Google Keyboard for Android with gesture typing was updated it yesterday on Google Play Store after it was published recently. You can use voice typing while on-the-go using this keyboard app. The Nexus users are already using this keyboard and its features from Android 4.0 ICS version. This is the same keyboard which Google used to put inside Nexus devices.

Really a nice keyboard app from Google with dynamic floating preview.

The app also shows the trail while you are swiping along the keyboard. This app is compatible with both phones and tablets. Users can use dictionaries with the support of 26 languages at the moment.

My Settings for Google Keyboard
First thing what I do is, I tick out the box says ‘Vibrate on key-press and Sound on key-press’ from any keyboard settings. I did the same with this keyboard, nothing more for the settings. There are some nice options in the settings menu, have it your way. If you use German (QWERTY) or French (QWERTZ) you can change the settings from Advanced Settings > Custom input styles. If you are using vibrate on key-press you can test some more options from Advanced settings.
You can use the Add-on dictionaries to download and use dictionary feature of 26 available languages. Emoji’s are available to download.
