Gboard keyboard

Gboard is the keyboard that many users in Spain use on their Android phones. The Google keyboard is one of the most versatile that we find on the market, with a large number of functions that we can take advantage of. This keyboard also has support for voice dictation, so that we can write using our voice.

Something that surely many Gboard users have noticed that the keyboard usually block or censor words that are considered offensive, like insults. There are times when this is not a bother, but for some users it is a feature that only causes worse keyboard use.
