Google has released an update for Gboard to improve user experience. The company added a Resize tab to Gboard, but with a twist: Google gave and took. See the article for details.
Google has released the latest Gboard update, identified as build number 13.4.08. The update is currently in beta but has been officially announced for Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro devices.
Exactly What’s Going On In Gboard’s v13.4.08
With the most recent update, which has the version number mentioned above, the company is introducing a new ‘Resize tab’ in the Gboard; however, on the flip side, they have removed the “Keyboard height” settings, which were sufficiently beneficial. The ability to customize the height of the keyboard was removed from Gboard in the most recent update that was released by Google.
Users who want to change the size of their keyboard must now navigate to either the toolbar or the shortcuts page. This gives them the ability to make adjustments by dragging the two pull tabs that are located at the top and bottom of the screen. Users also have the option of raising the key to a higher position, which gives them the freedom to leave a space between the system home bar and the spacebar.
Prior to this update, users had access to a “Keyboard height” button in the Gboard settings section of the preferences menu. When this button was tapped, a new dialogue box appeared, which contained the following options:
