Google Gboard Uses AI To Pick Relevant GIF
To get started, tap on the GIF icon in the top-left corner of Gboard — that’s where you’ll see the AI-informed sticker and GIF suggestions. Google said all processing is performed offline and on-device, and that any and all collected data remains “private to you.”
GIF recommendations aren’t the only AI-infused component of Google’s software keyboard.
