SwiftKey Beta Community Report 📲 Huawei P8, Android 6.0

SwiftKey - one of the most popular keyboard apps got a new beta update with version number 7.1.3.25, and a couple of new features in tow.

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. Then, you will be greeted with extra two rows where you can select the languages and input your desired text. With that said, there is also a new language added - Dungan, and support for native top row symbols for Tamil99 and Indic too.

Looks like Microsoft slowly trying to integrate its services into SwiftKey and vice versa. Let's see what else will come because we know that the keyboard app will come soon to Windows 10.
