Google launches a cool new keyboard ‘Gboard’ with built-in search, sadly its limited to iOS for now

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)

It’s no available in Indian store. First it would not come if u search in AppStore. If u search on Google ,it will take u to AppStore. If u click on install,it will give warning ,”this app available on American store, do U wanna change store”. If u change store,Gboard will be available,then u click on install,it will not allow u to install as it is not available in India. In short Indian users can’t download it

There is always a way. Open app store from the web (don’t open the app), create new Apple ID with US address. For payment option, select “none”. Enjoy 🙂
