Typing moondot

I'm really struggling to type the moondot modifier on my phone. I'm using the gboard ABC=>हिंदी setting and can get the dot but not moondot. This means I can only get हूं which is marked wrong in sentences like मैं पीता हूं।

I've tried the full Hindi keyboard but still can't find a way to do it. Can anyone help?

I don't think there is a way for you to get the moondot symbol on the Gboard ABC=>हिंदी keyboard which is weird because the ABC=>हिंदी keyboard on the Google input tools browser extension usually gives the correct spellings.

On the Gboard full Hindi keyboard, you can longpress the long press the ं key to get ँ.


I wonder what kind of phone you have. I have an iPhone with a Hindi keyboard installed and I can easily type ::: हिंदी or हूँ. Those two come up automatically for me. I don’t have to do anything special. For this keyboard, I type in Roman and it changes into Devanagani.

हूँ =. I also have a keyboard that is just in Devanagani and I had to type 3 keys to get hoon/हूँ. I’m not used to the Devanagani only keyboard so I took a few seconds but it wasn’t difficult.
