How to change the keyboard on an Android smartphone or tablet?

Not all users are satisfied with the standard keyboard installed in the tablet or smartphone. It doesn’t matter, you can always change it, since the choice of keyboards in the Google Play Market is for every taste. In this article, we will tell you how to replace a standard keyboard with another.

We will not show how to download the keyboard from the Google Play Market, you probably know very well how to do it. And if you don’t know, here’s a detailed instruction for you.

So, you have decided on the keyboard and downloaded it from the Play Market. It was automatically installed, it remains to activate it. There are many ways to do this. First, a 100% working method.

Go to the “Settings”.

Here we find the section “Language and input”. Sometimes it is called “Language”, the essence does not change.

We are looking for the section “Keyboards and input method” on the screen, as in our case, or something like “Current keyboard”. Click “Default”.

We see a list of available keyboards. In our case, the Samsung keyboard is used by default, we change it to a Google keyboard, respectively, put a tick next to this item.

We launch any application that requires data entry and see that we use the Google keyboard we have chosen.

The second method, which, alas, does not work on all keyboards. Press and hold the settings icon until a menu appears.

Using this menu you can change the keyboard.

Once again, not all keyboards support the second method of changing the input method, so we recommend that you use the first method – for sure.

An example is shown on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone with TouchWiz firmware. In your case, another firmware may be used, but this does not change the essence of the process..
