Gboard for Android uses AI to suggest GIFs, emoji, and stickers during conversation


Google has announced that starting today, Gboard will use AI to suggest GIFs, emoji, and stickers to you related to your conversation. This makes it easier and faster to share and communicate your feelings while having a conversation.

The app will have a “GIF” icon that will appear in the top left corner of Gboard. Tap it, and you’ll see a selection of GIFs, emoji and stickers that Gboard thinks you might want to share. If you’re typing “Awesome!” Gboard will suggest this sticker. To make sure these suggestions are private to you and take place as fast as possible, this feature is processed entirely on your device.

This feature is initially available globally for Gboard for Android in English only. Over time, it will be expanded to Gboard suggestions to more languages, and more types of content to help you do and say more right from your conversation.
