I had to install a different keyboard from the play store, switch to the new keyboard in settings, then uninstall gboard, then reinstall gboard from the play store, then switch back to gboard in settings. Now the space bar is back.

If you don't install an other keyboard before uninstalling Gboard you may have trouble typing into the play store search to reinstall gboard.

Try clearing the cache for the keyboard.

I am also getting pop-ups from Motorola telling me that Message stopped. Motorola updated the phone yesterday and screwed up my phone!!!

Having the keyboard pop up is certainly a crucial part of a smart phone. Let's get this working again.

What model Motorola is it? Which messaging app are you using?

Had this same problem after the latest update. Only solution was to uninstall Gboard and reinstall. But install another keyboard and switch to that in your input settings first or it may be hard to search in the play store for Gboard!

I've also had the same problem. Using a Moto Z Play. Space bar moved to the numeric key board. Happened with the recent system update. Using native Android keyboard. Tried turning phone off. Also cleared all data cache. Nothing fixes this. Need help.

I know that you need your space bar, we're going to get it back Tim72. Thank you for your efforts in troubleshooting. Please try path Settings>Apps>3 dots on the right> Show System>Google keyboard>Storage>Clear data. This will clear the data and cache for just the Google keyboard. Let us know if you experience the same issue after resetting the keyboard.
