I know it is possible to create custom keyboard shortcuts with the default keyboard (General > Keyboard > Text Replacement). Can the same thing be done on GBoard for iOS?

For example, per this tip, I would like to set @@ to autocorrect to my email address.

You can create keyboard shortcuts with GBoard, it just uses the default apple keyboard shortcuts. If you go to Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> Text Replacement, you can create shortcuts by tapping the + symbol and entering the phrases and shortcuts.

  • For some reason that wasn't working for me before. Now it is!

  • It doesn't work for me. Gboard just ignores default apple keyboard shortcuts

  • That is also happening to me. What's odd is that it has worked before.
