SwiftKey for Android Gets a Redesign, New Themes

Microsoft today announced a major update to SwiftKey Keyboard for Android, which provides a new look and feel and three new default themes.

Here’s what’s new.

SwiftKey Hub redesign. The Hub is where you access all of your SwiftKey settings and options, and it’s accessible via the menu key on the keyboard.

New themes. There are three new default themes: light, dark and high contrast.

New emoji. SwiftKey now supports “the latest emoji,” so if that’s your thing, you’re all set.

New languages. SwiftKey now supports six new language models, too: Arabic (Levant), Garifuna, Mongolian (Traditional), Sassarese, Tigrinya, and Zazaki, bringing the total count to over 200.

You can find SwiftKey for Android—it’s free—on the Google Play Store.
