I've no idea if this bug is one the DS team can do anything about, but there's nothing to lose by posting here!
Ever since the recent 2.17.2 update, I cannot type in game chat. Google keyboard crashes quite literally every 2nd word I attempt to type, and will not reopen for a good 30 seconds.
I would put this down to a gboard or device issue, other than the fact it works perfectly in anything other than DS, and it only occurs since the last update.
It's extremely frustrating so if it is indeed caused by DS then please take a look?!
