Gboard is a new keyboard from Google for your iPhone. It has all the things you would expect from a great keyboard — GIFs, emojis, and Glide Typing — plus Google Search built in. No more app switching; just search and send, right from your keyboard.

Search and send anything from Google:
• Nearby stores and restaurants
• Videos and images
• Weather forecasts
• News and articles
• Sports scores
• And anything else you’d search on Google

GIFs — Search GIFs for the best reaction

Emoji Search — Find the perfect emoji, faster

Glide Typing — Type faster by sliding your finger from letter to letter

We know the things you type on your phone are personal, so we’ve designed Gboard to keep your private information private.

What Gboard sends to Google:
• Gboard sends your searches to Google’s web servers to give you search results.
• Gboard also sends usage statistics to Google to let us know which features are used most often and to help us understand problems if the app crashes.
• If you use Gboard’s microphone, voice input will be sent to Google for transcription.

What Gboard doesn’t send to Google:
• Other than your searches and voice inputs, Gboard doesn't send anything you type to Google, whether it’s a password or chat with a friend.
• To help you with spelling and to predict searches you might be interested in, Gboard will store the words you type on your device. This data is not accessible by Google or by any apps, and can be cleared at any time.
• If you’ve turned on contacts search in Gboard search settings, this allows Gboard to search the contacts on your device so you can easily share. None of these queries are sent to Google.

Texting simplified


This made texting soo fast and easy. Great app overall, thanks google!
Couple important improvements needed:

- it takes a very very long time to activate the keyboard mic.
-Autocorrect needs major improvements
-Amharic keyboard missing
-Provide more emoji suggestions when typing.

Let's wait and see how quickly Google addresses these issues I have not been disappointed in the past when it comes to fixing issues

Excellent app, but needs one change to be perfect


Pressing on the Google colored button on the bottom should stop the listening input. Sometimes if music is playing in the background then it will continue to listen for voices, even though I stopped giving the voice input 20 seconds earlier. This is a really annoying future, and there needs to be a way to stop the listening input in case music is playing in the background or something.

Constantly stops working


I like the app while it is working (though there is no option for a double letter), but it constantly stops recognizing the swipe and using it like a normal keyboard is frustrating, especially because the spell check/auto correct is terrible.
