Gboard bug prevents users from glide typing, but here is how you can fix it
It appears that one of the Gboard updates released by Google recently may have added a bug that is now preventing users from glide typing correctly. Also known as “swipe typing,” Gboard's glide typing feature can even break completely, so you can imagine the frustration that many Android users have been subjected to.

The issue appeared only recently, but Google has already acknowledged the situation and promised to provide Gboard users a fix very soon. The developers have even offered those anxious to start using glide typing again a workaround:


Well, you'll be pleased to know that if you're using the workaround provided initially by Google, the issue will completely disappear and you'll be able to take advantage of Gboard's glide typing. We don't know if Google will still deploy a bug fix for Gboard, but if you have any issues with glide typing, use the workaround above.

"We don't know if Google will still deploy a bug fix for Gboard" You've literally quoted them in the clip above saying "We’re aware of a bug that affects glide typing accuracy in Gboard. We’re working on a fix..." Does anybody at (i)phonearena proof read anyone's work before publishing?

I think phonearena will not stop there attack on anything but Apple, until we have no other choice but iOS. This sight is really bothering me I'm considering leaving after many years being a member.

I knew something was up, I Googled it but couldn't find anything.

Wondered why my keyboard was being flakey. A reboot fixed the issue so I didn't look further into it.
