Google’s Gboard keyboard finally introduced a split keyboard option last week, but it was only available for foldable devices. The split keyboard in Gboard works with Microsoft’s Surface Duo; it turns out.

The split virtual keyboard is not a common Feature on larger screens. Apple’s iPad has offered the Feature for many years. Third-party keyboards for Android often have this option for tablet users.

After months of the Feature being in progress, Gboard added a split keyboard last week. The Feature was not available at launch to large-screen folding devices such as the Galaxy Z Fold 3, but it was clear. Windows Central has highlighted that the Microsoft Surface Duo users’ split keyboard option in Googleboard works.

The Feature only works when the Surface Duo is open, with both halves of keyboards showing up on one of the two displays. It doesn’t work if an app spans both displays. This is unlike Microsoft SwiftKey, which allows you to use a split keyboard even though an app is only on one show.

Shane Craig demonstrates how the split keyboard appears when the device is in “Compose” mode.Gboard’s new optimizations have been noticed, and it has also been noted that Surface Duo has been receiving some support from other apps in recent weeks. This week, Where to See, an app that helps you find services and places near you, received official approval. Talon for Twitter added support, Sync for Reddit, and Talon for Twitter.
