Google Keyboard crosses 500 million installs on Play Store

Himanshu, 02 January 2017

The Google keyboard app - which is now known as Gboard - has hit the 500 million installs milestone on Google Play. With this, the app has made it to the list that currently includes some biggies like Google Photos, Dropbox, and Skype.

Gboard offers several features, including glide typing, voice typing, built-in emoji and GIF search, as well as the ability to write in multiple languages at the same time.

The keyboard also features a new G button that can be used to instantly search Google for things such as nearby stores or restaurants, videos, images, news articles, sports scores, and so on.

500 thousands of installs but I guess only a quarter of it keep the bland keyboard. I installed the keyboard twice, on a different update version, both failed to impresses me. Still stuck with the Chrooma Keyboard that have way more customizeable opt...
