SwiftKey Keyboard for Android was updated yesterday with these new features: Clipboard, Shortcuts and Incognito mode. The updated SwiftKey Hub makes it easier than ever to type your most commonly used phrases.
With the new Clipboard features, users can save phrases then copy and paste them into whatever they are writing, without having to type it again.
The Shortcuts feature allows users to create a shortcut to any phrase they have 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.
As the name suggests, the new Incognito mode allows users to have more control over SwiftKey Keyboard and the words and phrases that it learns.
Maybe you’re shopping for an engagement ring and don’t want “big diamonds” to show up in your predictions when someone’s borrowing your phone – Incognito has your back!
To enable Incognito mode, swipe right on the hamburger menu in the prediction bar. You can access the updated SwiftKey Hub by tapping or sliding on the ‘hamburger’ menu on the far left of the prediction bar, the Hub gives quick access to the SwiftKey Store, Settings, and now Clipboard.
