Android has been the operating system of choice for millions of users around the world for varying reasons. Among these reasons, one of them is also the customization aspect which only Android offers out of the box. Now, one of the most basic customization options on Android is to change the launcher.
If we go further into customization then we can also change the default keyboard present on our Android smartphone. This comes in handy when we don’t like the default launcher that comes with our phone or there are some features missing from the default one.
Apart from that, we can also change our keyboard from the default one if there are features being offered from external ones that are better than the default ones. Therefore, we are now going to tell you how to change the default keyboard to a different one on your Android smartphone.
- Download the desired keyboard app from the Google Play Store.
- Now, go to the Settings option on your Android.

Now, we need to select a keyboard first of all from the Google Play Store and one of the best Keyboard app currently available for Android is Gboard which is developed by Google. Therefore, download Gboard from the Google Play Store first of all and install it on your smartphone.
After that, you need to head over to the Settings of your Android smartphone and go to language & input option. Here, select keyboard & input methods and tap on the current keyboard. Now, you will get a list of all the Keyboards that you have installed apart from the installed one.
