Google Keyboard 2.0 brings Nexus 5 keyboard to an Android phone near you

Google Keyboard 2.0 brings Nexus 5 keyboard to an Android phone near you

After covering the updated versions of SwiftKey and Swype, we bring you the news about Google Keyboard. The application, now in version 2.0, is made to bring the Nexus 5-like user experience to an Android smartphone near you.

Here are the new features included in this release:

  • Rationalized punctuation across different sizes (4″, 7″ and 10″)
  • Inserted emoji entry point & layouts (KitKat or later)
  • Simplified mini-keyboard on full stop long press (revised long-press menus)
  • De-blued press states
  • Added space-aware gesture typing – you will not have to lift your finger while gesture typing – just go through the space bar

While we like how Google keeps improving its keyboard, SwiftKey keeps working best for us. As far as I can tell, it has the best prediction algorithm and it’s best for phrases we constantly use. Which virtual keyboard do you prefer?
