Gboard, Google’s keyboard app for Android was updated last week, bringing some fancy new features for the people who use it.
Gboard users on Android now get a lot more to do with the app. Google updated the keyboard with the ability to share Bitmoji and branded stickers in the messaging apps of their choice – in fact “any app that supports image pasting.” They can also send Google Allo selfie stickers.
The update also brings users the ability to download sticker packs and the Bitmoji app to send Bitmoji or branded stickers in any app they use with the Gboard keyboard. After they’ve downloaded sticker packs and the Bitmoji app, all users have to do is tap the emoji button and choose between stickers or Bitmojis. Then they can search for the stickers or Bitmojis they want to use, depending on the initial choice.
To download more branded sticker packs, users need to tap on the plus (+) button in the sticker tab. Branded stickers include themes like Star Wars, Hello Kitty, the National Basketball Association and many more. For the time being these are the only available stickers, but more will follow in the near future.
