Gboard google translate

Google has updated a handful of their iOS apps lately, bringing more features and support for iPhone and iPad users.

The company’s Gboard iOS keyboard now supports Google Translate, allowing you to translate text right within your iOS keyboard. The feature supports “all the languages supported by Google Translate. Find translate in the suggestion strip or behind the Google button,” explains Google.

The implementation is pretty seamless within Gboard. Just tap the Translate icon and you can then type or paste in text. Google Translate will autodetect the language which you can then translate by selecting a language on the right.

Google Translate currently supports 103 languages.

Other Google iOS app changes:

  • Google Photos for iOS also now supports Siri Shortcuts, meaning you can now ask Siri to “view latest photo”, after you setup a shortcut.
  • Google Drive for iOS now has a “faster and easier with the brand new redesigned version of Google Drive”
  • Google Translate for iOS now lets you “Start bilingual conversations using Siri Shortcuts on iOS 12”

Google currently has 70 iOS apps within Apple’s App Store in Canada.
