New OnePlus One Update Will Add Top-Selling SwiftKey Keyboard
SwiftKey is among the most popular third-party keyboard apps on Android. If you are a proud owner of a OnePlus One phone then you should know that OnePlus and SwiftKey have collaborated, to integrate the popular keyboard into CyanogenMod 11S.
You will no longer have to manually download the app, as the option of switching to Swiftkey or remaining with the default keyboard will always be present.
The collaboration between OnePlus and SwiftKey was revealed in a post on the official OnePlus blog. On this occasion, Head of Product Helen Li stated:
“We always look to improve user experience by working with partners who share our vision of great products and sensible innovation. SwiftKey improves the keyboard experience for our global user base with support for 81 languages.”
SwiftKey is powered by an AI and is capable of understanding our language. It learns from users to accurately predict the next word they’ll use and make adjustments through autocorrect.
What’s more interesting is that SwiftKey allows you to type in not one but three languages at the same time. Once the update is installed, OnePlus One users can select SwiftKey from the Language and Input menu in their settings.
The app was already free to download from Google Play store, integrating it as an option is a neat feature but it’s not something that’ll win a lot of votes for OnePlus One.
Still the app will surely reach more users this way who can benefit from its easy typing features. SwiftKey’s Head of Distribution Eric Collins says:
“We want OnePlus customers to enjoy all the fun of faster, easier typing from a keyboard that learns from them. It’s our mission to make it easier for everyone to type and communicate on mobile, and we’re proud to partner with an industry disruptor to bring our innovative smart keyboard to more people around the world.”
OnePlus says that they’ll keep adding new feature to their devices to enhance user experience. More features are expected soon. As for the coming update, users can expect it to come out later this month.
