Top Marathi Keyboards For Typing Marathi On Your Android
In February of 2020, I joined my first ever company in Bangalore and In March of 2020, I got stuck in Banglore working from home. And by May of 2020, I finally got to come back home when the lockdown was lifted. Since I have always lived with my parents like most Indian kids, they were head over heals worried about the circumstances. But you know what got me through all those days? Video chats, calls, and messaging. Being in touch with my friends and family (Since I didn’t have anyone there) got me through that.
But there is one more thing that added that extra personal touch that was much need for me. And that was texting in Marathi. The language that you grew up with has a way of making you feel at home, doesn’t it? I learned to do that quite recently.
Marathi is one of the most culturally rich languages you could find. But texting in Marathi is not as easy especially without the proper tool. There are so many tools out there for typing in Marathi on your phone or even your laptop. But most of them just don’t cut it for me. And from the few that do, it is hard to choose the one that would be right for you.
For this reason, I have brought this curated list of best Keyboard Apps out there for texting in Marathi.
Top 3 Marathi Typing App for the Marathi loving Android Users
1. Marathi Keyboard with Marathi stickers
This is the app that I got and I stuck with. I think that is quite a praise but let me tell you the reason. It allows you to either write in Marathi directly or use its brilliant text to voice features and let the keyboard write for you. I prefer this keyboard for its amazing algorithm that really grasps the user intent and the Marathi accent.
But the best part about this application is that it allows you to create Animated photos/avatars of yourself. You can then use these pictures to generate personalized Marathi stickers (Stickers with your animated avatar head). You can also create similar stickers using photos of your friends and loved ones and add Marathi text of your choice.So if you are looking for a Marathi Keyboard with Marathi Stickers, then this is a good pick.
Marathi Keyboard has a wide range of gifs and Marathi stickers for you to choose from. In addition to all that you can also create a personalized theme for the Marathi Keyboard or choose from many default themes that come with the keyboard. This Marathi Keyboard with Marathi Stickers will change the chatting game for you. Stand out in all the group chats with amazing fonts and Bigmoji’s that this keyboard lets you send. And the best part is that you don’t have to worry about ads or pay for anything.
2. Sparsh Marathi Keyboard by Sparsh Team
Developed by Sparsh Team it is one of the most desired keyboards on play store for typing Marathi. They boast that this is the only Keyboard app you need to satisfy all of your Marathi texting needs. It is quite a decent keyboard from my experience. It has this key feature that allows you to switch between Marathi and English Keyboard with just one tap. It even enables you to type in English and suggests Marathi words for your typing.
The thing that put me of using this keyboard is that it hangs a lot, also when you press full stop the keyboard would return comma. Since I write a lot and punctuation are quite important it made me stopped using it at that time. It also didn’t have a voice to text feature that I would love to have so much (I am a fluent Marathi Speaker but typing it is a whole other ball game).
3. Marathi Keyboard by Desh Keyboard
This is also quite a popular app amongst the Marathi audience. It has basic features of language keyboards like english to marathi transalation, all app support, marathi keyboard, marathi predictions etc. The developers also take pride in this keyboard being phonetic Marathi transliteration keyboard. For getting your hands on all the feature you would have to buy the premium version of this Marathi Keyboard app for a small one-time cost. And I would say to go with the premium version because there is nothing more annoying than ads between texting.
It also doesn’t support all the stickers. I couldn’t find the giggling emoji and the emoji with three hearts surrounding it. But may be the premium version have that.
