Gboard for Android gets support for over 20 more languages including Chinese and Korean

Good thing that app developers are always considering the fact that their apps have to reflect that reality and that they need to add more support so people all over the world will get the chance to enjoy using their product.

On Tuesday, Google announced the addition of Chinese - both traditional and simplified - and Korean, as well as 20 other languages, to Gboard for Android. Gboard users have apparently been clamoring for Chinese and Korean support, so there you go! That full language list is available here.

Google says its Gboard for Android language update is now rolling out worldwide.

Significantly, the latest update also extends support beyond widely spoken languages, with new hyperlocal dialects also being supported.

"Each new language helps more people express themselves with their keyboard, and we're thankful to the thousands of linguists and native speakers around the globe who help us bring new languages to Gboard".

In recent weeks, Google began testing version 7.0 of Gboard in beta where it added a redesigned interface for voice input, alongside unified emoji, GIF, and sticker search. It's enabled by default on some Android phones.
