This Microsoft owned keyboard is making waves with new feature and performance updates.

Swiftkey, the Microsoft owned keyboard has been updated with some noticeable changes. The app is now 20% faster then its closest competitor and the lag has been reduced by more than 50%

As per Swiftkey, the developers have made the following improvements:

  • SwiftKey is on average 20% faster loading than our closest competitor across a range of devices*,and as much as twice as fast on first load after a phone restart 
  • SwiftKey has the smallest appinstall size on fresh install– without sacrificing features or functionality – on some devices this is as much as half the size 
  • Internal testing shows improved frame rendering, reducing lag by over 50%, even on older phones 

* SwiftKey 7.1.7, GBoard 7.6.13, Baidu 8.2.1, TouchPal 6.9.1 were fresh installed on the Alcatel 1T, ZTE Tempo X, Nokia One, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, Huawei Y7 Prime, and Moto G4. Tests were repeated 100 times and averaged across devices.
