Gboard can now add text to GIFS, adds 28 new languages
Back in the day, keyboard apps were exactly that: keyboards. They were used to simply type, swipe, or dictate text. Nowadays, any decent keyboard app can do so much more. Google’s Gboard is a perfect example of this. Not only does it include a basic keyboard, it also has emoji, stickers, GIFs from around the internet, and even the ability to make GIFs of yourself. The latest Gboard update expands on this feature and also adds more languages.
The “Make a GIF” feature was introduced in May and it allows you to literally make GIFs with the keyboard. The 3-second clips are converted to GIFs and saved to the “My GIFs” section, so you can use them whenever you want. You can add filters and stickers if you’d like, but the latest update also adds text. Tap the “A” icon after recording a GIF and you can type on the GIF. The text includes color options and can be moved and resized.
Gboard is also getting support for a bunch of new languages. 28 languages in total have been added to the keyboard (full list below). This update is version 188.8.131.52421213. It should be rolling out to phones right now.
