According to the reports, soon users of iOS may receive a new keyboard from the tech giant Google.
Google Is Developing Their Own Keyboard Application For iOS
[dropcap]The[/dropcap] American multinational technology company Google might be developing a third-party keyboard for Apple iOS. According to the foreign site TheVerge, services are dedicated to the Apple devices and the report also states that the “keyboard has been developed for months” which is “visually different” from the keyboard version currently available for the Android devices. With this keyboard, Google intends to install its search engine place at a crucial interface of the iPhone so that users can fulfill their questions without going to a different app.
The typing system would be similar which was already known by the Android OS users, because Google keyboard typing includes gestures, so that the users can slide their finger from one letter to another, and Google will guess the word which you want, and to access the traditional web search, just tap on the Google logo. The keyboard also seems to have separate buttons for both photos and GIF search, and probably both will be powered by Google Image search. So, very soon iOS users will have another option for the specific keyboard. But still it is unclear that when Google plans to release.
Third parties developed keyboards are supported on Apple devices since iOS version 8.1. Companies like Swype, Swiftkey and Fleksy are the few suppliers of alternatives to Apple’s stock keyboard and With this keyboard, Google could control the user interface for users to search, thus increasing the number of searches from iOS devices. The company almost has a monopoly over the global search market, there is evidence that mobile search is proving much less profitable for Google than done on the desktop. Now, the company that dominates the market of the searches seems to be watching, still, in implementing their services from competing platform to Android.
A high percentage of searches on the desktop is done by the keywords like “Facebook” or “Gmail“, but,this are unnecessary on mobile devices. However, Google employees have been using the keyboard on their devices for months and is designed to increase the number of searches made through mobile devices because, despite the clear dominance of the company in this segment, searches from these devices are much less profitable for the company as we mentioned earlier.
