The GBoard digital keyboard is about to receive an update that will make several interesting features available to users, such as a quick shortcut to Google Lens and a theme with color adaptation for the visual version implemented directly in the operating system.
The discovery was made by 9to5Google and shared by the competent developers responsible for XDA Developers, where they showed the features, which were found in version 9.6.3, which is the latest beta of GBoard.
In addition to emojis that will be present on Android 11, some data was found using codes that quote the entry of the dictation function instead of the already known voice typing. Now, it will also have a shortcut in the form of a key straight to Google Lens, staying above the normal line, in the same row where the microphone is located.
On the visual side, Google is adding the theme “Standard Black”, which adds as an addition to “Standard White”, allowing that, when switching the phone to dark mode, the user can take advantage of an adapted version of the keyboard, giving a uniformity that was not present previously.
