The AI-based GIF suggestion is available globally in English only.

Today’s messaging era has swept away text and has introduced pictures more than ever before. Emoji, stickers, or GIFs often get our point across better than just words. But, with thousands of emoji and stickers, and an endless number of GIFs, it is sometimes difficult to find the perfect way to say “I love you,” “hooray,” or anything else you’re trying to communicate.

Starting today for all Android users, Gboard will use AI to suggest GIFs, emoji and stickers to you related to your conversation making it easier to share your feelings with the person you are communicating with.

Just tap the “GIF” icon in the top left corner of Gboard and you’ll see a selection of GIFs, emoji and stickers that Gboard thinks you might want to share.

For example, if you’re typing “Awesome!” Gboard will suggest this sticker:

Or if you type “I’m sleepy”, you’ll get this emoji:

“To make sure these suggestions are private to you and take place as fast as possible, this feature is processed entirely on your device,” Google said in a blog post.

The AI-based GIF suggestion is available globally in English only.

“Over time, we’ll expand Gboard suggestions to more languages, and more types of content to help you do and say more right from your conversation,” added Google.
