It us a keyboard, why would it need location? If not for making miney out of you? I also hope you realise you write even your passwords with it... yeah, they can see them.

Gboard emoji bar is a copied feature from Bobble Keyboard which has this feature since 2016 and in much better shape. Try out Bobble Keyboard and you will forget Gboard because of its multiple convenient features, expressive content and language efficiency.

Anonymous, 17 Jul 2020I prefer SwiftKey over GboardI used to pick swiftkey over Gboard for better predictions. But than I realized that the swipe gestures on Gboard (on space and delete keys) are very useful.. now I am on Gboard. Also Gboard have integration with bitmoji (a great app for emoji like on iPhone).

Just another "feature" that I may only use for a week then disable it forever. Lol. This will not bode well on splitscreen, I can guarantee it.

Well, it's been almost a day since I started using this feature (I am enrolled in Beta) and I'd say it ain't that necessary a feature, it's useful no doubt but only a certain situations.

Everybody prefers SwiftKey and other keyboards.

Why don't they focus on more important things like implementing a way to know your battery health straight into android like they have on ios now that's something I doubt anybody would complain they stole from Apple
