Gboard adds support for 40 more languages and sticker packs

Google’s keyboard app Gboard gets one useful update for those who wanted access to more languages on it. For one it adds support for 40 more languages, including those that don’t have a writing system based on Latin script. In the changelog, Japanese had been specifically singled out, meaning there must be a big demand for it. But the app won’t for users of Google’s Japanese keyboard to switch. Instead, it’s just one of the many options that need to be manually added and configured to use.

As for the other new feature, it’s actually been around for users of Allo. But now the four sticker packs are readily available for all Gboard users, regardless if you have Allo or not. The update is rolling out now so you may see it soon on your device.

Laura Dern is one of the new characters we’re going to be introduced to in The Last Jedi. Not much was known about her except for her purple hair and that she goes by Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo.

She’s part of a cover feature opposite Resistance fighter Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and comes with the headline “Can Poe get along with his new boss?” The story delves a bit deeper into how Holdo is part of the Resistance instead of being part of the First Order, which was what early rumours suggested. But it looks like she isn’t getting along with some members of the Resistance.

Apple Maps lane guidance feature comes to Canada

If you use Apple Maps to navigate, you’re getting one more useful feature to use. The app now supports lane guidance here in Canada as well as in Australia, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom. Now, if you use your iPhone or CarPlay to navigate, you’ll see a set of directional arrows that at the top of the screen showing which lane you should take to complete a turn or get off a freeway. However, speed limits are still only being shown in the US and UK. The feature first came to the US and China starting with iOS 11.

Waze and the City of Toronto sharing traffic data to help motorists navigate better

Toronto Mayor Tory announced the City of Toronto will become the next partner in Waze’s Connected Citizen’s Program. This is to help alleviate the growing traffic situation in the GTA.  Last month, .Waze’s third-annual Driver Satisfaction Index found that Toronto drivers are the second-least satisfied of all Canadian cities surveyed

The partnership will create a two-way data flow between Waze and the City of Toronto, benefiting drivers all over the GTA. Waze will have access to the city’s real-time data, better helping drivers to avoid road closures, construction and traffic jams while Toronto will receive anonymous driving data from Waze’s more than 560,000 drivers in the GTA, giving the city additional visibility into traffic patterns for decision making.
