Is there any way to stop the "choose input method" from showing up in my status bar and notification tray when typing? With my past experience there was an option to stop this. I can't seem to find it on this phone.

Go into "Settings" then "Language & Input"
It should let you set the default keyboard method there.

Hope this helps.

Yeah, I chose the default but it still shows the input method notification. I use the Google keyboard from the Play Store...not sure if that makes any difference.

I have a Samsung note 4 and I realized how to stop this. It's when you exit the message app or leave the keyboard open when I hit the back space and close keyboard I do not get the input method on my status bar anymore. Hope this hellos
