    I have started having a problem with the keyboard freezing up. I notice especially when I am typing on Facebook. I love this keyboard and hate to switch. Any suggestions?

    My issue with Gboard is the personal dictionary shortcuts work for a day or two, and then never come back...unless there's an update. Which there recently was...so the feature is working...for now.

    let me clarify, I am using GBoard. O didn't include that. I looked for an update but don't see one.

    I have the issue. Happens in Facebook and Instagram. It freezes up when commenting or posing hashtags.

    Have you tried:

    Settings > Apps > See all apps > Gboard > Storage > Clear Cache

    Must be something about Facebook because the same thing happens to me but ONLY on Facebook. I just back out of the keyboard then select the text field again to bring the keyboard back up. Never happens in Chrome or when I'm texting or emailing.

    I use SwiftKey and have no problems.
    SwiftKey has over 100 million downloads.

    I prefer SwiftKey for everything except for when I am driving. I don't like when I use the voice to text Google translation in messaging with Swiftkey while I'm driving. While the microphone is still on the screen but paused my music will not play. So unless my keyboard is displayed on the screen my music will not play. I have to hit the back button to make the keyboard show instead of the microphone.When I use the gboard keyboard my music plays when the microphone is not recording my conversation. Gboard is very cumbersome when typing short words like was, to and in. Like it doesn't register short wipes.. I also like the fact that SwiftKey will populate your email fields. Gboard does not do this. I really really want to like gboard but there are a few functions that I dislike very much.
