One of the more popular keyboard options available for Android, the beta version of Google’s homegrown Gboard keyboard received an update that brings incognito mode, along with other features and visual redesigns.
Starting with Gboard’s incognito mode, the feature will not remember any words and, as such, will not store those words in Gboard’s history.
