Gboard iOS keyboard update brings handy translate feature to iPhone and iPad

Gboard has received a new update today that has added the useful Google Translate functionality to the third-party keyboard for iPhone and iPad.

As spotted by AllThings.How, Google updated its iOS Gboard third-party keyboard with the translation feature. It allows users to translate text both to and from all of the 100+ supported languages.

Notably, Gboard also offers iOS users swipe-style texting, multiple theme options, and more. One note, you will have to grant Google full access to Gboard in settings to use the feature. The translate button can be found behind the “G” button on Gboard.
