Introducing Gmail Tap

Google has launched “Gmail Tap”, a two-key keyboard bringing Morse code to the Android and iOs mobile platforms. The QWERTY keyboard was invented in 1874 and yet it is still used today, largely unchanged. Google’s new keyboard represents every letter of the alphabet using a simple pattern of dots and dashes, and once you know them you can type without even looking at your screen. This makes it ideal for situations where you need to discreetly send emails, such as when you’re on a date or in a meeting with your boss. See more at Google Vice President Communication Services David Brook, Gmail Tap lead engineer Reed Morse, the great grandson of Samuel Morse, are joined by Gmail Tap engineers Mitch Fedenko and Beth Dunning, Gmail Tap product lead Todd Smith as they provide the background to the new service.
