Recently GBoard has received an update which now enables and allow users to use GIF and Emoji suggestions and also translate in real time (live). GBoard has grown since it launched to become a standalone keyboard app for Android. Even at that, latest smartphones now comes pre-installed with Gboard app, making it the default keyboard.
With the new Gboard words translation feature, you no longer need to switch from one app to another, just to translate words (like using Google’s Translate app). Sadly, you’ll still need to use the translate app if your message is in a foreign language. Gboard only translate English words to your desired languages when typing.
In addition, emoji and GIFs can be inserted to the text without having to switch to the emoji or GIF selection tool (for supported apps). Google has also added some scenic and dynamic backgrounds to give keep things new. The update should still be rolling out, you just have to chill while the roll out is complete.
