Gboard v7.4 prepares floating keyboard, selfie stickers called Minis, spell check, and much more [APK Teardown]

The Gboard team is working hard to create new features in their application, and the latest update shows how much effort has been devoted. Some additions are already visible, including spell checking, a mini mode for the Morse code keyboard and an adaptive icon. Although, the spell checking function still seems to be disabled. As for a disassembly, we can see the development in Minis, which are basically a variant of Allo's Selfie stickers. Gboard is always working to achieve a floating keyboard, more Make GIF effects and more. There are also lots of improvements for many different languages.


Unofficial change log: (things we found)

  • Spell check
  • Morse code mini keyboard mode
  • Adaptive icon [19659007] Spell check

    There have been complaints about broken spell checking behaviors for quite some time, so it's not too surprising to see that Gboard is recovering with a fix. According to the latest slogan "What's new in Gboard?", This version will now highlight spelling errors in red, and notes that this feature can be disabled.

    Interestingly, while I received this banner immediately after updating, the spell checker is not really working for me and there are no signs of toggling in the text correction settings. However, I can confirm by a disassembly that the text for the configuration exists, so it is likely that it is a temporary problem that will probably be solved in a few hours.

    Morse code: mini keyboard

    If you are a keyboard user with morse code, you can now claim a bit of your screen thanks to a new mini keyboard option that cuts the height of the point and slides the buttons approximately in the middle.

    To enable the mini keyboard, open the language setting and tap the Morse code keyboard, then look for the switch at the bottom of the list.

    Also in a visual note, the configuration of the wait times for letters and words has been redesigned so that the time-out sliders can be modified directly on the page. In the latest version, he had to touch on one of the elements to open a pop-up dialog box.

    Icon Adaptable

    Left: v7.3. Right: v7.4

    It seems like an eternity, since we talked about a Google application that gets the update to an adaptable icon, but it turns out that some applications have not yet been made switch. Gboard is fashionable until the party, but it's never a bad time to see less icons on the plate (or the tear, so to speak).

    I'd say it matters, but by some silly accident, it matters a lot less with this update. It turns out that there is an error in the latest version of Gboard that automatically removes the icon from the initiator and the drawer of the application. Yes, even if you have enabled the configuration to show the initiator icon, it will be deleted only seconds after the update. The icon will obviously still be visible in the list of applications within Settings, summary screen and elsewhere.


    Disclaimer: Disassemblies are based on evidence found within the apk (Android application package) and are necessarily speculative and usually based on incomplete information. It is possible that the assumptions made here are erroneous or inaccurate. Even when the predictions are correct, there is always the possibility that the products change or cancel. Like the rumors, nothing is certain until it has been officially announced and published.

    The features described below are probably not yet live, or can only be live for a small percentage of users. Unless stated otherwise, do not expect to see these features if you install the apk. All screenshots and images are real, unless otherwise indicated, and images are only modified to delete personal information.

    Floating Keybaord

    Floating keyboards are not a new concept, we have seen quite a few developers implement them with their own keyboard applications. The ideal benefit is that they can allow the use of the entire screen for an application and, at the same time, an on-screen keyboard that can be moved anywhere that is not in the way. In practice, they are generally not very efficient, but they can be useful in certain circumstances. Now it seems that Gboard has a crack in a floating keyboard.
