Microsoft are adding SwiftKey to Windows 10 PC's and Windows 10 Mobile Phones in what seems like a long overdue addition! Android and iOS users have been able to take advantage of SwiftKey for a while now and it is coming to Windows 10.
What is SwiftKey?
SwiftKey gives you more accurate autocorrect and predictions by learning your writing style - including the words, phrases and emoji that matter to you. It is an intelligent keyboard that learns your writing style, giving you the option to swipe to type as opposed to having to constantly tap the keyboard. How often have you gone to type the word "Food" and it autocorrects to "Good"? It's a frustration of mine certainly but with SwiftKey this becomes a thing of the past! With SwiftKey it spots your misspellings, missed spaces, and missed letters to correct them for you which is a massive help.
Similar to iOS and Android, SwiftKey keyboard will provide autocorrections and predictions, and features like swiping will also be supported. At the moment, the keyboard will support a handful of languages like English (United States), English (United Kingdom), French (France), German (Germany), Italian (Italy), Spanish (Spain), Portuguese (Brazil), or Russian.
SwiftKey is also intelligent as it learns your writing style to suggest your next word. Enter a whole word with a single tap, instead of typing letter by letter making for a much more seamless and pain free typing experience that is not riddled with incorrect words, autocorrected mistakes and spelling errors.
Windows 10 Build 19692 delivers several improvements for Easy for Access, Game Bar, Game Mode, Windows Mixed reality, and Microsoft Edge adds new autoplay controls. Redstone 5 is expected to be finalised in September, so keep your eyes out for all of these improvements and additions, including SwiftKey!
