New Gboard recommendations bar interprets emoji into GIFs and stickers

Back in July, our APK Insight of Gboard revealed work on a brand new recommendations characteristic that primarily interprets emoji into GIFs and stickers. “Emoji browsing suggestions” at the moment are starting to roll out for some Android customers.

In the emoji keyboard, there’s a brand new “Suggestions” bar that prompts you to “Tap an emoji to get suggestions.” Selecting a personality will load associated GIFs and stickers so that you can insert into any dialog.

Suggest GIF/Sticker content material when you choose emojis within the emoji keyboard.

Displayed in opposition to a white background, you possibly can swipe by the Gboard translate outcomes, with the media to your final entered emoji remaining even if you happen to delete what was entered.

If none can be found, a “No suggestions here… try a different emoji” message will seem accompanied by a enjoyable ghost animation. There is a settings gear within the top-right that opens Gboard’s most important Preferences web page. Under format, “Emoji browsing suggestions” could be toggled on/off. For some, the additional vertical peak launched by this characteristic is distracting.

So far, this characteristic is showing on the latest Gboard 8.8 beta. The Gboard emoji translator shouldn’t be extensively rolled out, and a few which have the bar enabled can not get it to work correctly. It comes as Google plans to deprecate the power to seek for emoji by doodling.

Thanks RKBDI and Jondan!
