How to change the color or put any image on the Google keyboard

Google Keyboard 5.1 is now available for all users on Google Play . As we told you at the time, it is an important update, as it introduces an interesting change at the visual level: the themes .

Until now, on the Google keyboard we could choose the colors, one white and one dark. But with this update, we now have themes of different colors at our disposal , and we even have the possibility to put an image as a keyboard background, something that we have already taught you to do .

How to change the theme on the Google keyboard

To change the keyboard theme, we have to go to the keyboard settings. To do this, we first access the settings of our Android device, and look for the “Language and keyboard” option . Once inside we press on the Google keyboard option, and there we will see the topics section.

When pressing, we will see the different colors that we have available for the keyboard . We choose the one we want, and when we open the keyboard again, it will appear with the new theme. Here we can also choose whether or not we want the keys to have an edge.

To put an image , press the option dedicated to it, and the terminal gallery will open. We choose the image we want, and we will see a screen to adjust by pinching the image size to the keyboard. In the next and last step, we can adjust the brightness . To more brightness, we will see less the keys and more the image, and less brightness, the opposite.

In addition to the themes, this new Google keyboard update introduces support for more languages, such as Welsh, Burmese or Turkmen. Now, we will also see the recent emojis in the suggestion strip , and support for Android 7.0 Nougat is added.

Finally, some known errors have been corrected , such as certain problems with TalkBack. We remind you that soon more than 70 new emojis will arrive on keyboards , in addition to a hundred more in support of gender equality .
