The incognito Gboard is available on Android O (8.0) Developer Preview 3 within a Chrome Dev incognito tab. It is worth mentioning here since the feature has appeared in the developer version of Android O, there are chances that it might or might not make it to the final Android O public release. Android O Developer Preview was rolled out right after it was announced last month and as the next iteration of Android OS is still in beta phase, many more interesting features can be spotted ahead. Android O is expected to roll out later this year, however, an exact timeline remains unknown.
