Watch this: Use Gboard for iPhone to search while you text

Sorry Android fans, Google decided to give its slick, new Gboard keyboard to iPhone and iPad devices first. Gboard lets you search for emojis and GIFs right from the keyboard. It also brings the ability to enter text via Glide typing.

Google has integrated its powerful search abilities into Gboard, too. That means you'll be able to look up info for people, places and more, and paste them directly into messages without having to flip between apps.
