SwiftKey is getting an update today, and it'll make you feel very 😀 if you're into emoji. And really, who isn't these days? Fans of full Marshmallow support or multiple currency options will also experience a distinct 😍 sensation. Then there are all the small tweaks and bug fixes, which are pretty 😐.
Excessive emoji aside, here's the changelog for the latest SwiftKey update.
- Support for new emoji (for devices on Android 6.0.1)
- Support for Android Marshmallow
- You can now input currency for: Russia, Argentina, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Slovakia, Germany, Canada & Australia
- Improvements to typing behaviour when backspacing
- Autospace now works with Japanese enabled
- Evernote personalization won’t cause repeated listing in settings
- We no longer autocorrect if you start typing a URL at the start of a message or capitalise the first “w”
The new emoji are only for those devices running Android 6.0.1, which is when Google added them in response to taco-based complaints. The new emoji will pop up in a preview pane when you open the emoji input on a compatible device. Everyone else will see the same old emoji.
All Marshmallow users will get full support for backup and permissions in 6.0 and higher. SwiftKey also gains the option to input currency from countries like Russia, Argentina, and so on. The new version is live in the Play Store for everyone; go and get it.
