SwiftKey for Android gets an update, adds in new features to Hub

If you’re currently using SwiftKey on your Android device, you might want to head over to the Google Play Store and check for updates. The Microsoft-owned SwiftKey team has released an update for their app, bringing in several new features to the SwiftKey Hub.

Overall, the new update delivers a refreshed SwiftKey Hub, which is aimed at making it easier than ever to type out your most commonly used phrases. New features in the SwiftKey Hub include Clipboard, Shortcuts, and Incognito. For the complete details on these features, please check out the official description below.

  • With Clipboard you can save phrases then copy and paste them into whatever you’re writing, without having to type it again
  • Shortcuts lets you create a – wait for it – shortcut to any phrase you’ve saved on the Clipboard. For example, instead of typing out your address you could save it to your Clipboard and create the Shortcut “Home1”, which, when typed, expands to your address – saving you time and making typing easier.
  • Incognito mode gives you even more control over SwiftKey Keyboard and the words and phrases that it learns.  To enable Incognito mode, swipe right on the hamburger menu in the prediction bar – you’ll notice that your keyboard’s theme changes when you’re in Incognito mode. It will only turn off and revert to your chosen theme when you go back into the SwiftKey Hub and tap the ‘Incognito mode’ button again.

Even if you’re not currently using the SwiftKey app, we have done you a favor and included a download link below. Once you’re up and running with the new update or the app, please do let us know what you think by dropping us a comment below!
