Google's Gboard smart keyboard gets new bells and whistles

The new features, available first to Android users, reportedly include the ability to draw an emoji and phrase suggestions.


Google's smart keyboard app is getting a little smarter. 

Gboard, an app for both Android and iOS, will get new features including the ability to draw your own emoji, as well as auto-complete a phrase. It's part of the Google's broader initiative to use machine learning to make its apps smarter. 

The updates don't show up on the Google Play Store page yet, but are supposed to roll out to Android users first. 

A spokeswoman for Google confirmed the features are being rolled out, and should be fully available in the next day or so.
