The crisis is here again. The error sign that we all get and silently wait for it to stop flashing. Just a few days back, I started getting the “unfortunately android keyboard has stopped” message on my phone. It’s quite a bummer you see. If you are facing the same and here for a solution, you are in the right place. 

Fix Unfortunately Android Keyboard Stopped

Most people these days use Android Smartphones, especially Samsung. I agree that Windows phones and iPhones have a pretty good market share, especially since the iPhone has a pretty significant user base in some countries. As we talk about android apps, YouTube Vanced is an incredible free app that helps you get rid of the ads. Now with the Vanced app, you can watch YouTube videos without ads.

But Samsung, or Android in general, is the current king of smartphone OS. Android’s Samsung is a great OS, but you can face some errors with your Android phone/tablet from time to time. Most of these issues will be software-related, and only a few people will meet these, but unfortunately, I’m among those people.

Today, I will be discussing one of the most significant software issues on Samsung Android. A few days back, I was using one of my phones (Micromax Canvas Blaze MT500) when I get the error that says “unfortunately, the android keyboard has stopped.” Because of this error, I was unable to use the Android keyboards of the phone.

Thus, I can’t do anything (like browsing the web, chat with someone on WhatsApp, reply to emails, etc.) with the phone. It was a pretty irritating thing that happened to me last week. But after some tries, I get rid of the issue, and here I’m sharing my experience.
