Friday, February 22nd, 2019

And as usual, there are dozens of new languages supported for people from around the world.

Gboard gets tweaked material theme, new emoticons in server-side change

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019

Google has developed an annoying habit of tucking changes away inside apps only to randomly deploy them at a later date without warning. There's usually no way to force these changes on, and it can be tough to figure out what just changed to make your phone work differently. If you have noticed some changes to Gboard lately, you have a Google server-side switch to thank.

You'll probably notice you've gotten the stealth update when your enter key suddenly looks a bit different.

Google rolling out new Gboard themes, including gradients [APK Download]

Wednesday, December 19th, 2018

Gboard's stock theme is a little boring (and bright), but you can easily change it to something more to your liking. The available options have increased in the latest build of the app, too. There's a new solid color that should match that not pink Pixel 3, as well as a number of slick gradients.

In the latest update, Google has added a selection of dark and light gradient themes. You can see a few samples of them above.

Gboard now supports more than 500 languages

Wednesday, December 19th, 2018

Gboard launched in December 2016, with support for about 100 different language varieties. Since then, Google has frequently announced large batches of new languages for its Android keyboard; earlier this week, another 50 made it in. All those tongues have added up fast, as Google has announced that two years after its debut, Gboard now supports more than 500 languages.

It seems the keyboard crossed the 500-language mark even before the latest batch was added; a count of the current full list of supported language variants totals 576.

The latest update to the Gboard app is now out, but it doesn't appear to be adding any features in this update, or at least not yet. A teardown points to some enhancements to some features we've either seen in the past or expect to go live in the near future, including tweaks to the Clipboard Manager, an option to delete search history, follow-ups related to voice typing, and of course, a ton of new languages and localized keyboards.
