Google today announced that Gboard now lets people type in more than 500 languages on their phones. More than 90% of the world's population has access to Gboard in their native tongue. The company has added more than 100 new languages in the last few months to reach this milestone. Some of the newest include Nigerian Pidgin, Rangpuri, Balinese, Choctaw, Kamba, Teso, Trinidadian Creole, and Pontic Greek. The company has focused efforts on adding languages that do not rely on the western alphabet. Google says Gboard supports more than 40 writing systems, all with support for auto-complete and word suggestions via artificial intelligence. Google believes its newest additions are important because they are not widely written and are rarely found online. Adding more languages is particularly key for countries and regions that are still developing internet, communications, and information services. The latest version of Gboard, free to download from the Google Play Store, added 50 languages.
