Alt codes don't seem to do anything. AltGr + O, U, A create ó, ú, á.

I need a way to type ö, ü and ä without switching layouts. I'm using a Galaxy Tab S7 on Android 11, if it matters.

  • Try to type " followed by A/O/U. That works on a International Keyboard Layout.

  • @Seth pretty sure that won't work on Android.

The "international" version for US keyboards is

  • AltGr+q-> ä
  • AltGr+y-> ü
  • AltGr+p-> ö

But whether this actually works might depend on how your physical keyboard is configured, as well as on your Android configuration.

Here's an image (source: Wikipedia) of the international layout:
