One UI - Keyboard Space below

First Poster

I really like the new update and everything seems really nice and sleek, however, the one thing that bothers me is the space below the keyboard when you're on full screen mode. Before the update, it wasn't like that at all, now, however, it seems like it's a wasted space below.


Before buying the Samsung Galaxy S9, what I disliked about the iPhone X was the space below its keyboard. Now that the new One UI has it too, it's a bit disappointing to have wasted space down below. Thankfully that space only appears on the keyboard though.


Was this overlooked or is it possible to adjust the keyboard to full screen mode?

go Size and Tranparency

You should be able to chage the layout there.

This is actually hilarious. Never really occurred to me that the bottom edge can be dragged lower than it is too until now. The fact that this effectively repositions your keyboard, yet nothing points this out in either the name or description of the setting page kinda throws me for a loop. I mean, what the hell Samsung?

Same here...Samsung's statement: our test penel though this was the best option, so deal with the design...


I just want to be able to change this myself, like Android should be!

A litle only....But not the whole bar.

You could use the "show button to hide keyboard " option in Navigation bar menu. It helped me to solve this issue. 

Galaxy 10, Android 10 



But stupid that Samsung customer support doesn't know this.

This is prime bs. Clearly it's a bug with fullscreen gestures enabled.

I have the same problem, I found a solution, go to settings them display them navigation bar and turn off the option that said show bottom to hide keyboard  and that it!Screenshot_20191230-055522_Settings.jpg



Just turn off the "Show button to hide keyboard". It worked for me. Btw im using GBoard. 

That worked for me, s9, android 10
