The Google Keyboard was updated today with the same changelog as the last version, but one thing that’s definitely new about the input method is personalization of suggestions from your Google account. After updating the Google Keyboard, the bar above your keyboard that usually shows predictions will now remind you that the predictions will be improved by data Google has related to your activity in other Google apps.

Predictions are already improved by your own dictionary of words and your contact list, but this takes things to a whole new level by looking at the way you type across other apps as well. This isn’t anything new — it’s one of the big features of SwiftKey — but it should improve the typing experience for anyone that wants to go with Google’s keyboard option.
