Windows Phone 8 keyboard includes a new Type Ahead feature


It seems Joe Belfiore was trying to slip a new Windows Phone 8 feature past right under our noses.

Leon Zandman noticed during Joe’s presentation that the keyboard appeared to be not only trying to complete his word, but also anticipating the next word in the sentence.

In the screen shots above the keyboard is suggesting the word screenshot after Joe typed First ever, even before he pressed S. In the end Joe pressed P for public, and the word completion kicked in.

See a video of the feature after the break.

Starting at the 9:56 min mark.

Thanks Leon for the tip. (I guess I should lift that ban now…)
