Google and Apple’s operating systems are in a never-ending war and it’s basically impossible to tell which one is the best because they both have their strengths and weakness. However, Google’s Android has the upper hand when it comes to premium native Android apps that can be found available on the Google Play Store. One of the most popular and most useful apps that only Android fans can access is called the Gboard and it makes it easier for users to express themselves when communicating with their friends or family members.
The reason why Gboard is making headlines on our website today is because the Android parent has just released a new update. The new update for Gboard is a high priority release that comes with a bunch of useful features and therefore, we are advising everyone who enjoys using Gboard to make sure to keep their smartphones connected to a stable Wi-Fi network because the new update will roll out later today.
Gboard 188.8.131.527844772 Beta Update
The new update for Gboard sports the 184.108.40.2067844772 version number and it’s being rolled out via OTA (over the air) channels. However, we need to mention that this is a beta update that we are talking about. The reason why this is important is because it means that the only Gboard users who can download it are those who are enrolled in the beta program. With that said, let’s go ahead and check out what are the new features that this new update introduces.
- Handwriting in cursive and printed letters for more than 200 languages
- Share language settings with other Gboard users for easy setup (Beta)
- Indicator for emoji gender and skin tone variants
- Download the beta version to give feedback on upcoming improvements
