Swift keyboard is a renowned third-party keyboard for Android and iOS devices. It was one of the first to debut the swipe typing to Android smartphones and to the bring the multi-language support entitled at a time. However it’s popularity was decreased ever since the tech Gaint Google induced these two features in its Keyboard app, dubbed as Gboard, formerly known as Google Keyboard.
However, the developers have merged their focus once again and decided to bring the SwiftKey to desktops and laptops running Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17692 codenamed Redstone 5 and after proper testing, we will see a stable version rolling out to the supported devices.
Swift keyboard for windows will house all the dominant features available on Android such as autocorrect and obviously the swipe typing.
Underpinning 7 languages ; English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian, and Russian.
However, at the moment, it’s quite sensible that to deploy the swipe typing to the mechanical keyboard in Desktops as well as laptops is bit impractical. It’s comprehensible that the goal here is in the direction to target Microsoft’s own Surface line of tablets and other Windows-based tablets too. To Recall, back in 2016, Microsoft acquired SwiftKey and persuaded its first substantial update of including the Gifs, stickers and a Mammoth of other features to the iOS and Android versions earlier this year.
Along with these, a plethora of other changes in build 17692 includes enhancement to Microsoft Edge, accessibility improvements, narrator improvements, and gaming-related changes.
