For many people, the default keyboard that comes on their devices is passable. It is usually either the stock Android keyboard or one created by an OEM like Samsung or LG. However, those are not your only options. There are a variety of third party keyboard apps for Android that have all sorts of features. If you want to get your text on for real, then let’s check out the best Android keyboards right now.
SwiftKey is definitely among the best Android keyboards ever. It has ridiculously good prediction and auto-correction along with gesture typing, cloud syncing so all of your devices can stay up to date, themes, keyboard customization, a number row, and more. It also has above average language support with over 100 languages supported. The keyboard and all of its features are free but you’ll have to pay for most of the themes. The keyboard was recently purchased by Microsoft which turned many people away from SwiftKey but for now, it works as it always has.
Of course, we give the obligatory nod to the stock Android keyboard. It is the baseline from which all keyboards are judged. It’s a minimal style keyboard and it doesn’t have a lot of options, but makes up for that by being speedy and reliable. It has gesture typing and a few customization options when it comes to your predictions, corrections, and user dictionary. There are a few theme options available as well as gesture (swipe) typing and one-handed mode. You can also sync your dictionary between devices for quick setup if you’re buying a new device. It’s entirely free with no in-app purchases.
GO Keyboard carries the same stigma as other GO products where some people love it and others think that it’s way too bloated. In any case, GO Keyboard is a solid Android keyboard and has been for a very long time. It comes with a ton of features, including themes, emoticons, emoji, support for various layouts including QWERTY, QWERTZ, AZERTY, and more. It also has gesture typing and fonts that you can choose from. It’s not the most minimal option, but if you don’t mind the bloat, it’s a good keyboard.
ai.type Free Emoji Keyboard
AI Type Keyboard Pro has been around for a long time and it’s a solid keyboard option. It comes with a lot of the standard features, including prediction, auto-complete, emoji, and keyboard customization. It also comes with over a thousand themes to add to your customization. It is also one of the few keyboards that comes with a number row.

Multiling O Keyboard
Multiling O Keyboard is the one stop shop if you need multiple languages. In fact, this keyboard app supports over 200 languages at the time of this writing which is more than pretty much every other Android keyboard. On top of superior language support, you’ll get gesture typing, the ability to set up a PC-style keyboard layout, keyboard resizing and repositioning, themes, emoji, various layouts, and the all-important number row. It’s an underrated app, especially if you speak multiple languages and it’s entirely free to use.
