1. Emoji Kitchen on Gboard
With Emoji Kitchen, you can mix up your favorite emojis and create customized stickers. When you tap on the two emojis, Google will suggest the combinations of them, and you can make a sticker. If you are not satisfied with the given suggestions, you can double-tap on any emoji and see more suggestions. At present, Emoji Kitchen is on Gboard beta, but soon it will be out for Android 6.0 and above.
2. Auto-Generated Narrators for Books
For all of them who love reading, books can now listen to audio versions of the book. As Google is adding auto-generated narrators for all the books which do not have audio versions. You can use it for Google Play Books, where you will not get an audio version, but you can use this new feature and listen to it. However, Google is still working with publishers in the UK and US and are planning to release it next year.
3. Google’s Voice Access feature
Voice Access feature will be helpful for people with disabilities. You can add labels to the apps and use your voice to open it.

Now, it is available on Android 6.0 and above.
4. Go Tab on Google Maps
