Google today updated its Google Keyboard app for Android, adding a new Personalized Suggestions feature under the hood that lets it grab data from other Google apps and services. You can download the new version now directly from Google Play.


While the changelog merely talks about an option to switch the keyboard color scheme (white and blue) as well as the usual “bug fixes and stability improvements,” DroidLife points to the above message once you install the update. Essentially, Personalized Suggestions uses data from other Google apps and services to improve the keyboard’s suggestions and corrections. The data is stored locally, and you can delete it, or disable the feature completely.
