Google has released its stock keyboard available to download via Google Play to all devices running Android 4.0 or above in certain English-speaking markets.


The keyboard, which was previously only found on Google's Nexus devices, comes with libraries for 26 languages, supports the ability to select next word suggestions and enables users to form words by "swiping" across the keyboard, a feature also known as gesture typing. The keyboard also supports voice recognition or voice typing for composing simple messages.

The keyboard will initially be available to download to all devices running Android 4.0 and above in, what Google described as, "English speaking locales," though the company has stated that it will be making it available in more countries soon.
