Google Adds Over 20 Languages to Gboard

Google has now added over 20 languages to its virtual keyboard app Gboard, according to a report published in Gadgets Now on March 7, 2018.

With the addition of over 20 languages including Chinese and Korean, Google is largely expanding the reach of Gboard. Support for lesser-known languages are also added in the app. For Android, new languages will come up first on the virtual keyboard app. With this new addition, this app now supports over 300 varieties of language, which means that 74 percent of the world’s population is covered by them.

Angana Ghosh, Product Lead, Gboard said, “Though today’s update includes some of the world’s most widely-spoken languages, we’re equally focused on making sure lesser-known languages, like Manx and Maori, are represented in the keyboard.” The company said that they are thankful to all the linguists and native speakers who helped them to add more languages into Gboard app. They also added that there are many more people they should meet to discover new languages.
Gboard was available to iOS users in May 2016 and in December 2016 it was available to Android users. Assamese, Awadhi, Bengali, Bundeli, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Kashmiri, Konkani, Marathi and Sanskrit are the languages currently available to the users of Gboard. This new development coincides with the emerging market strategy of Google, which is the creation of low-bandwidth version of its apps. The main objective of the company is to provide with apps that work offline to the world’s next mobile users. Such apps will help save battery life and will not require strong signal.
This development in Google app will increase the growth of flagship smartphone market, as elaborated in the flagship smartphone market report published by Coherent Market Insights.
