As promised, Google I/O is featuring many advancements every day and has been adding up innumerable features which a tech addict could not resist not to try out. Android N Preview 3 came in only last day and here the great news is. It came along with Google Keyboard 5.1 version which is thought to have come with slight advancements of v5.0.
Google Keyboard 5.0 was updated only recently with new gestures and features abound. But sad, this version was not seen compatible with Android N and hence, may not benefit those who are using its preview. So, when the Android N Preview 3 is out, it came along Google Keyboard 5.1 that added some irresistible features and uncountable emojis. As promised by Google I/O, it brought in a number of themes and keyboard customizations.
Google Keyboard 5.1 Featuring Several New Themes, Keyboard Customization, More Emojis:
So, when you install this very new Google Keyboard 5.1, open the keyboard settings where one can find a section for ‘Themes’. Here is where you can easily change the theme of your keyboard using the number of available options. The preview keyboard can help you decide to stick to a particular theme colour out of the available 13 solid and bright colours. You can even switch between ‘show’ and “hide key borders”.
Are you not satisfied? Then, try this. You can change the keyboard background by setting an image of your choice. Doesn’t it sound interesting? You can simply drag a photo of your choice, crop well and apply the custom transparency on top of it. A really nice graphic can give a very nice and attractive finish to your keyboard.
Lots and Lots of Emojis
Now, let us move on to the emojis now. The recent earlier versions of Google Keyboard has come up with a number of emojis but they were not accessible, in the sense, you were able to see them but were not able to type them and forward. Google Keyboard 5.1 clears all these issues. The 5.1 version of Google Keyboard is supporting a number of new emojis that is included in Android N. Though, Android N Second Preview did not provide accessibility to the emojis, the latest and third preview is helping for the same.
There is a number of accessible emojis now with this Google Keyboard 5.1 and Android N Preview 3 combination. All those human-like emojis in different complexions and different expressions and other cute faces will sure make you do a lot of swiping.
Google Keyboard 5.1 Version is totally compatible with only Android N Preview 3 now. Other devices with Android 6 and Android 5.1 can be able to access the themes but not the emojis. Who knows? As the improvisations are seen every day, we may be able to access these very new features in Android versions too.
