Gboard is a new keyboard from Google for your iPhone. It has all the things you would expect from a great keyboard — GIFs, emojis, and Glide Typing — plus Google Search built in. No more app switching; just search and send, right from your keyboard. Search and send anything from Google: • Nearby stores and restaurants • Videos and images • Weather forecasts • News and articles • Sports scores • And anything else you’d search on Google GIFs — Search GIFs for the best reaction Emoji Search — Find the perfect emoji, faster Glide Typing — Type faster by sliding your finger from letter to letter Gboard for iPhone and iPad supports the following languages: • Afrikaans • Arabic • Azerbaijani • Belarusian • Bulgarian • Catalan • Croatian • Czech • Danish • Dutch • English • Estonian • Finnish • French • German • Greek • Hausa • Hebrew • Hindi • Hungarian • Icelandic • Indonesian • Italian • Japanese • Korean • Latvian • Lithuanian • Macedonian • Malay • Maltese • Norwegian • Persian • Polish • Portuguese (Brazil) • Portuguese ( Portugal) • Romanian • Russian • Serbian • Simplified Chinese • Slovak • Slovenian • Spanish • Swahili • Swedish • Traditional Chinese (Taiwan) • Traditional Chinese (Hong Kong) • Turkish • Ukrainian • Vietnamese • Welsh • Zulu Privacy We know the things 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 you can easily share. None of these queries are sent to Google.

    Google app developer should download the SwiftKey app and See what using a real keyboard is like.
  • Very Poor

    By NathanH83
    I've been using this keyboard for about a month, and I find myself spending more time hitting the backspace button and deleting its false predictions than I actually spend typing something. It guesses the wrong word about 70% of the time. And the Google dictation is terrible. It doesn't stay on long enough, and even when it does, it does not type out what I'm actually saying. Siri's dictation is much better and more reliable. These swipe keyboards are just terrible. Even when I typed "swipe" just now, it thought I said sweetie, so I had to delete it and retype it. Terrible keyboard. Completely unreliable.

  • Better than SwiftKey

    By my nickname is slim shady
    I've been using Swiftkey for years. I originally started using it on Android. It used to be the best predictive text keyboard out there. Plus it was customizable to some extent and I loved the swipe typing. But lately, it just doesn't work well. I have to correct almost everything I swipe and the predictive text didn't seem to work as well as it used to. I used Gboard in the past but it was never quite as good. Times have certainly changed. After trying it out, I noticed an immediate improvements and had no hesitation switching to it full time.
  • Voice dictation is horrible

    By Disappointed sub
    Once upon a time, Google voice to text transcription was flawless. Now, even Siri is more accurate. It's so bad I'm switching to Swiftkey keyboard in protest. All other aspects (typing, layout, gif integration) are best in class.
