We know the things that 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 that you can easily share. None of these queries is sent to Google.

Simple And Just Great!

This keyboard is 100% better than stock apple keyboard. I've been having 0 problems on my iPhone SE and still don't. Swiping works way better than swiftkey or any other 3rd party keyboard app I have ever used. Searching right from the keyboard is so useful when for an example your friend asks you if you know a few good italian restaurants near "bla bla bla town" and you can just search it up on the keyboard and within seconds you can tell them!! So useful!! I love making GIFs and sending them.. so cool and unique! Anyways, the 4 stars isn't an accident actually. However it's because I think emoji suggestions (which is such a little thing) doesn't work as well as it does on the stock apple keyboard! lol! The rest is great though... I really want better emoji suggestions though, because on the apple keyboard I used to be able to type for an example puke and it would give me the puking emoji and the need to puke emoji, however on Gboard it doesn't give me anything but the suggestion 'puke'. As well as this I would be able to type two word words like "thumbs up" and apple keyboard would give me the thumbs up emoji suggestion. But now on Gboard it gives me nothing to do with emojis. THANK YOU for listening to litteraly the longest review ever written in the world (and it being for a keyboard app 🤣). By the way hope you have a great day! Bye

EDIT: Just found out you can search emojis on the top right google icon 👍😁 thank you!


Love it but fix this one problem

I used SwiftKey before as it had better reviews but I definitely feel that gboard is better. I love the fact that use can search on Google, and when writing am emoji like this :) it pops up and option to make like that 🙂. Love the customisation options and my only problem is the movement of the cursor. When pressing down on the keyboard, there will be a cursor that will allow you to go back on the text and correct it. When using apple's keyboard it works great but with gboard I can only stay in one line and can't move the cursor up or down. If this could be fixed, then for me the keyboard would be a 5* 👍



I love this keyboard, it is really useful! I love the kaomojis a lot. I have a couple of suggestions too.
1) You could create a clipboard thing? So like, you could type out things and put it on your clipboard so you can paste it whenever. Perhaps you could do the same with vids/pics.
2) You could add different fonts that you can change whenever so you can decorate your bio or something. I think that'd be really cool.

I'd really like these to be added, especially the clipboard. The keyboard is really cool at the moment though. (ᵔᴥᵔ)
