Tablet users can now quickly type numbers in the same way as the phone
One of the biggest reasons Google has taken apps like its keyboard and moved them into the Play Store is for updates independent of the OS, and we're getting one of those today to add a feature for tablet users. The main user-facing change in this update is the addition of a long-press action for numbers in the top row of the keyboard on tablets, something that was available on the phones but oddly missing on larger-screen devices.
Additionally, the update is improving keyboard layouts for some languages, fixes various bugs and makes stability improvements across both phones and tablets. You can grab a download of the latest version of Google Keyboard from the Play Store link above, no matter what device you're on.
