Google Keyboard themes version 5.1 3

If you’ve been using the Android N developer preview or played around with a phone that has it, you likely would have come across customizable Google Keyboard themes. Well, that nifty little feature is now rolling out via a Google Keyboard update in Google Play. The version of the Google Clock found in the Android N preview is also updating in Google Play.

Besides themes, there’s nothing much of note in the Google Keyboard 5.1 update. You’ll get the fancy new theme tool with over a dozen different colors and the ability to use a photo as a background. You’ll also be able to flip a switch to determine whether you want borders around your keys or not.

Version 4.5.1 of the Clock app (also from the N preview) is also rolling out now. It adds support for Android 7.0 Nougat (onbviously), multi-window and direct boot (so an alarm can sound before your phone has fully booted up).

Hit the button below to grab the updates but note they are rolling out in stages so they may take a while to appear in your region.

What background image are you going to use for your keyboard? Which clock app do you use?
