Firstly, you will notice a small change made in the shortcut menu. Until now, shortcuts were positioned in a single row. After the update, you will see that the icons will be arranged in two rows, making the most of the available window space. This will make it easier to identify the defined shortcut, and help you take advantage of the space if new features are added.
As with your browsers, the Google Gboard keyboard also has a search history that is being recorded as it is used. Therefore, this new feature will also prove to be very important for users. From now on, with a simple long press from the suggestion you wish to delete, you will have the option to delete that search suggestion.
