Google's Gboard Now Supports Incognito Mode from Within Chrome

Google's Gboard Now Supports Incognito Mode from Within Chrome

The mode was originally thought to be reserved for Android O, but a new beta of Gboard reveals otherwise. The biggest change is an incognito mode that appears when typing in Chrome's incognito mode, but there is more to discuss so let's jump right in.

As the name suggests, Gboard's Incognito Mode makes the keyboard incognito, stopping it from saving words that are typed in and ensuring they don't show up in the keyboard's history.

The update carries the designation Gboard 6.4 beta, that will enable users that are running on Android Marshmallow and Nougat-quipped devices to use Gboard's incognito mode on their smartphones. Just like the incognito mode found in the Chrome browser, this feature will prevent the software from recording the input or keystrokes for purposes like machine learning.


Google has been tinkering with more functions in the Gboard toolbar and this version has one new shortcut that you can add and organize: a GIF button. Interestingly, Gboard's incognito mode seems to only work in Chrome, with no indication as to whether the feature will be usable in other apps.

Version 6.4 happens to include another minor redesign of the Theme page in settings.

Moreover, Google has added a GIF option right below the keyboard's search field. The "Show more" option has been taken off from the top of the theme options and has been placed in the bottom instead. Assuming you are part of this beta program and you have downloaded the beta, you can test the new keyboard feature yourself by opening an incognito tab in Chrome on your Android handset.
