After catching up on iOS, Google’s keyboard app for Android is currently racing ahead, courtesy of an update that packs 40 extra languages (including Japanese), and inbuilt sticker packs. although Google already includes a keyboard for non-Latin script languages, it isn’t forcing you to adopt Gboard, as noted by 9to5Google. Instead, you will need to manually set up the android app for a new language.
For the uninitiated, Gboard puts Search right on the keyboard. And, it also adds GIFs, emoji-centric tools (including type and scrawl to search), and glide and voice typing to the mix — which can make you kick your other keyboards to the curb.
With the newest update, Gboard currently boasts 120 languages in total. Plus, you get access to four sticker packs by default (previously G-board only included stickers if Google’s Allo messaging app was installed) — so you ne’er need to use words again.
