Type Accents in Android

To type accents in Android, I recommend the app Smart Keyboard.

  1. Download the free version or pro version of the app and install it on your device
  2. Go to “Language and keyboard” and check the “Smart Keyboard” box
  3. Go to “Settings > Language > Current Language” and choose “English (International)”
  4. Press inside any app’s text box in order to activate a popup menu. Choose “Input Method” and then “Smart Keyboard”

That’s it! Now you can type accents in any program by pressing and holding the button for the unaccented letter for a moment. A list of accented letters will pop up for you to choose from.

  • To type á, press and hold a, then choose.
  • To type ú or ü, press and hold u, then make your selection.
  • To type ñ, press and hold n.
