Gboard for Android introduces instant language translation

Typing on a brand new device on the other hand can prove to be a bit tricky but Google has got people covered.

Google is bringing a suite of new features to the Android version of its Gboard keyboard, including a Google Translate integration that will translate any text you type into a desired language in real time. Earlier Google has released these features in its Beta 6.1 as we reported earlier. For instance, if you type the word "pizza" in your message, you'll see pizza emoji and pizza GIF suggestions right above the keyboard. It will reduce your time in chats. You can also share these GIFs across other applications including Facebook Messenger, Snapchat, Hangouts, and Allo. Well, to actually experience this, you will have to tap on the Google icon and then tap on Translate button.

The theme selector UI now separates solid color themes, recently used themes, and "Landscapes" into separate rows with which you can select.

In addition to new language features, Gboard now also includes automatic suggestions for emoji and GIFs, a helpful addition in an era when those symbols have replaced many common words in casual text conversations.

If you have Gboard installed, the update should be arriving anytime now.

The stock, one of the 30 components of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, closed almost 4.3% lower at $94.36 a share. Several of the agents were armed, while others were pulling large black roller bags as they entered the building.

Language translation on a smartphone needed users to use a third-party app or navigate to Google translate.

With the update, Gboard's voice typing feature also gains an updated interface, which makes it easier for users to toggle voice or text typing back and forth.

Google is expected to drop more information about the Android O during the upcoming Google I/O 2017 event in May.

Finally, additional support for right-to-left languages has been added in, namely allowing for search functionality for web, GIF, and emoji. If not, feel free to try out the app by downloading it from this link. This is particularly useful in text messaging apps, of course. Now, Gboard will do it all right there for you.
