Google wants to hijack your Apple device Gboard.
Like Swipe, Gboard is a third party keyboard option to make typing faster on an iPhone.
Unlike Swipe, it also comes with its own search bar for emojis, gifs, or even plane tickets.
Here's what you need to make the plunge First, download the Gboard apps from the apps store.
Open the apps and hit get started or go directly to the keyboard option under general in your settings.
Now, select add keyboard and you should see the Gboard option.
Once you've added it to your list of keyboards click on it again and allow.
You can also make it your default keyboard by pressing Edit, press and hold the stripe on the right and drag to the first position.
Now go back to that text message and test it out.
If it's not the first one that pops up, just press the world icon and get started.
Now swipe, type or search, you can pretty much search for anything, nearby restaurants if you're trying to schedule a dinner date Where the gift that best describes your mood by selecting the gift tab on the bottom of the search results screen.
The image will be saved once you click on it to later paste manually onto your message bar.
Yeah and you won't have to waste any more time flipping through Emoji options.
Google even has a search bar for that.
Just press the happy face and type what you're looking for.
iPhones, apparently, not an option.
It's not perfect, but it's like having the power of Google search bar right on your keyboard without interrupting that conversation.
