Multiple users on reddit and other various product forums are reporting a bug inside Gboard, Google’s keyboard app. The bug is apparently messing with glide typing, which is the function that lets you swipe across letters to type a message.
While you can still glide around, the keyboard is inputting words that don’t match with what users are typing through glide. Naturally, that would be extremely annoying when you attempt to say one thing, but the keyboard recognizes it as something else.
Thankfully, Google has acknowledged the issue and is working on a fix, according to a statement provided to 9to5Google.
We’re aware of a bug that affects glide typing accuracy in Gboard. We’re working on a fix; in the meantime, force-quitting Gboard or rebooting your phone may provide a temporary solution.
So you can either wait for a fix or reboot your phone to see if that corrects the issue for a bit. We’ll you posted when a fix is live.
