in Applications


Xperia Keyboard 7.2.A.0.32_2Sony Mobile has updated the Xperia Keyboard to build number 7.2.A.0.32, which introduces four new coloured keyboard skins. Now when you click on the “Keyboard skins” option you are treated to options for Blue, Green, Pink and Purple colours, adding more customisation whilst typing away.

Other changes include the addition of a settings shortcut on the main keyboard layout – simply long press to access the settings directly. Also, there is now an option within Keyboard settings > Keypress feedback to enable/disable key popup. Other smaller changes include a better Arabic keyboard layout and improved key press logic to enhance prediction. The update is current live on the Google Play Store.

    Red is missing :/

  • muhkuhap

    Why not just a simple RGB color-picker? …

  • What icon is that in the messaging app? Video option? It’s available with Marshmallow?

  • Jecht_Sin

    It’s hangout..

  • Jecht_Sin

    Does anyone know how we can make our own themes? Only for the keyboard, independent from the UI themes.

    Good update. Never knew how annoying and useless the popup letters were until I turned them off.

  • esniper

    parekoh updated nako…

  • Jan Ibrahim

    why not use the lovely green that the z5 comes in to match? I would have thought this was obvious!

  • Sean Crockenberg

    It would be nice to stop the keyboard coming up when using a physical keyboard, such as the XTZ4 keyboard cover.

  • MrCMTS

    I would love just that

  • Stanley08

    Yeah! Who needs Marshmallow on my Z3 when i can type on a pink or blue keyboard?

    (In case you missed it, it’s sarcasm. Yes.)

  • David Horvath

    the skins do not match the z5 body colors… only the purple matches the Z3 / Z2 / Z purple unless you have the A4 from Japan.

  • iia3ezu

    Why not have a truly universal international keyboard app and support Chinese, Japanese and Korean language input too?

  • Ambitious Man

    i agree!

  • Sendian

    Xperia keyboard with BLUE skin that’s really what I needed!
    Now all other keyboards Worth noting! ^_^

  • Timel

    That on-screen buttons is very annoying

  • BitToe
  • Eduardo Otero

    Actually I don’t need Marshmallow when I can have a purple keyboard xD

  • I don’t care about the color, but I would love a resize function as in SwiftKey! Xperia Keyboard needs 50% of my Z1c screen :(

  • Bashar Shehab

    Because Japanese, Chinese, and Korean have so much fucked up difficult typing methods, it’s impossible to put them all in 1 keyboard without fucking the user experience.

  • Midleo

    Your explanation is so pointed

  • cicababa

    Swiftkey did it. It’s a fucking amazing user experience FYI

  • fried_egg

    Because on the z5 the menu bar remains in the same physical location on the “landscape” screen as it does in “portrait” (ie the bottom of the phone not the new bottom of the screen) the lower lines of the qwerty keyboard are TOO LOW for a normal thumb arc leading to many typos. In earlier xperia eg x10 & S and for the first year of the Z1 before a keyboard update the menu line appeared under the qwerty keyboard giving it a lift up the screen and thus making it much easier to type. I wish you could raise the keyboard up the screen a little

    I’m happy with Google Keyboard :) a much more stable, reliable solution

    Yeah, the swiping isn’t great on the xperia keyboard, only thing i like the xperia keyboard over google keyboard is that it remembers the email address you typed.

  • Wolf0491

    Never used this keyboard. How does it compare to SwiftKey?

  • Dominic81

    Google Keyboard is great as long as you don’t use 2 or more languages. Modern keyboards detect what language you’re typing in, and it autocorrects accordingly… Swiftkey does that, the Sony keyboard does that, but not the Google keyboard.

    I type in English and French all the time, and I always have to remember to change the language manually. That’s a pain in the ass

  • mugglearchitect

    what is this theme?

  • betatesterz

    ….reminds me too much of Microsoft’s surface typecover =.=

  • Svnjay

    I switched to the purple skin :)

    Just the way around: Because of multiple languages I stick to the Google Keyboard.. Because it won’t mix up different languages when it is not supposed to, BUT I can quickly swap between languages! As there is a small globus icon just for this purpose on the bottom left! Super easy and fast!

    Another reason is, that one can neither adjust the “long press” time nor is it fast enough by default. I don’t want to accept having to press longer than needed for numbers and shit ;-)

    I tried it now. I’m learning Japanese now, it’s good for non-Japanese speakers, but for the normal Japanese guys they don’t really know how to type with Romaji, so it must be a traditional keyboard with Hiragana and Katakana only, not Romaji.

    The traditional keyboard is like Sony’s or Google’s ones.

  • cicababa

    Japanese? I’m luckier, I’m learning & teaching Korean, we have only one writing system :D

  • Brick

    I’ve had marshmallow on my z3 for like 3weeks now and believe me it’s not worth obsessing over it, it’s not a revolutionary update like lollipop was.

  • Bashar Shehab

    Just for your info, Romaji is the Japanese writing with English letters, and not all of the Japanese guys know how to type Romaji ( I guess)
    So the official keyboards on any phone are always with the traditional Hiragana thing. :p

    japanese and chinese writing are quite difficult because they have
    traditional and modern style of writing their language specially they
    look the same but apparently they didnt have the same meaning
