Google Keyboard for Android

Google has been progressively making its stock Android apps available in its Play Store, and on Wednesday it made its stock Android virtual keyboard available for download. The Google Keyboard offers all of the same features that were introduced on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean's default keyboard, including gesture typing, voice dictation, autocompletion, and support for both phones and tablets. The stock Android keyboard offers a pretty great typing experience, so if you are unhappy with the default options provided on non-Nexus devices such as Samsung and HTC phones, you now have another solid alternative. The Google Keyboard requires Android 4.0 or higher and is available for free in the Google Play Store now.
