Remove the "Google" from Gboard space bar 4 Recommended Answers 363 Replies 2721 Upvotes

Edit: To anyone who still needs help, I got the "Google" to go away by changing around the options on my suggestion bar. Turns out it can go away. Don't know if it's just a temporary fix or not, or if it'll work for every user.

___________________
For some reason, the layout of Gboard on my phone just randomly changed. There usually isn't "Google" across the spacebar, and the little arrow on the suggestion bar is usually the search function. Not for emojis but for searching up things on Google via the keyboard. I don't know there's been an update, but how do I put the search area back where the arrow is, and remove the "Google" from the space bar. I already have search enabled but it doesn't seem to bring back the browser search feature. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling as well.

I hate all these useless features google keeps adding. I'm so angry that they think they can advertise to me on my own keyboard. I don't want to look at their logo.

Yeah I hope there is a way to remove it. It's quite annoying to look at.

I quickly looked through Gboard's settings to no avail. It's an eye sore.

Technically it was a dormant update.  It was just activated; maybe when the Google app updated.  I say this because if you browse through months of previous versions (and install them) the Google Text is there as well.  The last build to not include it is a release build of v8, right before v9.

Furthermore it is more than a eyesore, it is a typing speed and concentration regression (at least for me).  This is because unconsciously my eyes keep looking at the "Google" imprinted on the Spacebar.

Searching for things take longer too.

Gboard team: This is a choice of design over function.  And the team member who approved it should be sacked (on the head with a albatross).

Only bypass for now would be to add one more language, and thus your current language will appear. It's still an eye sore tho.

The logo on the space bar looks hideous and like some low grade keyboard app. I dont want to switch keyboards but I will entirely because of this

I never had ”Google" I have the the word ”English" on mine instead. Tried adding languages, clear data etc and still there. I'll send a report and use Swiftkey instead. I'm sick of Google and all their bullshit, in the middle of upgrading to pixel 3xl and seriously considering switching to Samsung instead. I've had enough.
