The SwiftKey team at Microsoft has rolled out another new update to the SwiftKey for Android app. The update, version 188.8.131.52 for those keeping score at home, brings support for five new languages, Alsatian, Fongbe, Norman, Urdu (English), and Warlpiri, as well as several bug fixes to the keyboard alternative for Android phones.
With the addition of Alsatian, Fongbe, Norman, Urdu (English), and Warlpiri, SwiftKey for Android now supports well over 200 languages natively, making it one of the most language diverse apps in the Google Play Store.
In addition to the new languages, there are also a handful of bug fixes in this update to SwiftKey. These include:
- Punctuation slider should no longer trigger the period when sliding
- Keyboard won’t lock up when trying to tag someone in Instagram comments
- Layout fixed when using Dvorak + split + undock
If you are looking for a keyboard alternative to GBoard or other keyboards, take a look at SwiftKey. It has been around for a long time and was one of the first to support swipe typing. Although the company is now owned by Microsoft, they still churn out regular updates and bring a lot of customization and personalization to the keyboard to make it your own on your phone. The app is free in the Play Store.
