Gboard for iOS now offers YouTube and Google Maps tabs

Google has updated its Gboard keyboard app for iOS, adding more features to it. Gboard app for iOS now features separate YouTube and Maps tab that will let users quickly share locations and YouTube video links right into chats easier than before. It will allow users to search and share online videos right from the keyboard.

That's not all that was added by Google during the last update, the app now lets you draw an emoji on the screen to add to your conversation.

Recently, Gboard for Android added a drawing feature for emojis. We're assuming that Maps, YouTube, and Ink integration will also be added to Gboard for Android, although Google didn't say when this might happen. They will be able to search and share a video directly from the Gboard app. Now to search a specific video, type what you are looking for in the search tab and the keyboard will show four to five video options from YouTube.

Searching Google became easier with the addition of the "G" button. Just tap on the emoji button and then the pen icon to start doodling.

Apart from a different font and lighter colour-scheme, Gboard doesn't look much different than the standard iOS keyboard. In its initial release, the app already offered the most utilitarian Google Search features from directly within the keyboard.

If you are new to Gboard you will need to first set it up before you can enjoy the features. The new test feature is now only available in English, but Google has promised to add support for more languages soon. Now, with the touch of a button, users will also be able to call up YouTube and Maps.

Three new languages are supported from this point on too: Arabic, Hebrew, and Farsi. Or coming with GIF and emoji suggestions, or instant translations, and many more.
