  • Gboard for iPhone adds drawing, Maps and YouTube - Google Blog

Google's virtual keyboard app Gboard has rolled out new features for iOS by adding integration with Google Maps and YouTube, and an option for artists where they can draw and doodle.

The Maps option will let you share your current location or a local address with friends and family. Moreover, it will also enable users to search and share YouTube videos without separately launching the YouTube app.

Gboard has since been updated with additional features like GIF and emoji suggestions, one-handed mode, smarter phrase suggestions and instant translation.

The iOS version of Gboard was launched by Google in 2016, and has attracted loads of interest from users. Just tap on the emoji button followed by the pen icon and get to work!

To search for a YouTube video on the Gboard app, simply tap on the "G" button, followed by YouTube to search for any video of your choice. While adding new features to a keyboard could clutter its interface before long, YouTube and Maps are natural fits for Gboard, integrating well both from a functionality standpoint and in their placement in the interface.

They then need to tap the "G" google search button. Now to search a specific video, type what you are looking for in the search tab and the keyboard will show four to five video options from YouTube.

At its launch, the Gboard app offered its users an easy way of searching for news, flight times, business listings, restaurants, and several others. You can share searched videos with your friends without leaving the Gboard app on your iOS smartphone. Finally, the latest version of Gboard for iPhone and iPad brings support for three new languages: Hebrew, Arabic, and Farsi. Now, with the touch of a button, users will also be able to call up YouTube and Maps.
