The built-in Samsung Keybaord provides four different themes that you can use to change the color of your keyboard. These themes include – Light, Solid light, Dark, and Solid dark.

  1. Open Settings on your Samsung phone.
  2. Go to General Management.
  3. Tap Samsung keyboard settings.
  4. Tap Themes.
  5. Choose one between four themes.

Instead, you can tap the Settings icon >> Themes while using the Samsung Keyboard.
