Google has introduced Gboard’s enhanced voice typing again. It’s a google assistant powered feature which enables users to type and send the messages by voice. By using this feature, you can type, send messages, and also clear out texts without even touching the screen of your mobile. This feature was launched back in August this year, but was pulled back by Google due to some reasons.
To the Gboard users, Google sent a pop-up message stating that they can tap on the mic to chat hands-free. This was then followed by another pop-up stating: save time typing. Individuals can send messages merely by saying ‘send’ with this feature. Users can also clear messages with just a command ‘clean’.
The new feature allows users to tap the microphone button in Gboard and then speak more freely
This will also let people add punctuations automatically while dictating. Without this functionality, users had to say ‘comma’ or ‘period’ to add comma to the text or to stop it respectively. This, in turn, made it harder to work with voice typing. To enable this feature, users have to tap on Gboard’s setting button, then enable ‘voice typing’ and then “Enhanced voice typing toggle.”
However, this feature is available for Pixel phones that feature the ‘new Google assistant’ and have the latest Gboard beta (version 10.0+) installed.
