    Gboard is a very advanced virtual keyboard, made by not someone else but Google themselves. Apart from having top-notch word prediction capabilities, dictionary syncing, built-in theming options, and so on, with the newest update, it gets even smarter and useful than ever.

    Version 8.3.9 from June 3rd is set out to come with support for Android Q and Emoji 12.0. Furthermore, it now provides easier access to the bundled clipboard tool with snippets and whatnot, remembers the skin tone and gender preferences for your emojis, lets you import and export your personal dictionary words, and, in addition, from now on you can delete your Google search history directly from the keyboard itself. To do so, you just have to long-press on the search keywords that you have used last.

    If you have started feeling bored from switching between the limited number of dull themes in your go-to keyboard app - Gboard, today is a lucky day for you, because Google has indeed begun enabling remotely for a large population of their keyboard's userbase a whopping amount of 53 brand new gradient style themes, which come in two different types - with 25 light ones and 28 dark themes. Because of this light/dark grouping, the navigation bar color has also been set to change to black or white, when using the keyboard, depending on the theme style that has been chosen and the device itself, of course. So, if you are not using a Pixel phone, this may not work for you at all. Speaking of Pixel's, there is the long-awaited "sand" theme finally coming out, which matches perfectly the "Not Pink" models of Google's device lineup released for 2018.

    Below is the official changelog for version 7.8.10 posted on the Play Store, which mentions the additional languages that are supported from now on in Gboard.

    The latest Gboard update enables a new feature named minis. Minis are user-customizable stickers. Basically, you have to take a photo of your face and you will get a sticker pack just in a couple of seconds. With that said, there are a ton of options for you to choose what your avatar will look like by changing every characteristic of your avatars face. The options are divided into 10 categories, and here they are with all of the settings:
