Android keyboard bar not working

BarryHawkner Posts: 1

The top toolbar that pops up with the arrow keys and ctrl and other keyboard functions will appear briefly when I click the keyboard button, then disappears right after. Is there a solution to this?

    I have the same problem on a Samsung Ultra20 5g

    Click on the keyboard icon to Bring up the keyboard to login remotely, and it flashes top bar quickly, and both top and bottom bars disappear. Mouse works fine.

    Seems coincident with a new update as the interface is different.

    Works fine from a windows PC.

    I just solved my own problem by enabling full screen mode on Android settings for this app

    Experiencing the same issue since latest update.

    Using Samsung S20+ .

    Tried uninstalling and reinstalling as per suggestion of Teamviewer support member who replied on my Google Store review for the app. Did not solve.

    I have a samsung S20+ and the temporary workaround for me was to rotate the screen sideways and then the keyboard stays on the screen. The issue is that you can't see the majority of the screen because of the keyboard


    PLEASE FIX!!!!

    This was working just fine before latest update of the Android version of TeamViewer.
