How do you capitalize words on Android?

Answered by Phillip Nicastro

When it comes to capitalizing words on Android, there’s a simple trick that I find really helpful. I use an Android phone with Gboard as my keyboard, and with just three touches, I can easily capitalize the first letter of any word.

Here’s how it works:

1. Double-tap the word: To start, I double-tap the word that I want to capitalize. This action highlights the entire word, making it easier to work with.

2. Tap the shift button: Once the word is highlighted, I look for the shift button on the keyboard. It’s usually represented by an upward arrow. Tapping this button once will capitalize the first letter of the selected word.

3. Done! That’s it! With just those two taps, the first letter of the word is capitalized. It’s a quick and convenient way to ensure proper capitalization without having to delete and retype the word.

I find this method really handy, especially when I’m typing quickly and want to fix the capitalization of a word without interrupting my flow. It saves me time and effort, as I don’t have to manually edit the word or erase and retype it.

So, if you’re using an Android phone and Gboard, remember the double-tap and shift button method to easily capitalize words. It’s a small but useful feature that can enhance your typing experience and help you maintain proper capitalization in your texts.
