According to this Droid Life post from Jun 1st 2015, Android M introduced the split layout to the default keyboard by Google.

I have a Moto G3 with Android v6.0 and the "Enable split keyboard" option shown below, is not available.

enter image description here

Was this feature ever added? Perhaps in an update to v6.0 I might not have yet?

  • It is specific to tablets only it appears. – DukeSilversJazz Feb 2 '16 at 20:21
  • Can you confirm you have a tablet with v6.0 and this option available and/or a cell with v6.0 and this option not available? – Gabriel Feb 2 '16 at 20:23

    I don't see the option on my Nexus 6, plus the article you linked the headline reads "Android M Feature: Google Added a Split Keyboard for Tablets". I do not have a tablet running Android M. – DukeSilversJazz Feb 2 '16 at 20:28
  • That could be it then. Would you like to post your comment as an answer? – Gabriel Feb 2 '16 at 20:29
  • Sure, I will do that. – DukeSilversJazz Feb 2 '16 at 20:30

This applies to tablets running Android M only at this time, as on my Nexus 6 running Android M the option does not appear.

Thanks to @Firelord for this Android Police link and information:

"Here's the thing, though: you won't find this option on phones."
