‘Unfortunately Android keyboard has stopped’ – How To Fix


I have rarely seen ‘Unfortunately Android keyboard has stopped’ messages on Android but when I do see them, it seems to take a lot of work to get rid of them. The keyboard is fundamental to how we use our devices so it isn’t possible to live without it or easy to work around it. So how do you fix it? This tutorial shows you how!

The Android keyboard is a separate app from the core OS. This is a good thing in my opinion as it can be controlled and developed separately. You can also replace the default keyboard with third party ones like Swiftkey. As it is a separate app, it also has a separate process which is also a good thing. It means you can restart it and even replace it without affecting the rest of your phone.
