If you’re over having to launch Chrome to search for argument-winning trivia answers while messaging with friends, Google has you covered.
Gboard, its new keyboard purpose-built for the smartphone, comes with a built-in search function that you can access with a quick tap of the “G” symbol.After launching in the U.S. in May, the keyboard made it to Australia Friday and is now available to downloadDown Under.
Apart from its smooth search functionality, the keyboard also comes with glide typing, GIF search and emoji search, which can be used across your apps, from Slack to Uber.
It also makes finding the perfect emoji a little easier than on your typical iOS keyboard, allowing you to search for emoji by name “lol,” for example rather than requiring you to scroll through multiple pages.
