Google has released the Gboard iOS keyboard app for iPhones and iPads in the UK.
Gboard was launched for the US App Store last month and enables Google Search on the iPhone keyboard. It also provides access to emojis and a GIF library.
"Say you’re in a messaging app, chatting about dinner plans with a friend. You leave your messaging app, switch to another app to search for a restaurant, then copy-paste the information back into your conversation," Google explained.
"Gboard makes your life easier. Search for things like restaurants, a flight number, images, videos and more. Basically, anything you can search on Google, you can search here."
Once you've searched for something, such as a restaurant, you're able to paste the information - address, reviews and URL, for example - directly into your text conversation.
Lastly, Google's Gboard keyboard comes with a feature called 'Glide Typing' that lets you type by dragging a finger from letter to letter in a similar way to Swype and SwiftKey.
Google's Gboard keyboard is available to download now from the App Store, and is compatible with iPhones and iPads running iOS 9.
The launch is just the latest in the ongoing push by Apple's rivals such as Google and Microsoft to provide key offerings on the iOS platform.
