Google Keyboard rolls out colorful themes on Android

New, 25 comments

Google's Android keyboard now has many more themes to pick from, and they're not as drab as the "material dark" and "material light" options that existed before. With the new version that just hit the Play Store, you've also got a slew of options in shades of red, blue, green, pink, and yeah.. some more black / gray options too.

Themes are already available to people running the Android N preview, but now you won't have to run beta software to get 'em. And if none of the colors suit you, you can also choose an image from your camera roll to go behind the keys.  The latest, theme-filled update for Google Keyboard — version 5.1 — is available from the Play Store now. And hey, this is one thing Google's iOS keyboard doesn't (yet) do.
