It’s been more than two years since Microsoft announced the purchase of SwiftKey for a figure close to 250 million dollars. With this purchase, those of Redmond were made with the team behind one of the most famous keyboard applications and used in the mobile panorama , with a number of downloads that, in GOogle Play, exceeds 100 million.
Since then, the app has not received too many updates precisely, and this has led some users to abandon it in search of other keyboard apps. Now, however, Microsoft wants to end this streak through version 7.0 of SwiftKey, loaded with interesting news with which to attract a greater number of users, and keep those who already bet on this keyboard characterized by its excellent accuracy.
