One-Handed Texting, Google Keyboard.


Google is making it even easier for Android users to hold a Starbucks Frappuccino in one hand while texting friends with the other.

Google Keyboard on Android just released an update that has many cool new features, but there’s one in particular that everyone’s excited about: One-handed texting.

To make one-thumb typing a breeze, this update shrinks the keyboard and moves it to one side of the screen depending on your dominant hand. Turning on the feature is super simple: Just hold down the comma button on your keyboard and click on the hand icon that appears. You can also switch which side of the screen your miniature keyboard is on by clicking the arrows that appear when you enable one-handed texting.

And if you’re an iPhone user, don’t worry: Microsoft released a free app with similar features called Word Flow, so check it out if you’re jealous.
