GBoard for Android Gains Stickers and Bitmoji
Google today updated its GBoard mobile keyboard application for Android devices and added a handful of new, interactive features. Chiefly, the app gains support for stickers, which you can now slap into messages. Users will need to download sticker packs from the Play Store, which are then accessed by tapping the emoji key on the keyboard. Google says it worked with a handful of content partners, including Mickey Mouse, NBAmoji, Google Allo selfie stickers, Disney Princesses, Hello Kitty, Garfield, Power Rangers, and Star Wars, to ensure that free stickers are available. GBoard also adds support for Bitmoji, which needs to be installed separately in order to be accessed via GBoard. Gboard is free to download from the Google Play Store.
