Is there a way to trigger Gboard's voice-typing without having to switch keyboards? Whether remapping app calls to Google's default voice-typing (such as SwiftKey's microphone button) to instead use Gboard's, OR by utilizing some sort of shortcut that can directly trigger Gboard's voice-typing, like via an activity or intent (without switching keyboards)?

I'm blown away how well Gboard's voice-typing/transcribing works compared to Google's default voice typing. Not only is Gboard's lightning fast, but it's also highly accurate, AND it continues transcribing even if you hesitate for more than 7.3ms, which is highly welcomed. That being said, Gboard's manual keyboard leaves much to be desired when compared to SwiftKey's, particularly in its word prediction/autocorrection and swipe gestures.
