Gboard for iOS gets voice typing and new emoji

Are you a rebel, using Google products on your iPhone 7 Plus? Well, we have good news for you, then. Gboard, Google’s keyboard app, is getting an update.

First of all, Google included more languages to the supported ones for Gboard. The keyboard can now work in Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Greek, Polish, Romanian, Swedish, Catalan, Hungarian, Malay, Russian, Latin American Spanish and Turkish. In order to use one of those languages, you can go to Languages > Add Language from inside the Gboard app.

Google has also beefed up the emoji support for Gboard. Users can now search and send all the emoji that iOS 10 supports.

One nifty little feature is the integration of Google doodles into Gboard. If you see the Google logo in the top left of the keyboard animate when you use Gboard, you can click it to display the day’s doodle, and search for extra info on it.

The biggest update, though, is the voice typing option that is now included in Gboard for iOS. In order to use it, you just need to hold the spacebar key until you’re prompted to speak, then dictate your message to the app.

While not many, these changes are certainly big, allowing easier access to the app, and more emoji. We’re not entirely sure which is more important, though.
