Instead of Universal Media Keyboard, as previously rumored, Gboard 7.0 has Search all media box for all the emojis, stickers and GIFs. Now it is the first tab and features a carousel for swiping through the results of whatever you are looking for. You can search for any particular type of media with the other tabs that are not new in the app.

The keyboard picker is fixed and allows you to select more than one type of keyboard at the same time – QWERTZ, Handwriting, 10-key Korean input, whatever floats your boat. Since Gboard is in beta stage, email auto-complete does not work as well as it sounds, but we hope it’s better by the time the app goes public.

In order to get it, you have to search the Google Play store and enroll in the beta program and then proceed to download the app.
