Latest SwiftKey Update Brings Language Total to Over 200

SwiftKey, the powerful keyboard app that introduced Artificial Intelligence learning in a keyboard app, has a new update rolling out in the Play Store.  The update brings the normal set of behind-the-scenes updates and performance improvements but it also brings new languages.

In all, 7 new languages have been added to SwiftKey, bringing the total number of supported languages up to 205.  Here are those new languages.

  • Bislama
  • Limburgish
  • Lower Sorbian
  • Makhuwa
  • Nuosu
  • Silesian
  • Venetian

In addition to the new languages, transliteration support for Sinhala & Dhivehi has also been added in this update.

There are a few other improvements in this update to SwiftKey.  First, support for Chinese handwriting is now available in the app and second, GIFs will display in 3 columns now on larger screen devices.  This will make it a bit easier to find that GIF you want without so much swiping.

SwiftKey has one numerous awards since it was created in 2008.  In 2016, Microsoft bought the company behind the app for $250 million.

If you are looking for a solid performing keyboard alternative, this is one to consider.  It is free and like Gboard from Google, is available for both Android and iOS devices.  You can download it from the Play Store to try it out.
