With an update which began pushing out through the Play store today, Google Keyboard has taken another step towards taking over the mantle of favoured keyboard for many users. Many users sought out alternatives to the stock Google Keyboard such as Swiftkey to take advantage of features such as personalisation which have so far been missing from the stock keyboard. Today Google introduced swipe and now personalised suggestions based on input from Google Apps installed on your phone.
The option to update your dictionaries is on by default and takes words and phrases you use in apps such as Google+, Gmail, Chrome and Hangouts to better serve your needs while using the Google Stock keyboard on your device. The option can be turned off if you wish through settings by unticking the personalized suggestions box.
It’s a big leap forward for the Google Keyboard in adding such a useful function to their already impressive list.
