[HOW TO] Install Android Lollipop keyboard step by step guide with video tutorial

Recently Android Lollipop has been unveiled with the latest Motorola Google Nexus 6 device.
And the developer preview LPX13D is also unveiled recently.
The Android Lollipop Keyboard version 4.0 has been extracted from the same developer preview and re-built by XDA user Shaftamle.
This should work on Android 4.0 and later versions.

To get started first of all you have to download the Android lollipop keyboard over here:

I have divided the installation into three parts as following:
– Installing and setting up the Lollipop keyboard
– Customizing to get the new look

Installing and setting up the Lollipop keyboard:

Hope you have downloaded the keyboard apk file.

Browse the apk file where you have kept and click on that file to start the installation.
You will get a notification saying App Installed and then click on open to get started.

Customizing the keyboard layout:

This step is really not required to work with the latest installed keyboard but if you want the Lollipop kyboard look then you should proceed for this.

Go to Settings > Language & input
You will see here the Lollipop keyboard is already enabled and set as the default keyboard.

Select the settings beside the Lollipop keyboard as shown in the below image.
