Google Keyboard gets even better with Android N

A couple of weeks ago, Google Keyboard received an update, which added a number of really cool features, such as keyboard resizing and optional key borders (finally?). Additionally, Google added some nice gestures, which we've seen in other keyboards – swiping left from the backspace will delete whole words (the further you swipe, the more words you delete), and swiping across the spacebar will let you scroll the text cursor between letters for more precise input.

Checking out Google Keyboard on Android N – it becomes apparent that we have a whole new menu dedicated to customization of the keyboard. It's a theme selector, which contains 13 different color combos for the keyboard, together with the option to place any custom image as a background.

Other recent new features include long-pressing suggestions to delete them from your dictionary, one-handed mode, and gesture typing in a number of different languages. These are available for your regular old stable Android builds, so go ahead and give Google Keyboard another chance if you were a bit disappointed by it in the past.
