Gboard already supports hundreds of languages and dialects, but that's not stopping the team behind it from adopting more. Since announcing that the app had more 500 inputs back in December, developers have added at least 100 more. And now, we know of another 63 that have just been codified into Google's official rolls, bringing the total to 748.

The new inputs are part of the latest changelog, which also includes a mention of the in-app clipboard manager which we've seen in months of limited testing. Perhaps this means that the nifty tool is finally here to stay, but it has been prone to disappearing time and again — we'll cross our fingers and hope for the best.

Limbu was added in January but now shows up as a duplicate, albeit now marked as having no dictionary. Why this situation exists, we can't say.
