I can’t enable my Gboard in the virtual keyboards settings

Try these troubleshooting steps:

  1. Restart phone
  2. Clear Cache
  3. Uninstall Updates (for gboard app, if any – the three dots menu and uninstall updates)
  4. Force stop
  5. Uninstall App
  6. Reinstall app

Next try this:

  1. Go to keyboard settings
  2. Disable all other keyboards (except stock)
  3. Try to select gboard
  4. If still doesn’t work, with all the other keyboards unselected, now try the original 6 steps and try again

If it still doesn’t work:

  • Restart your phone in safe mode, try again

Finally, as a last resort, try this:

  • Factory restart phone (after backing everything up)
