Gboard is one of our favorite keyboards with a vast array of features and usually great stability. Well, that stability has been wobbling for some this week, as redditors have seen issues with glide typing including the inability to type basic words.

Thankfully, there is a fix, and you don't have to wait on an app update to get it.
If you're experiencing this bug, Google has confirmed in a statement to 9to5Google that there are two very basic troubleshooting steps that will permanently fix this problem if you come across it: you can reboot your phone, or you can force-stop Gboard:
- Open Settings.
- Tap Apps.
- Tap Gboard.
Tap Force stop.
