Google intends to revolutionize how we write and share information through our instant messaging conversations thanks to its new iPhone keyboard called Gboard. It incorporates all the important functions that we would expect on a modern keyboard: GIFs, emoticons and predictive text, but its key functionality is being able to use Google search straight from the keypad.
What is Gboard for?
Until now, if we wanted to share any kind of information with our contact, we had to leave the messaging app, go to Google, search for the information, copy it and go back to the chat and paste it. As you can see, quite complicated.
Google straight on your keyboard.
Now the entire process is automated as we can search and share the results straight from Gboard without having to swap applications. So it's much easier to send information about restaurants, clubs, the weather, news or anything else we'd usually search for on Google.
