Is your Gesture Type not working or do you need to customize it – read on to know more.
I use Moto E and the below settings apply to any phone that use Android KitKat 4+ versions keyboard.
Gesture typing settings (some call it Swype typing, Swift text typing, though these are related technologies and separate apps in the Play store), in the Android KitKat4+ versions, are buried inside the Settings app.
Here’s how to change your Gesture Type settings on your Android Phone:
Go to Settings. Tap on Language & input.
Under Keyboard & Input Methods, tap on Default Google Keyboard (this shows the default language in your home location that was setup at the time of purchase of your Android phone).
In the Choose Input Method popup screen – tap on ‘Set up input methods‘.
This shows up your Google Keyboard with a slider icon next to it. Tap on the slider icon.
This brings up Google Keyboard Settings. Scroll down to see GESTURE TYPING. This is where you can modify settings related to Gesture typing.
The following options are available in this page:
- Enable Gesture Typing
- Dynamic floating preview
- Show gesture trail
- Phrase gesture – to input spaces during gestures by gliding to the space key.
