Google M Android Keyboard can be Splilted! – Cool web

The split keyboard function is actually not a "spectacular" new thing on Android, especially on tablet devices. Almost all third-party cockroaches that are officially available on the Google Play Store already display this function. Like for example swiftkey, thumb keyboard, and others. Even Apple iOS has preceded the use of this split keyboard display.

However, this is the first on the Google Keyboard. The basic idea is simple, you will have difficulty reaching the middle of the keyboard when the screen is too wide (for example, on a 6-inch Nexus 6 phablet or tablet device in general). Especially if my friend used to only use the thumb when typing on the cell phone. Display keyboard that is divided in half with left and right evenly makes it easier to type with two thumbs.

However, you will not get this feature on the Google Keyboard that you have greetings in the near future. While this feature is only found on devices that have received an Android M Developer Preview update, the Nexus 5 series and above (Nexus 6 and also Nexus 9).

This feature is also not the default display, if you want to use it, you have to make your own adjustments. the way is to enter the settings menu (settings) >> Language and Input >> Google Keyboard Settings >> Advanced >> Appearance and Layouts >> select Split Keyboard.

Along with the presence of this keyboard, and with the same idea, Google also presents a dynamic notification panel feature on Android M. If previously the notification panel is right in the middle and if opened by sliding it from top to bottom will cover the entire screen, the Android M notification panel will appears dynamically, can be on the right side or on the left side according to how users open it.
