Default keyboard theming

so why is it that when i use a theme, the android keyboard is themed correctly while the google keyboard isn't themed completely? is there a difference between the two keyboards?

Cause the themes are only designed to change the Android keyboard. Any other keyboard won't be affected by theme changes.

Simple as that. 👍

Both keyboards can be themed. All depends on what the theme supports.
So yes there's a difference between them.
