The keyboard allows users to search for information on Google, which can be shared through text messages, emails and more

Google updated its Gboard keyboard application on iPhone. First launched in May 2016, the keyboard allows users to search for information on Google, which can be shared through text messages, emails and more.

With this update, Gboard now supports 15 additional languages, and it gives users access to Google Doodles, new emoji and voice typing. Specifically, the app now works in Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Greek, Polish, Romanian, Swedish, Catalan, Hungarian, Malay, Russian, Latin American Spanish and Turkish.

In terms of Google Doodles, the Gboard button will now animate when there’s an active Google Doodle, and users can tap the button to see the Doodle and search for information about it.

Elsewhere, the keyboard now supports all of the new emoji from iOS 10.

Finally, users can now create messages using their voices by long-pressing the microphone button on the space bar to activate voice typing.

The Gboard app is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store.
