android devices in the Play Store. One of them is Google Hindi Keyboard, which was released a few months ago along with Android 5.0 Lollipop with support for Hindi and Hinglish typing. Now, the search giant has renamed the keyboard to Google Indic Keyboard after adding support for ten additional Indic languages.

With this latest update, the keyboard app now supports typing in ten indic languages – Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Odia, Punjabi, Tamil, and Telugu – apart from English and Hindi. The app also supports transliteration to your native language if you pronounce the words in English.

The latest update not only adds improved suggestions but also some design improvements that allows easy switch between English and native scripts. The keyboard also supports a long list of smileys and voice recognition.

Worst update.
Every body in uninstalling?
because the material dark KEYBOARD THEME is not available on new update.
It is practically irritating to use the available light holo themes as shown in pic.
