How to install the Google Keyboard 4.0 from Android Lollipop on your device right now


That fine-looking light keyboard theme you have been salivating after since it appeared in the new Chrome edition screenshots in the Play Store, is finally upon us. Google unleashed the Android 5.0 Lollipop developer preview already, and that same Material Design Keyboard 4.0 is in it, with the respective Light and Dark themes we've been marveling for a while now.

If you want to have the newest Google keyboard installed on your Android handset, instead of waiting for the Lollipop update to hit your handset in the distant (or not so distant) future, here's what you need to do:

1. Just download the Google Keyboard 4.0 APK file, and install it on your handset;

2. Go to the language and input settings menu, and enable the Google keyboard as default. If you want to change the theme, go to the keyboard's settings, and choose one of the four available, which include the two Lollipop ones.

That's all folks, now you have the pretty new Material Design Google keyboard on your handset without breaking a sweat, in all its Light and Dark themes glory.
