When it comes to Android, customization is one the operating system’s key features. Something that isn’t quite unique to Android anymore but is still a core feature is the ability to change keyboards. One of the most popular, Google’s own Gboard, is now the subject of discussion on Reddit because some have been experiencing issues.

Gboard, having been installed on between 500,000,000 and 1,000,000,000 Android devices, is one of the most popular virtual keyboards on the Play Store. It features swipe typing, voice typing, a built-in Google search, GIF support, Google translate, support for over 120 languages, and much more.

The issue being reported on Reddit is about the Gboard keyboard freezing and lagging in increasing frequency. While a number of users also report the same issue, a much larger discussion started about how many have found the swipe typing functionality becoming less reliable.
