Two years after its launch, Google’s beloved keyboard, the Gboard now supports 500 languages. Announcing the feat, Google’s Gboard manager Daan van Esch wrote, “Today, Gboard offers more than 500 language varieties on Android, bringing a smart, AI-driven typing experience to many more people around the world.

This means that more than 90% of the world can now type in their first language with Gboard, with keyboard layouts tailored to each language and typing smarts like auto correct and predictive text.”

New languages have been added over the past few months according to Daan. “One hundred new languages have been added to Gboard, such as Nigerian Pidgin (~30 million speakers), Rangpuri (~15 million speakers), Balinese (~3 million speakers), Pontic Greek (~800,000 speakers) and many more”.

Gboard currently supports more than 40 writing systems across the world, ranging from alphabets used across many languages, like Roman and Cyrillic, to scripts that are used for only one language, like Ol Chiki (used for Santali).

Aside from designing a new layout every time a new language is added, a new machine learning model is also created to train Gboard to know how to type and correct mistakes in that language.
