Google's Gboard keyboard app updated with more GIF options, additional languages
Gboard is getting more improvements this week, so if you're using Google's keyboard app for Android devices here is what you'll get. First off, the option to create custom GIFs has been further improved with more options, which will allow users to add text to them and even include some fun effects.

It's worth noting that you can also choose different colors for the text that you want to add to your GIFs. Also, there aren't too many effects (only three) that you can include on the GIFs, but it's a good start.

Furthermore, the latest update adds search in 15 more languages, as well as support for 28 new languages: Bagri, Batak Toba, Bench, Bhili, Capiznon, Chavacano, Eastern Min, Fiji Hindi, Ge'ez, Gurani, Ingush, Karachay, Khorasani Turkic, Kipsigis, Maharashtrian Konkani, Lezgian, Mizo, Maguindanao, Malay (Brunei), Maranao, Southern Min, Northern Sami, Qashqa'i, Rinconada Bikol, Surjapuri, Tausug, Upper Saxon, and Vasavi.

If you haven't tried one of the best keyboard apps for Android devices, you can now download the latest version of Gboard for free via Google Play Store, it may become your favorite keyboard app as well.

Swiftkey isn’t bad, but I find I’m more precise with Gboard. Choice is a good thing I’m glad we have these to pick from

The problem with gboard is the fact that is less precise than SwiftKey... This is true mostly for my native language, but even writing in English is worse on gb.

Stupidest keyboard I have ever seen, try writing "I agree 100%." in a Whatsapp conversation and you will see why. Swiftkey is light years better.

But it's the best for learning your typing habits especially for non English Creole languages.

It's only "the best made by Google".
