Google Keyboard for Android now available as a Play Store download
If you have been searching for an easy way to get the whole Nexus typing experience for Android onto your own device, we’re here to tell you that your search is over. Today, Google Keyboard was added to the Google Play Store — announced via the Android page on Google+ — and anyone with a compatible device may now download it for free.
If, for whatever reason, you still haven’t gotten the chance to try out the Google Keyboard yourself, all you need to know is that it offers the stock Android typing experience, which is why it’s referred to as the Nexus typing experience above. It is said to transform the usual method of typing into something that is smart and easy, so if you’re big on actually being able to type the words that you want to say, then this is something that you definitely need to look into.
Google Keyboard should offer Gesture Typing, a feature that lets users glide their typing fingers through keys in order to type words, as well as automatic error correction, and even word predictions. Tapping on the microphone in Google Keyboard enables Voice Typing for easy message composition on the go. And built-in dictionaries ensure that the best typing experience is available for up to 26 different languages.
If you still don’t have it on your own Android-powered smartphone or tablet yet (and you’re using Android 4.0 or later), then check out the Google Play link in the source below to install it.
