I just downloaded GBoard, the new Google iOS app that replaces the standard iOS keyboard with a keyboard that allows you to search Google from the board itself – and the results show up as cards at the bottom of the browser. Check it out:
Gboard appears when you start to search in an iOS browser:
Results show as a single card at the bottom. Scroll to the right for more results.
If this thing catches on, you’d best be ranking #1. On the other hand, no room for ads…yet.
After playing around with it a bit, I noticed the results are heavily biased towards Knowledge Graph cards. Check these KRoCs (Keyboard Results Cards) out:
Gboard search result for “Yelp”
Tapping the card populates a URL in the browser
Which takes you to a mobile SERP for “Yelp Corporation”
Yeah, that’s what I wanted. Thanks Google.
