Latest Google Keyboard V5.1 With Android 7.0 Themes And New Emoji

Google gave us a little sneak preview of Google Keyboard v5.1 in the Android N dev preview back in May.
You could sideload that APK on other versions of Android to get the new
themes, but now the final build appears to be hitting the Play Store.
As with all Google releases, this one is staged. We’ve got the new
version available for sideloading, though.

The big change in this version of the Google Keyboard is the vastly
improved theme selector. There are more than a dozen themes in different
colors, plus you can add your own image to use as the background. The
updated theme menu is where you’ll find the key border toggle, which was
added a while back. The new version also includes Unicode 9 emoji with
selectable skin tone, but that doesn’t work on Marshmallow. It will work
on Android N
Features

The new fetures of Google Keyboard v5.1 for Android N are as follows.

  • Themes: Customize keyboard with favorite photos or colors
  • Gesture typing & suggestions in: Albanian, Arabic, Basque,
    Bosnian, English (Australia), English (India), Esperanto, Irish,
    Javanese, Mongolian, Montenegrin (Cyrillic, Latin), Nepali, Portuguese
    (Africa), Sundanese, Tajik, Tatar, Zulu
  • Layout support: Burmese, Southern Sotho, Turkmen, Urdu, Welsh, Xhosa
  • Add recent emoji to suggestion strip
  • Bug fixes, including passwords with Talkback and missing key labels
  • Support Android N
  • Technically,
    the keyboard now supports the Unicode 9 emoji standard although you
    need OS level support to type those and that’s only available on latest
    Android Nougat OS at the moment.

    5. Gesture typing & suggestions in: Albanian, Arabic, Basque,
    Bosnian, English (Australia), English (India), Esperanto, Irish,
    Javanese, Mongolian, Montenegrin (Cyrillic, Latin), Nepali, Portuguese
