Gboard is a new keyboard from Google for your iPhone. It has all the things you would expect from a great keyboard — GIFs, emojis, and Glide Typing — plus Google Search built in. No more app switching; just search and send, right from your keyboard. Search and send anything from Google: • Nearby stores and restaurants • Videos and images • Weather forecasts • News and articles • Sports scores • And anything else you’d search on Google GIFs — Search GIFs for the best reaction Emoji Search — Find the perfect emoji, faster Glide Typing — Type faster by sliding your finger from letter to letter Privacy We know the things you type on your phone are personal, so we’ve designed Gboard to keep your private information private. What Gboard sends to Google: • Gboard sends your searches to Google’s web servers to give you search results. • Gboard also sends usage statistics to Google to let us know which features are used most often and to help us understand problems if the app crashes. • If you use Gboard’s microphone, voice input will be sent to Google for transcription. What Gboard doesn’t send to Google: • Other than your searches and voice inputs, Gboard doesn't send anything you type to Google, whether it’s a password or chat with a friend. • To help you with spelling and to predict searches you might be interested in, Gboard will store the words you type on your device. This data is not accessible by Google or by any apps, and can be cleared at any time. • If you’ve turned on contacts search in Gboard search settings, this allows Gboard to search the contacts on your device so you can easily share. None of these queries are sent to Google.



  • Nice but irritating

    By istariphoenix
    You constantly suggest wrong words. Your constantly change common words like you to your when my finger hasn't even did across three "r" key. Or changing in to on You miss out on totally everyday words. Ridiculous and irritating. And your stupid "in-keyboard" microphone option in the new keyboard constantly messes up my Bluetooth
  • Predictive Text

    By KurtJohn3
    This keyboard is awful. I had to quit using Swype because predictive text doesn't work. Okay it works but you'll should like an outdoor. *Sound *idiot. And the M key causes backspace.
  • Doesn't work on Safari and Mail in the latest version of iOS

    By Jinsei888
    Doesn't work on Safari and Mail in the latest version of iOS making the app pretty unusable and annoyingly inconsistent.
  • Decent

    By russgold
    This keyboard is indispensable. Gives weird prediction sometimes or is slightly glitchy. Mostly good.
  • Missing taps. Broken for months and waiting for a good update

    By Lukster96
    Gboard used to be my favorite app. Now, I can’t even type on it. Swiping is great when it works, and it was my number one reason for switching from the Apple stock keyboard. No matter how I tap, type, swipe, it only registers about 1 in 5 taps. I can’t write the simplest of words. I’ve tried redownloading, erasing dictionary, turning settings on and off and nothing will fix it. It’s been like this since one of the updates in late 2017. Is there any way around this?
  • Freezes my iPhone

    By Outbreak.null
    I like it. Specially because of the GiF. Buuuut it freezes my phone. I’m using it on iPhone 7 plus. As soon as I switch back to Apple’s everything works fine. What a shame.
  • Emoji Key

    By Heftybags
    Come on Google I'm not a preteen girl I don't need or want an emoji key most would rather have more keyboard space. Please give an option to disable this useless button.
  • Decent until recent update

    By w0by
    worked pretty well until a recent update a few weeks ago or something, now it acts stupid like I don't know sometimes it sits there and pauses and I have to say something random and then it will write everything and mess it up it's dumb
  • Doesn't remember words

    By Etana_f
    iOS 11.3.1 Gboard does not remember my name or my email address no matter how many times I write them in I've been a Swype Keyboard user and Swype is much better with it's personal editable dictionary and better recognition to remember. But it's being discontinued. e etana.finkler etana.finkler Ryanair this is what Gboard typed, after I typed beginning part of my email It won't even remember errands... I mean, etana . It types errands instead. I am careful typing/dragging, (though with Swype I didn't have to be so careful). I don't know what dragging keyboard to use with Swype discontinued and now freezing at times. SwiftKey isn't good either. Gboard please fix your app. Unless Google wants frustrated users to leave their iPhones and buy Android. Not gonna happen.
  • Used to be good

    By Svaren
    This used to be my favorite keyboard, largely due to the glide typing, and emoji search. Glide typing is amazing, when it works. The other features like integrated search are not terribly important, but certainly not deal breakers. The actual dealbreaker came today when I realized that there is a bug or a feature that interrupts Siri usage. If you use the hey Siri commands to do something on the phone, then use the voice to text feature in the keyboard (because Google’s keyboard replaces the default input for iOS voice to text), then try to use Siri again, Siri is unavailable. Doesn’t even pick up the trigger. In the end I might not actually miss having this app. The glide to type wasn’t working correctly, The voice to type was a lot slower than native iOS, and the other features were not even being used. In fact I’m dictating this right now from my iPhone, and it works so much better.
