People are just now realizing that Android has hidden “Super Click” with 16 SMS perks – stop living in the past
ANDROID users have been urged to try a hidden setting that may help them text more efficiently.
People who own Android-powered devices are now aware of the many helpful tools that come packed with them.
However, there is one feature that many users don’t know about: Android’s tap-and-hold shortcut in Gboard.
Gboard, also known as Google Keyboard, is an alternative keyboard used by Android devices.
The handy keyboard, launched in May 2016, can help Android users to write text faster and easier.
How does it work?
If you long press the buttons on Gboard, you can get all numbers and most characters.
To do this, first make sure you have activated Gboard on your Android device.
Go to your Android phone, open the Settings app, tap on “System” and select “Languages & input”.
From there, tap Virtual Keyboard, click Manage Keyboards, and then turn on Gboard.
After you’ve done that, tap the three-dot menu icon on the top row of Gboard.
Then find the Settings icon and tap on it, then select Settings and turn on Long press for Icons.
How to use long press
Exist your settings and open an app that gives you access to Gboard.
You should see several secondary key icons in the corner of each key on your keyboard.
To use them, simply hold down any key until alternative options appear.
This means a much faster way to compose and send text messages.
Even so, that first line is missing some punctuation, including the slash.
To find “Slash,” just press and hold the Gboard dot button for a second, then slide your finger to the left to get the icon.
