The SwiftKey Beta app updated this past week for all supported Android smartphones and tablets. This update brought the app up to Version 184.108.40.206 and added support for typing in Awadhi, East Frisian, Garhwali, Hmar and Saraiki. Several new languages were also added to search, bringing the total number of supported search languages up to 139.
Here’s the full release notes for this update:
- Emoji search is now available to 139 languages including Persian, Polish, Romanian, Thai and Turkish.
- You can now swipe on the delete key to select and delete text.
- You can now type in Awadhi, East Frisian, Garhwali, Hmar and Saraiki.
- We’ve added text context to Intelligent Nudge button. The design of the button changed from “Add task” to “Add [xxx] to To Do”. The Intelligent Nudge automatically detects a task and prompts users to add it to To Do.
SwiftKey Beta is used to test features and functionality before they’re rolled out to the general public with the regular SwiftKey app. All of the above changes made to the Beta app this week should find their way to the main SwiftKey app within a month or two.
The regular SwiftKey app also updated this week. This update simply added some under-the-hood improvements to increase overall functionality and brought the app up to Version 220.127.116.11.
