Google Gboard Now Supports GIF, Emoji and Sticker AI Suggestions, New Language Support, and More


Google has officially announced that Gboard will now use an on-device AI to provide smart suggestions for stickers, GIFS, and emoji based on what users are typing. Aside from that, the app has also gained support for 40 new languages.
