Gboard’s clipboard manager is starting to show up in v7.7 beta [APK Download]

Friday, October 26th, 2018

Gboard's clipboard manager has been in the making for a few months, but more tangible signs of its launch showed up a few days ago when version 7.7.5 beta rolled out. Now, it looks like the feature is being toggled on server-side and it works exactly as its name says.

To check it out, open the keyboard to start typing and hit the Google logo on the top left. You'll find your four toolbar shortcuts as well as an ellipsis (...) that loads additional ones below, amongst which is the new Clipboard. Either select it there or, for faster future access, grab it and add it to the toolbar.

Google Assistant’s keyboard button vanishes for some people

Monday, October 22nd, 2018

Google's Assistant underwent a slight redesign earlier this year, and since then it's seen some subsequent tweaks and icon shuffling — the typical incremental tweaks that seem to be a defining part of Google's design process. It could be the herald of a future change, or something as innocuous as a bug, but the keyboard icon for text input on the Assistant seems to be disappearing for some of us, though it still brings up the text entry field if you tap where it used to be.
