    Nexus 6P. Since the last set of updates, the spacebar and Caps key have disappeared from my SMS input. Space bar is still on the numbers/symbols input, but gone from the letters input. How do I get them back, or reverse the latest update?

    Sounds like you may want to look into a new keyboard. I feel obligated to mention SwiftKey, a keyboard available on the Google Play store, as it's pretty well known and I've been using it for years.

    There was a recent update to the Google keyboard, so that may have caused the issue you're experiencing. A restart of your phone may fix it, but if not, try setting the default input to something else (another keyboard) and switch back to the Google one if you'd rather not use a 3rd party keyboard. That may fix any odd behavior.

    So if you tap the area where the spacebar is supposed to be, nothing happens?

    Are you sure it's not something to do with your screen settings, that's not​ showing the contrast of that area​? Seems to work fine on my device.

    I was wondering about that as well, but the various themes I see in Gboard shouldn't allow for the spacebar to be the same color as the background.

    My space-bar goes away when i go to emoji mode (which i do find to be annoying but tolerable) but is completely functional and normal in standard letter mode

    I've noticed the same with my phone. However when I go to set my theme for the keyboard, if I add borders on my keys it adds a spacebar and caps/shift key. Even though the keyboard doesn't look as nice, it's functional.
