Very easy to use, and has a lot of content to choose from regarding any app, bitmoji, emoji, etc. and I loveee that the emojis move now! Also, my talk to text is so, so accurate that I actually use it all the time, which I've never done before. Usually it's so inaccurate because they pick up all sounds around you it can't make sense of the word. I can use the talk to text in a crowded room and it'll still only pick up my voice. It's amazing 😍

Gboard's speech-to-text is mediocre, but it is far better than Samsung Voice, but still garbage. The live transcribe feature comes installed on most, if not all, Android devices and works wonderfully with top-notch accuracy. It picks up everything regardless of accents or rapid speech. Why not apply that technology to the Voice to Text tool on Gboard to create a better user experience for your customers? I know, crazy right?

The best keyboard available - WHEN IT WORKS. I can't believe that I've had the same issue with 3 phones for over 5 years, now. It freezes randomly - you can type, but it won't update anything on the screen and it lags for 3-5 minutes. The only "quick" fix is to restart the phone, whereas the alternative is giving up on whatever you're doing and setting it down for 3-5 minutes. To make matters worse - if you RECEIVE a message while it's frozen, that 3-5 minute clock resets. 5+ years, wow.
