Gboard Update Brings Google Map And YouTube Support For IOS Users

The most popular third-party keyboard app among IOS users is Google Gboard, which has previously updated with the Google search integration. And now the company has announced another update for its Gboard for iPhone customers brings Google Maps and YouTube support. Along with these two integrations, the company has also added another new feature for artists, touted as the Ink.


The Google wants to make its app more convenient and user-friendly and want to put all the essential elements of typing into its keyboard app. Previously, we are copying and pasting if we want to share information, address, or links to our friends and colleague. But with this new update, you don’t have to do copy and paste, just simply click on Google Map and YouTube integrations. Both new integrations show up in Gboard as tabs alongside Google Search.

You might be thinking how it does work? For sharing an address, you have to just tap the G button and drop the Google Map and link into your conservation. As I mentioned above, the company has also added YouTube integration which will let you allow sharing videos easily, quickly and without doing copying and pasting the video links.

Now come to the Ink feature which is specifically added for the artist, as I mentioned above. With the Ink feature, you can draw whatever you want and even create images by yourself and send them all to show your creativity. The Ink feature works much similar as you can do with the standard iPhone keyboard in landscape mode.

Beyond these new integration supports, the company has also added three new languages to its Gboard for the IOS devices. The languages include Arabic, Hebrew, and Farsi.
