There are more keyboard apps available on Android than you’d care to try, but we do recommend trying at least a few of the best keyboard apps to find something you like. When you do, here’s how to get it going on your Android phone.
First, a couple of notes. For our example, we’ll be showing you how to switch to the SwiftKey Keyboard, but the process of switching to any other keyboard is the same. Also, we’re using a OnePlus 6T device for this example. The method on your Android device should be similar, but with countless Android variations, it’s hard to say for sure.
The first thing you’ll need to is head to the Play Store and download the keyboard you want. If you want to follow along, you can go ahead and download the SwiftKey Keyboard we’re using here. Once you’ve installed the app, head over to your device’s settings.
Inside the settings, you’ll need to head to the “Language and Input” settings. For some phones, it might be buried inside another menu, just like ours is under “System.” If you can’t find it, you can always perform a search.
Once you see it, tap the “Languages and Input” option and then tap the “Virtual Keyboard” option. Some devices might list the setting as “Current Keyboard” instead.
