Tech giant Google is always true to its words. After making an announcement about its Gboard app for iOS users last week, the company has finally rolled out the much awaited keyboard app for iPad and iPhone users in the Indian sub-continent.
The tech giant’s Gboard keyboard app will allow iOS users to search GIFs, information, emojis and much more, quickly, easily and directly from the Gboard application itself. For this, it makes use of the search prowess of the popular search engine, Google. But, unfortunately, the app has currently only be rolled out for iOS users. It seems Android users will have to wait for a little bit longer to lay their hands on the Gboard keyboard.
According to tech experts, the thing that makes Gboard a real star is its built-in search functionality. Since we belong to the social-networking age and are chatting almost 24×7, this tool can be of great help. Using the app, one would be able to search information without interrupting the conversation when chatting. What’s even more lucrative is the fact that one can search emojis and GIF’s without stalling the conversation within a blink of the eye.
In addition to all these features, the app is gesture-based, thus making type by one-hand a real easy task. Android users usually rave about Google’s on-point word prediction feature, and now with Gboard, the same can be experienced by iOS users.
The app also comes with a feature to send usage statistics anonymously to Google, so as to help in detecting any problems in the app like crashes, speed etc.
Recently, the tech giant had taken a giant leap to simply its two-step verification process by introducing a new feature called the ‘prompt’. In order to use the feature, the users are required to approve a prompt when it appears on their phone as a part of the two-step verification procedure. Once this is done, the prompt will display a message stating if the user is trying to log-in. The message will further include details such as location of the device from which the log-in has been initiated.
