- We’ve added a new language:

- Change the default percent symbol in Arabic
- Fixed a crash for Arabic 123 layout when accessing numbers

So, the radical changes to the way resizing the SwiftKey keyboard works between the current up-to-date stable version versus the beta can easily be spotted right away. From the included screenshots you can see that in the latest beta you can fine-tune the keyboard's height, width as well as its placement, everywhere but in the bottom half of the screen. Perhaps, if you are a leftie, you can set it as you like for the most comfortable typing experience ever. Hopefully, this one comes out to the stable release ASAP, and maybe in Gboard too.
All of the aforementioned settings can be adjusted by opening up the SwiftKey Beta app from your app drawer, entering the 'Typing' section and choosing the 'Resize' option....
SwiftKey is one of Android's best keyboard apps all around and the go to one for many users. It has a separate beta published on the Play Store and there is a new update released for it.

SwiftKey Beta version 18.104.22.168 is up with customizable search option in the toolbar and fixes for Arabic layouts
Being one of the most popular keyboards on Android, here is a new beta update for SwiftKey, which enables some extra personalizations and fixes a couple of issues. Here is the brief changelog that comes with v22.214.171.124:
The search option inside the keyboard is a great thing to have, but in the previous version it was taking too much space from the toolbar, where instead they could have crammed in other shortcuts. This update brings a solution by transforming the search bar into a search icon, which can also be moved around by hitting the three-dot button in the far right side of the toolbar to enter the so-called "Customizer"....
The Swiftkey app, now part of the large collection of Microsoft apps, is one of the most preferred keyboards among Android users due to the great typing experience it offers and its unmatched prediction capabilities. In version 126.96.36.199 of Swiftkey Beta lands a deeper integration with MS services, with Bing as a search engine that is part of the keyboard and Edge as a browser for showing search results, and a lot more. This feature is similar to how you can search on Google with Gboard, but, of course, with some small differences after all.
Introducing Search, the fastest way to find and share anything from Bing without leaving SwiftKey. Quickly capture, crop and send a screenshot or share the URL.

If you don't know, SwiftKey was acquired by Microsoft at the beginning of 2016 and they have started integrating their services into the app. As a result of this acquisition, now we get Microsoft Translator support inside the keyboard. It is indeed very similar to Google Translate in Gboard and looks like SwiftKey is actually too late to the party. If you want, you can enable this feature by tapping on the '+' sign at the top row of the keyboard and selecting the Microsoft Translator icon, which has a letter 'a', a strange sign and two arrows....
