To apply AirDroid Business Keyboard to an enrolled device, please open the Desktop Client.
These steps may vary due to different Android versions and device models.
If your devices are unable to enter texts after exiting Remote Control, please refer to What should I do to switch the on-screen keyboard on the device?
If your devices are NON-ROOTED, please refer to HERE.
If your devices are ROOTED, please refer to HERE.
For Non-rooted devices:
Note: Due to the limitation of non-rooted devices, if your device is Android 7 or above and also enabled Accessibility, you need to manually enable AirDroid Keyboard for entering texts on your devices.
1. Select an enrolled device from the devices list. Click Remote Control and go to any text bar on the device.
Please tap on the keyboard icon and it will pop up a menu that requires you to switch AirDroid Keyboard.
If it is the first time to use AirDroid Keyboard, it will switch to Manage on-screen keyboards, please tap on Manage keyboards (or Virtual Keyboard) to enable AirDroid Keyboard as the screenshot.
Note: If it does not switch to the Settings, please go to Settings > System > Language & input > Virtual Keyboard and enable AirDroid Keyboard.
2. After that, click the keyboard icon at the bottom and select AirDroid Business Keyboard.
Once the message at the bottom says the keyboard is ready, you may start typing.
For Rooted devices:
If you need to use the computer keyboard to enter texts in the desktop client, please tap on the search bar and the AirDroid Keyboard will be automatically enabled.
However, if your devices need to manually enable or disable AirDroid Keyboard, please refer to the following instructions.
1. Select an enrolled device from the devices list. Click Remote Control and go to the Settings icon on your device.
2. Click Language and input > Default keyboard > SET UP INPUT METHODS.
4. Turn AirDroid Business Keyboard on and click OK to proceed.
5. You're all set! As mentioned earlier, you don't need to repeat the same steps again when reconnecting the keyboard because rooted devices automatically enable the keyboard on their own.
