Google today updated its GBoard application for the iPhone and gave the keyboard some powerful new tools. Moving forward, a tap of the "G" button calls up not only Google Search, but YouTube and Google Maps as well. Google says this should make it easier to share video content or location details when composing messages. The YouTube link lets GBoard users jump into YouTube to grab video links and put them into emails or other messages. The Maps tool is chiefly for sharing your location instantly with others, but also allows users to insert a local address or point of interest. GBoard now includes a doodle tool for fun. Tapping the emoji button and then the new pen button makes it possible to create drawings for sharing. Last, GBoard picks up support for Arabic, Farsi, and Hebrew. GBoard for the iPhone is free to download from the iTunes App Store.
