Gboard, Google’s keyboard, gets smarter with its latest update.
If you don’t know how to respond to the constant WhatsApp chats, don’t worry, Gboard will help you with smart replies, sticker suggestions and GIF searches.
As mentioned in Android Police, some users are noticing a number of suggestions when using Gboard. Some find that the Google keyboard suggests certain responses based on the context of the conversation, displayed as a bubble above the bar.
At the moment, users only report this dynamic for simple answers or for text copied to the clipboard. And others see a series of stickers as suggestions on the keyboard bar. In this case, users only have to select one of the suggestions to see a preview with the possibility of having other options.
And these are not the only help that Gboard offers, it also gives you a hand in selecting GIFs. Taking into account the context and the latest messages, suggest different keywords when using the GIF search engine. They seem like small updates, but they will be a plus for those who are multitasking from mobile.
All these new options seem to be implemented with the latest version of Gboard on Android. So if you have the app up to date, take a look to see if any of these dynamics kick in. And if you still don’t see any news available, be patient, it depends on the server side and is usually implemented gradually to all users.
