Incognito mode on Marshmallow, Nougat devices

The mode was originally thought to be reserved for Android O, but a new beta of Gboard reveals otherwise.

The feature is visible immediately when you start editing a note, and can be accessed from a pair of arrow-shaped buttons that appear at the bottom of the app screen.

One of the more popular keyboard options available for Android, the beta version of Google's homegrown Gboard keyboard received an update that brings incognito mode, along with other features and visual redesigns. Previously limited to Android O, an Incognito mode to match Chrome's is now available on Marshmallow and above.

The Gboard 6.4 beta is akin to the incognito mode found in the Chrome browser and prevents the software from comprehending the inputs made by the user for Google's research purposes.

Version 6.4 happens to include another minor redesign of the Theme page in settings. Those who are subscribed to the beta program can get it updated via Google Play store and use it for the regular use till the final version comes out in the market. The search giant has overhauled its design elements.You will now notice a grid display for theme options allowing to set Custom, Colors, and Landscapes, unlike the carousel-like display which was in vogue before this.

Toolbar shortcuts in Gboard 6.3 (left) and 6.4 (right) with the added GIF option. Once you are enrolled, you'll be able to download the latest version, 6.4, and try out the features mentioned above. If your device is already running the beta program, you can check out the new features of the Gboard.
