How To Use VIA To Pair With Keychron Q Series Keyboard

Normally the VIA will pair up with the Keychron Q series keyboard automatically. But If your VIA doesn’t automatically pair up with your Keychron Q series keyboard, you need to follow these steps:

1. Reconnect your keyboard power cable. 

2. If VIA still doesn’t pair together after you reconnect the power cable, download and unzip the Keychron Q1 / Keychron Q2 / Keychron Q3, etc JSON file.

3. Unplug your keyboard from your computer.

4. Open VIA.
Step 1: Turn on "Show Design tab" on "SETTINGS" tab.

Step 2: Click the “DESIGN” section.
Step 3: Enable "Use V2 definitions (deprecated)" or disable "Use V3 definitions (via/next)". (Q0 Plus please skip this step.)

Step 4: Drag the JSON file to the tab and then click the "CONFIGURE" section to customize the keymap.

5. Replug your keyboard.

6. VIA should pair together with the Keychron Q1 / Q2 / Q3, etc now.
