Google’s Gboard app is globally popular and successfully running on both, Android and iOS smartphone platforms. Recently, Google has updated its Gboard for iOS app with a new Translation feature. It’s a very useful update for the people who want to type in different languages through their iOS device.
This new feature added by Google is supported by Google’s own Google Translate app. The compatibility is very good and the feature works really well on iOS devices. It translates words and sentences in real time and as per your requirements, you can quickly select the translated words or sentences.
The new update of the Gboard app enables iOS users to type and send iMessage in different languages. They don’t need to go to the other app for translating things, the Gboard app will translate it quickly and you can even respond to the message in the same language through the Gboard app.
This new Translate feature has been made available to Gboard’s 1.42.0 version. To make use of this Translate feature, the first thing you need to check is whether your device’s Gboard app is updated or not. If not, go ahead and update it to its latest version i.e. 1.42.0.
Once you confirmed the Gboard’s version, head over to the Messages app and open the Keyboard. Go to the bottom left corner and tap on to the globe icon. This Translation icon can be found beside the white color Gboard icon within the app.
Once you select this option, you will be asked to select the preferred language. Once you select the language, hit the Translate button and the text you typed will be translated to the desired language within iMessage’s field. You will be able to use this feature whenever you want, all you need to do is just press the Translate button.
To change the desired language, you need to go through the same process and change the language from the Translate section.
Apart from sending just text, you can also send a variety of items such as GIFs, Stickers, Emojis and much more from one single app.
