Google has updated its Google Keyboard application for Android devices to version 5.1. The improved keyboard now allows users to move the cursor by sliding their finger across the space bar. Other new actions include the ability to delete entire words by sliding left from the delete key, and remove learned or dictionary words by long pressing suggestions. New settings options make it possible to add key borders or symbol hints. Phablet owners will be happy to learn the keyboard now has a one-handed mode for typing on large phones. Last, the keyboard adds gesture typing for a number of new languages, including Afrikaans, Armenian, Azerbaijani, Belarusian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Estonian, Galician, Georgian, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Kazakh, Kyrgyz, Macedonian, Malay, Persian, Slovak, Swahili, Tagalog, Ukrainian, Uzbek, and Vietnamese. Google Keyboard 5.1 is free to download from the Google Play Store.
