Like many Google apps, Gboard started as a barebones stock Android app. Just as Google Phone used to simply be the stock dialer app from Android brought to the Play Store, Gboard was the stock Android keyboard. Back then, it was known as the Google Keyboard. The Google Keyboard has come a long way since then, and the change in its name signified a change in the direction the app was going. It was no more replication of the stock Android keyboard.
