Not sure why this is listed first, but Gboard will now suggest emojis and GIF images as you type.

Which is not available: Gboard was last updated on my device back in January. But for those of you not inclined towards emoji and GIF based conversations, there are other improvements to G Board with this latest update. From there, you can choose the translation you'd like, then start typing and send! The update includes a new instant translation feature that will translate any type of text one types into another language in real time, GIFs, emoji suggestions, and a handful more.

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

Another of the highlights of GBoard for Android are the suggestions of GIF and emoji as you type. Instead of leaving your messaging app to translate a word or phrase, now you can translate your text right in the Gboard app. Google has added more keyboard themes to the app that can be accessed either through Gboard settings or by a press on the Theme icon in the quick features menu in the suggestion strip. Moreover, You can now share GIFs in supported apps such as Facebook Messenger, Snapchat, Hangouts and Allo.

Planned Parenthood president on GOP health care plan
One thing seems certain: Abortion is an issue that includes Americans of good conscience on either side. I understand completely the moral opposition some people have to abortion.

Voice typing is getting an update, too, with a new interface to make it easier to switch back to normal typing.

Gboard, formerly known as Google Keyboard, has been the primary go-to keyboard for many users since the integration of Google Search features. Now, tapping the microphone will bring up a new voice typing interface without taking you away from your keyboard.

Say hola. Whether you're texting a friend who speaks another language or just want to express yourself in a different tongue, just click the Translate icon within the quick feature menu.

For Arabic and Farsi users the keyboard will now work right-to-left.
