Wow! Google Offers Animoji Alternative For Android
In our daily lives, the use of emoji and stickers to communicate is becoming more frequent and a way of expressing what we think or feel.
As we all know very well that in January of this year, the tech giant Google implemented on its keyboard for iOS the functionality to create GIFs.
After a few months, this functionality is finally coming to Android smartphones, and may already be tested in the current beta version of Gboard.
Nowadays, for both Android and iOS, there is a growing number of keyboards that allow you to customize the user’s writing experience, both in looks and in smart features.
The tech giant Google has maintained its focus on this market for both mobile operating systems since the early days and has been trying to come up with a solution that is as reliable, complete and personalized as possible.
Earlier in January, the tech giant Google introduced the possibility of creating GIFs on its iOS keyboard, hence, later the tech giant Google also introduced this feature to Android smartphone users as well.
Again to make the Gboard (for iOS) more exclusive the tech giant Google recently introduced an amazing feature that let its users communicate with Morse code. And not only that even the alternative of the tech giant Google’s keyboard for Android also gained some improvements.
In both systems, the tool offers an improved typing experience, capable of recognizing non-alphabetic characters such as “%”. Users can change the QWERTY pattern by points and dashes of Morse code at any time.
The feature makes the Gboard more inclusive, as many people with reduced mobility use Morse code to communicate. Thinking about it, the tech giant Google also allows the tool to be used with various external devices.
Now, in order to make our messages more personal, the tech giant Google’s Gboard now allows you to create stickers based on a selfie. From early on, the smiles began to be used to send messages in order to personalize the message that was intended to be sent.

In order to make these elements more personal and personalized, the tech giant Google introduced in the latest version of its keyboard the “Mini“, a new feature that allows the user to create stickers from a simple selfie. Although the result is not 100% faithful, it already allows a good approximation of the real aspect.
