I like Google's strategy of launching on iOS first, Android second 😄

Hey there,

I’m Alan, a PM for Gboard and we’re super excited to bring you this new update! Starting today, Google Keyboard has become Gboard.

Gboard has all the things you love about your old Google Keyboard — speed and accuracy, Glide Typing and voice typing — plus Google Search built in. You can search and send information, GIFs, emojis and more — right from your keyboard. As an added bonus, we’ve added multilingual typing to help you switch languages on the fly.

Try it out and let us know what you think!
@alanmni Alan, I've noticed on my Moto X that the keyboard takes a really long time to initialize, meaning that no predictions or auto-corrects appear for the first few minutes after the phone has booted. I'm also finding the swipe typing to be a lot less accurate than it was before this recent update. Do you have any insight into what's happening?

@alanmni Hi Alen,
Ihave been using Gboard on IOS for months now (since the launch). This is the only keyboard I have manage to use it is so fantastic! You really did a great job!
I was wondering when will you release an Hebrew support for the Gboard! I'm willing to help 😉
@dereksilva Hey Derek, really sorry to hear that. I'll have our team look into this.
@adisilagy Great to hear Adi. No specific date for Hebrew, but adding new languages will be a priority for Gboard in 2017 so stay tuned :).

@alanmni still does not support Persian. I stick with Swiftly for now

@alanmni Hi Alan, ditto like what Derek mentioned. The keyboard takes forever to load, when it does load, it disappears, then pops back.. this is a continuous process. Love the G search within the keyboard, but it would be much more helpful if you could stabilise the main keyboard.
