Latest SwiftKey update lets you remove the Bing search button [APK Download]

Much like Gboard and its Google Search integration, Microsoft-owned SwiftKey added Bing as a search feature in its last big release, which we're sure wasn't a popular addition.

Entering text on touchscreen devices used to feel like quite the chore, but modern on-screen keyboard software has gone a long way towards making us forget about hardware keyboards.

SwiftKey kills off its redundant Swiftmoji app 😵

In 2016, SwiftKey released Swiftmoji, a new keyboard with predictive emoji, to make it faster to insert the colorful little characters into your messages and status updates. Swiftmoji worked essentially the same way SwiftKey's main keyboard did, with autocorrect and predictive typing, but with the distinction that it featured an additional bar at the top of the keyboard to display emoji suggestions based on context. Two years later, SwiftKey is finally shutting down Swiftmoji, as the app is now redundant and most of the functionality has already been rolled into the standard keyboard.

Now users can look for two new items: a set of emoticons from Skype and a Halo sticker pack.
