Update, 08/14/2017, 11:10 ET: In addition to the new Indian languages Google announced voice support for earlier today, the company has also revealed a number of other languages now compatible with Gboard and Voice Search. In a blog post titled “type less, talk more,” Google highlighted 13 more languages now supported as part of its efforts to make the internet more inclusive. These are:Amharic (Ethiopia) Armenian (Armenia) Azerbaijani (Azerbaijani) English (Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania) Georgian (Georgia) Javanese (Indonesia) Khmer (Cambodian) Lao (Laos) Latvian (Latvia) Nepali (Nepal) Sinhala (Sri Lanka) Sundanese (Indonesia) Swahili (Tanzania, Kenya)
Google has released a beta update for Gboard (6.3) that adds a bunch of new features to the popular keyboard app.
When you perform a search in Gboard, you now see multiple results in the form of a carousel of cards. Although the previous version did support this, it only worked with a limited number of queries. When it comes to location searches, Gboard used to display all the results in a vertical list. This has changed with the new version, as locations are now presented as cards that offer various shortcuts, allowing you to make a phone call, get directions, or open a location in Google Maps.See also: Google Search just made art education much more [...]
