Gboard Review

Gboard features a Google Search icon on the top left of the keyboard screen. Once the G icon is pressed, users can search for addresses, flights, and even YouTube videos. Now, with this update, the G icon will animate cuing you to quickly tap to open up the day's Doodle and search for more information about it.

There's also the introduction of voice typing which allows you to dictate the message to the app for auto-typing. Long pressing the space bar will activate the mic, and you can then tell Gboard what to type as a text message.

While iOS 10 emoji support was introduced in the October update, this one improves upon the support and lets you search and send all of the latest emoji from iOS 10. The latest Gboard app update can be found in the App Store.
