    It looks like the new Google keyboard from Android N Developer Preview 3 can actually be downloaded and installed to your device without actually having to install the Dev Preview! Not only do we get Emoji color options the new keyboard also apparently includes some new themes! Not only do you get some cool new background colors for your keyboard, but there is now an option to add your own keyboard background image! Grab the new Google Keyboard from the download link below.

    via Download

    It came pre-installed on our Turbo 2's FoxKat, unless you replaced it with a different keyboard.

    Disregard that post Fox. I thought you were asking about the basic Google Keyboard, now I see this is about the new Dev preview. Should be right where Mustang said to look.

    Make sure you have 5.1 installed. Then go to Settings > Language & Input > Click Google Keyboard. There you'll see all the themes and other options you can change.

    The APK is safe right? I always reluctant sideloading app from unknown source

    The link is direct download/mediafire without mentioning the source.

    TIA

    If DMX posts a link to a file you can pretty much be assured it's safe.

    Perhaps it's the learning my habits factor but with the newest update my gesture typing and suggestions have gone just wrong. Yesterday it was scary accurate but today it's frustratingly inaccurate.

    I went to load it, but file had "Latin" within its name. I don't want to download a Latin keyboard

    Forgive my ignorance if I'm wrong.

    You'd think after bring an OG Droid 'er I'd know the right thing to do by now

    It's not a Latin keyboard.
