The phone comes with one alternative keyboard built in – the Samsung Keyboard Neural – but you can install additional keyboards from the Google Play store and use them as well.
You can install as many keyboards as you like, and switch among them with a couple of taps.
How to install and activate a new keyboard on a Samsung Galaxy S10
Before you can change the default keyboard, you need to have at least one other keyboard to switch to. You can install keyboards from the Google Play store as you would any other app, but keyboards generally need to be enabled before you can use them on the phone.
1. Start the Google Play Store app.
2. Find the keyboard app you want to install. Popular keyboards include SwiftKey, GBoard, and Grammarly.
3. Tap “Install.”
4. After it’s installed, tap the keyboard app you just downloaded to start it.
5. Follow the instructions in the app to enable it.
