General News SwiftKey keyboard app updated with GIF support in India
Advertisement
#1

Joining the league a little late, SwiftKey has now introduced GIF support on its keyboard app in India. SwiftKey’s GIF provider will be Microsoft’s search engine, Bing. For those unaware, Microsoft had acquired SwiftKey last year. With the latest feature, SwiftKey users will be able to send GIFs on different apps using its keyboard. GIF support on SwiftKey is currently available on Android; iOS users should get the update soon.

SwiftKey had introduced GIF support first back in June this year. On the SwiftKey keyboard, you can use this feature by simply tapping on the GIF icon placed below, just next to the emoji icon. After selecting GIF, you can search through the different categories of preloaded GIFs like animals and cricketer. Since one cannot universally search for GIFs, the options are quite limited.


Commenting on the releasing GIF support, Sarab Singh, India Country Manager of SwiftKey says, “By introducing G support we are hoping to further enhance how our users communicate. Gifs’ ease of creation, their animation and iconic loop capabilities means they’re a great fit for capturing and conveying cultural memes as well as personal sentiment and reactions. They create innovative new ways for users to express themselves, which is why they’ve become so ubiquitous in online conversations.”

Gboard, Google’s keyboard app allows users to search GIFs from different platforms like Giphy, and Gifsoup. In addition to this, you can also make your own GIF on Gboard. Prior to Gboard and now SwiftKey, Fleksy keyboard was the first to introduce GIF support. GIFs gained much popularity this year with messaging app WhatsApp rolling out the feature on the app. WhatsApp allows users to send GIFs via Giphy without having to download any additional app. SwiftKey will possibly introduce more features for GIF on its app soon.

Previously, SwiftKey had introduced seven new Indian languages rounding off the total to 22. SwiftKey also supports transliteration for Indian languages like Bangla, Kannada, Malayalam, Maratha, Odia, Punjabi, and Telugu. Transliteration on SwiftKey allows users to type in both English and the support regional Indian languages.
