Editorial Review

In my view this is the best Chinese input method for Android. Itís got all the import features, plus a couple of extra cool ones, including Chinese swipe input. The fuzzy pinyin is also really nice, as is the handwriting input. The major win for Google Pinyin Input is that the English input is also really nice, and not just an after-thought. What I really hope to see in future is some sort of universal Android keyboard that lets us select and switch between an arbitrary set of languages, all well thought-out and implemented. Smart Keyboard PRO nearly does it but itís missing essential features. Until it gets those right, Google Pinyin Input is the best.


The Google Pinyin Input is an input method (IME) optimized for typing Chinese on Android. The app offers a variety of methods for fast and easy input of Chinese characters.
Key features:
- QWERTY Pinyin keyboard with gesture typing and intelligent correction
- 9 key Pinyin keyboard with gesture typing
- Stroke keyboard
- Full screen and half screen handwriting keyboard
- Latin keyboard
- Fuzzy pinyin
- Double pinyin
- Optimized UI for different screen sizes
- Voice input
- Themes

The app supports both simplified and traditional Chinese characters, as well as punctuation, emoticons, Latin characters and digits. Voice input is network-based in order to provide highly accurate matches.

Note: To be used on your Android device, the input method must be enabled in "Settings" → "Language & Input".

For typing Cantonese, you could download the Google Cantonese Input:

For typing traditional Chinese by Zhuyin or Cangjie, you could download the Google Zhuyin Input:
