Gboard can create emoji based on the user’s face: Smilies and stickers slowly go out of fashion. We need new, more personal ways of expressing ourselves. Fortunately, Google has responded to our needs, and the Gboard keyboard is able to turn the face of the user into a sticker using the Mini for the Gboard. The feature works on both iOS and Android.
Users of Gboard on iOS and Android will be able to turn their selfies into Mini stickers with the help of artificial intelligence and deep machine learning by Google. Using a combination of machine learning, neural networks and illustrations, users will have access to more than quadrillion combinations of hairstyles, face shapes, eye colors, etc.
Mini for Gboard is the evolution of the function of self-stickers originally launched for the Google Allo application in May 2017. The process of creating a Mini will be as simple as using the Allo – you just need to take a picture of yourself and the process will go on by itself, choosing the skin tone, face shape, hair, and more according to your unique appearance. Once the process is complete, users can customize the generated emoji or send it without modification.
Google also adds about a hundred new stickers on the already impressive collection of Allo stickers. Thus, now users, for example, can send a sticker not only with pizza but also many other food options.
Users can get a new feature by downloading the latest version of Gboard for iOS or Android.
