    My pixel 6 and the keyboard are lagging. I have turned the phone on and off again. I have uninstalled and reinstalled gboard. I have done a soft and hard reset and it's still terribly slow to the point I can't type messages as it keeps zooming in on the keyboard. Has anyone else had this issue?

    Welcome to Android Central! Does this also happen in Safe Mode? https://support.google.com/pixelphon.../2852139?hl=en. Have you already tried clearing the app cache/data for Gboard in Settings>Apps‚Äč?

    Thanks so much for your reply! Have the security patch. May have solved the prob tho by turning off magnification under accessibility. Fingers crossed this takes care of it!

    I had the same problem, the fix seems to be simple.. This lagging only happens when the screen magnifier is in the small box mode. Open the magnifier and select the whole page setting in the bottom right of the screen.

    You should find that this fixes the lag, it did for me

    I had the same problem with Gboard and Swift. Completely turning off magnification in accessibility solved the problem.(just switching to full screen magnification did not help)

    However I really like to be able to magnify the screen. Any ideas how to do this without accessibility magnification?

    p.s.
    Turning off magnification made my pixel6 a lot snappier! Wow

    I wonder if this is a known bug?

    Hello,
    Try updating the phone and also clear the keyboard cache and data.
    Boot your device in safe mode and find the culprit behind it, then simply uninstall the third-party apps.
    Wipe cache partition.

    FYI, you can't wipe the cache partition on Pixels (or any other phones that utilize dual A/B partitions).

    Thanks for your other suggestions, though!
