Google announced late on Wednesday the launch of Google Keyboard, an app available in Google Play that gives Android devices the keyboard experience that is available on Google’s Nexus devices running stock Android.
Google announced this in a Google+ post, in which it said, “Google Keyboard has Gesture Typing (which lets you glide through letters to form a word, just lift your finger to enter a space), automatic error correction, and word predictions. You can also tap the microphone to compose messages with Voice Typing when you’re on-the-go. Together with dictionaries for 26 languages (plus keyboard layouts for a dozen more), it provides a fast, accurate, and reliable typing experience.”
“Android is an open platform, so you can customize your device to your liking; choosing your own keyboard is just one example of what’s possible – and there are a lot of great keyboards to choose from on Google Play,” Google added.
There’s a full list of keyboard apps here.
Google Keyboard is available for devices running Android 4.0 and up. It’s only available for English-speaking locales for now, but Google says it will be adding more countries.
