The new update brings international and language support, smart GIF suggestions and a way to customize the keyboard look and feel.

Gboard already works in U.S., Europe, Canada and Australia and today it has been expanded to French, German, Italian, Portuguese (Brazil and Portugal) and Spanish (Spain).
