But if your Android handset runs Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or higher, you can have a little piece of KitKat on your Android phone right now, by installing the updated Google Keyboard 2.0 from the Google Play Store. The holo blue UI is gone, replaced by the black and grey look of Android 4.4. Among the changes, punctuation is laid out differently across different screen sizes (4 inches, 7 inches and 10 inches). You can swipe over the space bar to generate a space instead of lifting up your finger, and if your phone supports it, you can type more expressive emoji instead of basic smiley faces.
