Google has updated its Gboard for iOS keyboard with two new features: YouTube and Maps integration. The former allows users to directly share videos from the platform in apps by searching for clips across the web, while the latter allows users to share different locations or your own, for instance, with friends and family.

Also in this update is a new doodle mode that lets you send sketches made directly on the keyboard to your friends. Think of it as Digital Touch from the Apple Watch.


The app also now supports Arabic, Hebrew and Farsi languages.

The update is rolling out to iOS users now. Android users will have to wait in line for an undisclosed amount of time before they get these features.
