The features have been added to the latest version of Gboard for iOS, enabling iPhone and iPad users who have downloaded the update to access voice dictation — or what Google called “voice typing” — simply by pressing and holding the space bar to take you to a new screen with a mic interface.

Other new features include the addition of 15 new languages, including Dutch, Russian, Malay, and Polish, access to the latest emojis, and quick access to Google’s Doodles — the popular animations that appear on the Google home page to celebrate special days and events.

The new features are currently available on the iOS version of Gboard. — AFP-Relaxnews
