I would like to know how to create a newline on the current android keyboard (for example in a sms). And if it could be entered - would it be displayed?

Edit: If you've got Android 4.1.

It is just below the delete button.

Edit2 : For Android 2.X it still is the question, where to find it.

    Can you please clarify what version of Android are you running? 2.3? 4.0+? What is your phone? Is it running a manufacturer keyboard or stock Android? – Raghd Hamzeh Dec 17 '12 at 8:48

Simply press the enter/return button in your key board. It is located at the right botton corner of your keyboard.

In some cases, this button sends the SMS (or submit applications, in cases of forms in websites) If your device does that, simply hit enter/return button while holding the shift button or the upside arrow


Hope this helps.

Press the shift key or the key to change letters from lovercase to uppercase and the Emoji button should change to a Return key.
