Limited to 4 languages on your mobile phone?

Hey, Just wondering if it is only me. Does anyone have a solution to this nonsense?

My Samsung phone tells me that I can only have 4 keyboard languages at a time. I really dislike this limitation. How do you choose? Ok, so it’s not Sophie’s Choice, but it sure did take me some contemplation before determining which languages to limit myself to.


I don’t think it restricts you to the number of keyboard languages, because I have 9 language keyboards on my Samsung phone

@Jinyoung I have 7 languages installed, but while texting I can only switch between 4 main ones.
Under “Manage Input Languages” it says “Maximum number of supported languages (4) reached”

My husband has the same situation even though we have different Samsung phones.

I use SwiftKey which allows you to use 5 language keyboards at a time, still not enough at times tho

Switch to GBoard! I have 27 different keyboards installed, even from languages I don’t speak yet… And I speak 12 languages.

First deactivate SwiftKey and activate GBoard.
System -> Language and Entry -> Virtual Keyboard -> Manage Keyboards -> Gboard.

Second, for adding new language to GBoard:
System -> Language and Entry -> Virtual Keyboard -> Gboard -> Languages.
Choose the desired languages and keyboards. (You have to repeat the process for every language you add).

After you have the desired keyboards installed, you have a mapamundi on the left side of your spacebar. Hold the mapamundi and you’ll see a choice list. Choose your language et voilà!


This is so amazing! I am in love with GBoard! Thank you so much for the recommendation!

Yes! Gboard is the best nowadays, but it could be more comfortable… well at least you don’t have that annoying limitation.

Exacto, lo bueno es que tenés la posibilidad de cargar N idiomas y más de un tipo de teclado por idioma.
