In order to enable the floating mode, follow the steps written below:
  • Tap the arrow icon at the top left of Gboard
  • After that, tap on the three-dot menu
  • Select “Floating”

This will enable a “handle” at the bottom. It will allow you to move the keyboard around the screen and resize it. This can be especially useful on tablets and phones with larger displays as a continuation of the current one-handed mode.

Gboard Floating Mode works for only a couple of moments. After that, Gboard reverts to its default “docked” mode. Before enabling the floating mode in Gboard, keep in mind that feature is still being tested internally so it will be available for some minutes only. Some users report that the feature works for only a couple of minutes before switching off on its own. So, keep this fact in your mind. Reportedly, the floating mode will go live in the coming weeks. Then all the users will be able to enjoy this mode for long-term use. We can hope that Android users have not to wait for so long.
