Your mobile device came with a built in keyboard, yes, but there are better options. Some of them are prettier but this one isn’t winning any beauty contests. Still, Gboard is probably one of the better keyboard options out there. This app gives you everything you need in a keyboard, beyond just the keys.
So this has all the standard bells and whistles, keyboard, glide or Swype typing, and voice typing. Good, great, standard options. It also has a built in google search so you can do all the searching you need right from your messenger window, but more importantly, emoji and gif searching so you can really communicate.
It even has multilingual typing which is great for people who communicate in multiple languages. This may not be a useful option for people who don’t use gifs to communicate but for those that do, this app gives them a bit more functionality. Gboard is a free app for Android devices.
