Google has released an update to its Android keyboard app that now pulls in suggestions from other apps and services that the user is logged into.
The aim is so that the word completion suggestions and spelling corrections can be more accurately personalised to what the user is most likely to type, based on their use of other services.
The data is stored locally within the smartphone, so it is possible to delete it later -- or disable to function entirely.
Disabling might be necessary if you are using a work phone that is connected to a personal email account, as then the suggestions would not be ideal.
The app can be downloaded from Google Play, and also adds a few more bug fixes and an option to change the colour of the onscreen keyboard.
