Google Japanese Input (Google 日本語入力, Gūguru Nihongo Nyūryoku) is an input method published by Google for the entry of Japanese text on a computer. Since its dictionaries are generated automatically from the Internet, it supports typing of personal names, Internet slang, neologisms and related terms. Google Japanese Input can be used on Windows, macOS, and ChromeOS.

Google also releases an open-source version under the name mozc. It can be used on Linux, Windows, macOS, Android, and ChromeOS. It does not use Google's closed-source algorithms for generating dictionary data from online sources.[4]
