Google Keyboard Now Gets Suggestions From Other Google Services

I personally feel that the Google Keyboard is underrated. It’s a perfectly good keyboard and is there by default on the Nexus and Google Play Edition devices. One of its downfalls was often that it suggested something incorrectly. Now that’s been fixed.

Previously the Google Keyboard would only learn suggestions from when you either backtracked on an autocorrection or manually picked a word that it offered. Now the keyboard is smarter because it can learn what you type into other Google services, such as Gmail, Google Search, Maps, etc.

If you don’t want this feature, you can go into the settings and disable it. And right after you install this update, Google will offer to automatically take you into the settings to disable this feature. But since the keyboard now syncs with the rest of your queries, would you want to?

  1. I like this as I’m usually typing in the same things a lot of the time. This saves time and frustration of having to correct what you’ve typed because it suggests something completely different.

  2. Yeah, definitely. I can’t wait to start seeing results from Google’s robotics movement. Oh! And their home automation!

  3. Google keyboard is certainly one of the most underrated software. The error rate is almost negligible. Yet Google invests time to improve it. Good job Google.

  4. I think it’s an under-the-hood upgrade so it’s not that noticeable unless you are keen to see a slight difference in how the keyboard gives you relevant searches.

  5. Oh. I had not observed this at all. Good to know that Google is trying to unify everything.

  6. Another great idea from Google. For people using Google services, this is really convenient. It makes searches a lot faster with suggestions.
    Keep it up Google.

  7. Good addition. Hope this improves the productivity to some extent. But I don’t see this as a major issue. Its all artificial intelligence, and you can’t expect it to work the way you want right away. The Google Keyboard is an awesome app in itself.
