    This is very frustrating because I really like the new Samsung keyboard but the Samsung voice is definitely not as good at detecting talking to text as google is in terms of accuracy but the G board is a lot smaller and not as easy for me I wish we could use Samsung keyboard with Google Voice but I can't seem to do that in settings

    You're in luck, you can indeed use Google Voice in the Samsung keyboard.

    Go to settings>general management>language and input>on-screen keyboard>manage keyboards. Then toggle off Samsung voice input. Viola, you now have google voice to text in the Samsung keyboard.

    Swift Key is a good one. I've used it before. I prefer Gboard but that's a good one too.

    Thanks for that post. I never liked Samsung voice much either. I switched to Google (following your path ) and found it does a much better job.

    Cool thanks! You think this method affects Bixby?

    I also prefer Gboard as I like to annoy family members with the obnoxious GIF's of which it proudly supports. otherwise I'd likely use the Samsung keyboard.

    It's little things for me, such as the color of the Samsung Message app icon and the reply bar for quick reply. I hate the color so I use the Google/Android MMS app. lol

    I doubt it but I disabled all of Bixby and the button so I couldn't say for sure.

    What messaging app are you using that allows you to use GBoard GIFs? I prefer the stock messaging app and GBoard GIF's are not supported. I use Swiftkey and they now have a GIF feature that is compatible with any messaging app. For now, it only shows categories (you can't search like on facebook) but it works pretty well for now.

    I'm using stock right now and it's not working. I figured I'd try it again to make sure before I said yes. I usually use Android message.

    I really like the new Samsung keyboard
    This is the Earth version? If not, what planet are you on? It's the worst keyboard ever.

    Well unfortunately it worked except Bixby seems to be overriding the setting and automatically turning Samsung voice back on

    Well that sucks. I tried Bixby the other day but quickly disabled it again so mine has stayed toggled off for now.

    Ok, they all do that. But what Samsung Keyboard also does is aggressively autocorrects everyday words, abbreviations, and shorthand and won't let you change it without turning off autocorrect. It doesn't let you update the dictionary. It's an extreme PITA compared to older Samsung keyboards and other current keyboards.

    Not having any issue updating the dictionary or aggressive autocorrect. I can also change any word at the touch of a button. Gboard has never stored my email address.

    If it's ok with you, I'd like to keep using the keyboard I prefer. You're free to use whatever works for you.

    I have Bixby voice installed and it's not overriding Google voice on my message keyboard.
