Gboard shortcuts and emoji mashups
By Paolo Amoroso • Issue #57 • View online
Hello,
I’m a stock kind of guy.
I have always been using Android devices by Google as my daily drivers. I never customized them much other than installing an alternate keyboard app for a brief time, SwiftKey. Later, I switched back to stock when Google released Gboard on Android — after it had been available on iOS for a while, of course.
What Gboard doesn’t provide in accurate text predictions, it makes up for with versatility through a wide selection of shortcuts and features. This helps with expressivity, for example, by allowing new kinds of emojis.
The resources in this issue elaborate on Gboard’s capabilities.
