Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge: How to Switch Between Keyboards in Android 5.1.1 Lollipop

For some reason, you might want to install a third-party keyboard app or some in your Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, e.g., when the Samsung default keyboard doesn't have the feature you're looking for. After installing, you're usually asked to set the third-party keyboard app as the default. In case you want to use the Samsung keyboard again or use another keyboard, you can easily switch between keyboards by changing the default keyboard to the required one.


How to switch between keyboards?
As the example, we'll do so by using two different methods: from the settings menu and from the screen or app where you can enter text.


Method #1: From the settings menu
  1. On any screen, swipe down the top of the screen to open up the notification panel and then tap at the top right to go to the settings menu.
  2. Scroll down to the System section and then tap Language and input.
  3. Tap Default keyboard.
  4. Select the required keyboard you want to use.
  5. The selected keyboard has been set as the default and you're now ready to use it.


Method #2: From an app or screen where you can enter text
  1. When you're entering text, e.g., when composing a new text message, swipe down the top of the screen to open up the notification panel and then tap Select keyboard.
  2. Select the required keyboard you want to use.
  3. The selected keyboard has been set as the default and you're now ready to use it.

As a note, when you're using the Samsung keyboard, you can use the keyboard sound feature to have your phone plays a sound when the Samsung keyboard is tapped.
