Well, here comes a good news for the iOS users. Google has launched Gboard, a keyboard with Google search button within. Not just the Google search button but it also has a host of other features that allow users to search and send GIFs, emojis, and much more.
With Gboard, you are no more required to Google for anything by leaving the app you're using. Now, you can search right from the keyboard and share it instantly. The search results appear in the form of cards and with one tap you can share it (as shown in the GIF above).
Sadly, the Gboard is exclusive to iOS users as of now. However, Google will soon be launching it for Android users as well. But isn't it weird that Android being its own platform, Google chose iOS to roll out the Gboard first? Anyway, we can just hope that it rolls it out to Android sooner.
Key features of the Gboard:
- Search and share: Nearby stores, restaurants, Videos and images, Weather forecasts, News and articles, Sports scores, and much more
- Search GIFs
- Emoji Search: Find the emoji just by typing the name
- Glide Typing (like the Swype keyboard)
