It now lets users create the keyboard float and move it around the screen. Together with the floating keyboard attribute, tapping on the Gboard’s G icon will get you the newest Floating option. To recall, an APK teardown of the previous version of the program in September had discovered it to be preparing to deliver the new floating keyboard along with a bunch of new features. It now seems to be available for most Android users. Meanwhile, an APK teardown of the most recent Gboard app version has individually hinted at a couple of upcoming features. For the time being, there isn’t any information about when this functionality will hit Gboard for iOS, if at all. Similar to the SwiftKey floating keyboard, users will now have the ability to move the Gboard around after undocking it. The floating keyboard can be placed anywhere on the display and may be resized or even employed for swipe typing. Further, tap the brand new Floating option. Now, you will have the ability to drag the keyboard around by tapping and holding it. Especially, to dock the Gboard back into its original place and size, drag it to the bottom of the display. Interestingly, on leaving the computer keyboard untouched, it seems translucent and reveals the app behind it.
It’s worth noting that the Gboard’s changelog on the Google Play Store doesn’t mention that the floating keyboard attribute, but Justabcd was able to get it on some handsets. If you are still not getting the choice however, do note that Google might roll it out to more Android devices soon. The report claims that there are 47 additions to the record, including those inserted in earlier releases.
Meanwhile, version 7.6 of Gboard has revealed a range of features are under development. People at Android Police have decompiled the APK to view several lines of code that hint at possible upcoming features. It hints at upcoming Halloween GIFs along with new languages. The report claims that Gboard will be including a category for Halloween GIFs before the festival.
You can download the APK file of the latest program (v220.127.116.11180289-beta) out of APK Mirror to experience the new Gboard program attributes. Meanwhile, there isn’t any certainty when we can see the attributes discovered via the APK teardown.
