Google increases its commitment to tablets by adapting its Gboard keyboard

What we say has to do with adapting your operating system and applications to use on the large screens of these computers. And now it’s the turn of Gboard, its keyboard for Android.

The North American firm already has a version of its operating system for mobile devices adapted to tablets, called Android 12L, which is adapted to screens that exceed eight inches so that the experience is optimal. And, little by little, it is doing the same with the applications that it offers officially, such as Gmail or Maps.

The tablets well a sweet moment

The times when there were doubts about the viability of tablets, since their usefulness was not very great, are over. Thanks to the increased power they offer and the use of accessories, these devices have become a common choice for personal and professional use. And for this reason, your sales have increased significantly. And this is the reason that has led Google to increase its commitment to them (even putting the development of its own Chromebooks to sleep) and, also, for other manufacturers such as Samsung to adapt their applications and developments to large screens.
