GCR integration with Circle CI

i wanted to get an understanding. I am looking to switch over to gcr from dockerhub. After reviewing the documentation it seems that there is no direct integration of gcloud gcr into circleci. that it requires the gcloud sdk installed in the base image to interact with circleci. Is my understanding correct? Any plans for a direct integration of gcloud?

Hello! Have you taken a look at our GCloud orb? https://circleci.com/orbs/registry/orb/circleci/gcp-cli
