It was the best until the most recent update got rid of my font. Now I'm stuck with this plain font that looks awful with the rest of my phone. I switched back to Samsung keyboard, but I write a lot and rely on the way Gboard functions. Please please fix it!!!!!! It's been several months now and I'm still hoping that you guys return the font change.

I have switched from Microsoft Swiftkey and it's been a pleasant change. All of the Google powers are in there, but unfortunately, it's less customizable than Swiftkey and that's a bummer since Android is supposed to be the OS for customizations. For example, I wish there was a way to choose which characters would pop up when you hold down on the period key, other than that , though, it's been pretty great.

The voice recognition algorithm seems to change every few weeks and starts misunderstanding and misspelling half of what I say which is very annoying to have to go back and correct everything manually lol. Apparently sounds like well and I have to go back too many times to correct this. It would be nice if it could be trained to recognize my voice in particular with a separate app, but I imagine that would play hell with the whole works. So suffice it to say it is much easier than typing it out
