The invention of the Gboard helped people across the globe to communicate in various ways. Today Google took a step forward in its endeavor to make communication easier and more effective by announcing that it has added more languages to the Gboard. It now supports over 300 languages, thus covering 74 percent of the world’s population. The full list of languages is available on the official Google Website for perusal.

This update included some of the world’s most widely-spoken languages. They are bought in both traditional Chinese and mandarin along with Korean to the Android Gboard update. However, Google aims to make sure that lesser-known languages, like Manx and Maori, also get representation on the Google keyboard.

Like, Fulani, a language spoken in Africa for hundreds of years, didn’t have its own written alphabet until brothers Abdoulaye and Ibrahima Barry invented them almost three decades ago in Guinea. For this new initiative, Google worked alongside Abdoulaye and Ibrahima to design and test an Adlam layout, which is now available on the Gboard. Google believes that adding new languages helps more people articulate and familiarise themselves with their keyboard and thus they will aim to add in more languages from across the world.
