Gboard is about to get an innovative AI-powered feature

Despite its “AI-first” slogan, Google has failed to lead an AI revolution. It may sound harsh, but the fact is that Google missed the opportunity to become what OpenAI is today. I don’t compare the two companies because the company owned by Alphabet is bigger and has more resources. However, it was the “little” OpenAI that started a revolution with its ChatGPT. With the rise of the company’s chatbot, Microsoft has invested billions of dollars in the company in a win-win partnership. Now Bing, powered by ChatGPT, is poised to take the lead among search platforms unless Google acts quickly. The company is racing against time to push its AI products, and it looks like AI is finally becoming the real focus of Google’s ecosystem. According to a new report, Google Gboard will be one of the company’s products to get AI features.

Google Gboard will soon receive an AI-powered Imagen text-to-image generator

According to a new report, Google is planning to bring the very useful Imagen text-to-image integration to Gboard. In a recent APK teardown by the folks at 9to5Google, the latest Gboard beta contains lines of code that mention an “Imagen Keyboard”. Depending on the outlet, this “Imagen” feature will appear somewhere in the shortcut bar or page. It’s in the same place as the clipboard and one-handed mode. Oddly enough, Google recently introduced some design changes to Gboard. These changes clearly indicated the arrival of more features.

Although this is a work in progress, it’s good to see that Gboard will soon become more powerful. Of course, there is no timetable for the arrival of such a feature. We expect to hear more details on this at Google I/O in May.

Imagen is similar to the DALL-E 2 text-to-image generator. Surprisingly or not, it belongs to OpenAI. DALL-E can create images according to the request you submit to it. If we compare the two platforms, many users tend to prefer Imagen’s results. Considering this, adding it to Google Gboard may be the right decision for Google. We look forward to more news on this.
