SwiftKey Update Adds Ability to Instantly Share Your Location

SwiftKey, the Microsoft keyboard alternative for Android, has a new minor update rolling out that brings the ability to instantly share your location when using the keyboard.  The update, version 7.0.1.21 for those keeping score at home, is rolling out now in the Play Store.

Once you have this new version installed on your phone, you will have the ability to share your location while using the keyboard.  Sharing your location will share the current address of your location with whomever you are texting messaging while using the keyboard.

Obviously for this to work, SwiftKey will have to have location access permissions enabled.  This is a feature that had been teased by the team at Microsoft behind the keyboard back in November of last year and it follows up on major update last month.  That update brought a huge number of changes including a new toolbar and the ability to make your own stickers to use in the app.  Language support within the app has also greatly expanded over the course of the past year.

If you have SwiftKey installed, you should get the OTA update over the course of the next few days.  If you want to download it and give it a try, it is a free download in the Play Store.
