Hello everyone,
since upgrading to Android 11, the bottom right button that used to switch keyboards has been replaced by this:

Which is useless (tapping on it does nothing).
How to get the "switch keyboards" button back?
Or, alternatively, how to switch keyboards, considering that the notification has disappeared too?
Thank you!

No. I'm translating. It's in accessibility menu over the screen section.
Try to search Magnification.

Magnification is disabled.
Everything in the accessibility settings is disabled except a few apps which I gave permission to draw over other apps.

I'm italian too, if you want to write in italian that's OK for me :)
Like I said above, nothing is enabled in the accessibility menu :(

(non ho abilitato nulla nella sezione Accessibilità, tranne qualche app alla quale ho dovuto concedere il permesso di sovrapporsi alle altre, perché era necessario al loro funzionamento)

The button appeared after the upgrade to Android 11. I changed navigation mode to 3 buttons and it does nothing. The button disappeared only when setting gestures navigation, but I really don't like it (I lose too many shortcuts in many apps). I will try deleting data of the launchers, although I simply suspect this is a bug in Android 11 :(

Yes, I can change it from there, but it's very uncomfortable with many steps to be taken.
There used to be the "change keyboard" button in the buttons bar, and a notification to be clicked to change keyboards. Now there is nothing anymore.
How is this an improvement?
