Google has now added over a hundred new virtual keyboards, transliteration tools, and input method editors (IMEs) to its email service, Gmail, according to a post on the Google Blog. With the new additions you can type in the language and keyboard layout of your choice. The languages can be changed with a single click. This update takes the count of input languages supported by Google to 75.
To enable the feature, check the box located next to 'Enable input tools' under Language in Settings. Once you have enabled it, you’ll see the 'input tools' icon next to the Settings button in the toolbar, and you can turn on or off any input tool from there.

Recently, Google had released a new major update to its Google Drive app for Android devices. As a part of the update, Android users received some file management tools as well as the ability to arrange folders according to the type of files they hold. Users of Google Drive for Android can now automatically sync pinned content while using 3G. Other features include a richer experience while viewing Google Presentations, basic table support; the option to create, reply to, and resolve comments; the option to view, and change fonts in Documents Editor; pinch-to-zoom in the Documents Editor; the option to print files using Google Cloud Print; the option to resume interrupted uploads, and updates to gesture detection.
Earlier this year, Google has just officially pulled the wraps off Google Drive, its own take on cloud storage solution. Google Drive is available to anyone with a Google account; you get 5GB of storage free of cost at start-up. Google Docs has also been integrated into Google Drive allowing users to share, edit, and access all their Office documents and PDFs in real time.
Last month, Google issued an update for iOS devices. According to a post on its official blog, the search giant stated, “If you’re using the Drive app on your iOS device you can also edit Google documents, just as you can with the Android app. From your iPhone or iPad, you can create a new document, edit an existing one or format text. And, just like on your computer, you’ll be able to see other people’s edits instantly as they’re made. You’ll also notice other new improvements to the iOS Drive app. For example, you can now view Google presentations on your iPhone or iPad, including speaker notes, full-screen mode and the ability to swipe between slides. You can also create new folders, move files into folders and upload stuff (like photos and videos) from your device directly in the Drive app.”
