Google allows finger drawing to search for emoticons across Gboard




Google has released a new version of its keyboard application called Gboard , which relies on many of the company’s artificial intelligence technologies. The version includes many new interesting updates to speed up and facilitate the conversations of users of its system to run mobile devices Android.

Google launched the keyboard for the first time users of the operating system IOS in May and reached the users of Android seven months after the launch of Apple, and did not work on the launch of the keyboard separately, where Gboard is a reproduction of the application Google Keyboard.

The Gboard integrates in-app search capabilities so that users can find GIF animations and emoji emoticons as well as search for information online. Google has previously introduced some artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques into the application. The new update builds up a large amount of Recent initiatives to blur the lines between human creativity and machinery.

Keyboard users wishing to embed emoticons in the message can use the on-screen graphic feature in the search box for emoticons to display the emoji that the company believes matches or resembles the graphic on the screen.

It seems that the company has derived this feature from the technology contained in its application called AutoDraw, which provided a few months ago, so that the application in turn turns the graphics and scribbles different to the art drawings arranged.

It is not yet clear how quickly the graphic on the screen is converted into emoticons as opposed to the manual search for emoticons. Such a feature appears to be tailored to Google’s proprietary technology and provide a practical view of what the R & D department has learned in general machine learning.

This feature is similar to other popular keyboards such as SwiftKey, which Microsoft acquired last year. The company now has this feature in English only, although it will soon be adding more languages.
