Google Keyboard on Play Store

Google has launched its own Keyboard on the Play Store for Android users to download.

Plenty of Google's own apps are available to download from the Play Store. The internet search giant has now added its own keyboard to the list.

If you're fed up with the keyboard on your Android smartphone or tablet and don't want to pay for an alternative such as SwiftKey, then this will be music to your ears.

The Google Keyboard has all the features which were introduced with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean including gesture typing with dynamic floating preview and voice typing (dictation). It also has next-word prediction, current-word completions and advanced keyboard layouts.

We really like the stock Android keyboard so if you're fed up with your own or don't know what you're missing out on then head to the Google Play Store now. It's free and is available for smartphones and tablets (4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and above).
