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.



  • Only a few more fixes and I'd possibly switch

    By Mrlemmers
    Finally Google decided to add dynamic themes to the keyboard which was something I had been asking for, for a long time. Props for finally listening because the keyboard blends so much better with iOS now. They have haptic feedback similar to the stock keyboard as well as voice dictation. The area which I think the keyboard could be improved would be the slide to type. It's inconsistent at best, if you have the sounds enabled, it likes to skip around a bunch which causes odd words to show up. It would also be nice to have a thicker slide trail more similar to the Android version. As far as the auto correction goes it's pretty close to the stock keyboard aside from the fact that it isn't able to do retroactive corrections. Don't know if this is possible or not but would be awesome to see added.
  • Great, buggy

    By Swissglide
    Great keyboard, almost as good as the stock Android version of GBoard. But buggy - fails to appear, covers text entry fields, drains battery in the background.

  • Emoji and font focus questionable

    By DavidCrosmierIII
    Why do all the keyboard replacements have a focus on emoji entering and providing fonts. Maybe some folks like this, but as soon as I see either one of these words I move on! A keyboard should allow faster & less error prone entry of what is most typically entered. That would be text for those that are challenged by using words. This keyboard is a waste of time.
  • Needs more tuning on iPhone X!

    By lawStudentMIA
    No matter which theme is selected, that ugly gray keyboard chin does not change! It bothered me so much that I had to find the hexcode for that color gray, then Google a plain color image in that color, then use that as the background of my custom theme. C'Mon Google! You have the superior predictive keyboard with the best privacy policy! Figure this out! Thanks.
  • Keyboard

    By Rubigeee
    Why do the letters on the keyboard look so light, faded, and almost blurry compared to the original keyboard ?? It's making my eyes hurt !!! But I'm going to try it anyways because I want to try to voice to text option.
  • Using the keyboard

    By Justawantabe
    I love that the keybord changes colors when the background changes colors. I love that the keybord has access to google and you don't need to change keybords to have access to the stock emojis and the Google emojis. I also love the fact that there is a gif area included within the keybord and a drawing area that you have to pick and it's just in the same area as the Emojis so you don't have to look for the button on the stock keybord.
  • Portrait/landscape issue

    By Tiktoc
    This is so great until I turn my phone sideways, especially in Facebook messenger but also in iOS messages app. It seems to hang a bit and I have to close and reopen the messaging app to reset the keyboard.
