    It took a bit of time for me to get used to but it eventually worked out. A great alternative to Gboard with lightweight (10 MB) and has no unnecessary features (GIFs, stickers etc.)

    It's basically the open source alternative to Gboard doing all the same while also being privacy-oriented and trustworty (unlike proprietary virtual keyboards that undoubtedly are not your friend, unfortunately). OpenBoard is a no-brainer and I urge people to try it. :)
