There are problems with Gboard, the keyboard developed by Google for Android smartphones. Several users report that input via swipe gestures is not working properly, and Google says they are aware of the problems.
In a reaction to 9To5Google, Google has indicated to be aware of the problems and to work on a solution. Users can also try a few things to make the sweeping movements work again: the internet giant recommends restarting the smartphone or forced Gboard to stop.
Gboard is also available for iOS, but the problems seem to concentrate mainly around the Android version of the app.
