Gboard is the keyboard from Google for your iPhone, packed with features to make typing effortless. On top of GIFs, emoji search, and Glide Typing, the power of Google is at your fingertips with Google Search built in. Forget switching from app to app – just search and send, all from one place. GIFs — Search GIFs for the best reaction Emoji Search — Find the perfect emoji, faster Stickers - Create or share stickers to express yourself Glide Typing — Type faster by sliding your finger from letter to letter 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 Gboard for iPhone and iPad supports the following languages: • Afrikaans • Arabic • Azerbaijani • Belarusian • Bengali • Bulgarian • Catalan • Croatian • Czech • Danish • Dutch • English • Estonian • Finnish • French • German • Greek • Gujarati • Hausa • Hebrew • Hindi • Hungarian • Icelandic • Indonesian • Italian • Japanese • Khmer • Korean • Latvian • Lithuanian • Macedonian • Malay • Maltese • Marathi • Norwegian • Persian • Polish • Portuguese (Brazil) • Portuguese ( Portugal) • Romanian • Russian • Serbian • Simplified Chinese • Slovak • Slovenian • Spanish • Swahili • Swedish • Tamil • Telugu • Thai • 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.

    Very cool
  • So many bugs, and a total fail in landscape mode.

    By Jyunte
    Bugs: . Horrendous word prediction when glide-typing. . Using the space bar to move the cursor is very hit or miss - goes to the extreme ends of a line, hard to guide it to where you want the cursor. . Causes some apps to lock up (YouTube especially). . Pressing the voice dictation button more often that not switches to dictation mode, then immediately takes you back out of it. . Pressing the voice dictation button nearly always switches to dictation mode, allows you to say a few words, then stops dictation mode after just a couple of seconds, forcing you to press the microphone icon... Which gives you time to dictate another couple of words before it stops again. . I've just started experiencing the other bug others have mentioned... You click in a text Field, and no keyboard appears. Nothing. I have screen captured this happening, but there's no way to send it to Google! . Would love to be able to swipe the word "the" without GBoard inserting "three" all the time. Landscape Mode Specific Bugs: . As you swipe to type, GBoard stops accepting input momentarily, as if you'd taken your finger off the keyboard. The result is numerous random words, instead of the single word you tried to type. . In certain apps, like the Apple App Store, turning to landscape mode and trying to swipe-type produces completely random text when the text input box is blank. It's as if the mapping of the keyboard doesn't get rotated from portrait mode. Update: That's exactly what happening. If you start typing in landscape it types correctly, but if you rotate the iPad, the keyboard mapping gets messed up. The reverse is true if you start in portrait. "Select All" option is gone. After selecting a lot of text, can't deselect text. PadOS switches from GBoard to the iOS keyboard and often doesn't switch back to GBoard.

    It needs more keyboards 😩☝🏾
  • I recommend this keyboard to everyone

    By not everyone has a unique name
    it lets you search for everything from Google translate to YouTube videos and gifs and everything in between. plus the cosmetic options get the job done, lots of cool gradients and the option to put any photo behind the keyboard. I especially like how you can do a Google search without even opening a single app.
  • Needs a little tweaking

    By Bradnohio
    Overall it's pretty good, just needs a little tweaking here and there. Would be really awesome if you added the option to have the numbers have their own line instead of having to long press a key or tap the numbers button. Also the predictive text needs some improvement.

    Let me start this by saying that I absolutely love the google keyboard; however, as of late it has been crashing and freezing...... A LOT. I do not want to use the keyboard Apple supplies, but these issues are forcing me to have to. PLEASE HELP
  • Doesn't work with Google apps (Chrome, Gmail....????)

    By Whyzhou
    Something happened either with the latest update of Gboard or the latest iOS update, but now suddenly I cannot use Gboard with any app made by Google. iMessages? Facebook? This app to write a review? GBoard works fine. Chrome? Gmail? Google Maps? GBoard doesn't even show up as a keyboard option anymore. Please save me from the non-emoji searching no giphy bad predictive text that is default iOS keyboard.

  • Slow, laggy, crashy

    By Limyc_
    This keyboard has been slow, laggy, and crashing since iOS 13. The keyboard doesn't switch to dark mode consistently when iOS dark mode is enabled
