    Agree with the others on wanting to select Google as the search engine. (Leverage search history, familiarity with results, etc.)

    Thanks.

    Actually, I hate the Bing search engine! I would prefer Google! Either way, for me it's a useless feature.

    Only issue I have is I would have preferred Google Search... Why not add an option to switch between search engines ❓🤔

    Just show bing logo instead of entire search box. Make english and bangla phonetic separate, otherwise it's massy. By the way bing search is very bad even I ask very simple question from SwiftKey keyboard. Example: height of everest?

    It's completely unacceptable to add features which will lead to more possibilities for spying people. If search engine has access to search string it can be stored in the search engine database. There are too many doubts about privacy matters to allow Microsoft for apparently reasonable attempt to grab everything you type. I many times had to go through SwiftKey proposed words just to delete them as they were too close to my passwords...

    Better they give us some options removed in the last 2.5 years, like personal setup for delay before  long tap change character to the alternate character.

    Or they could allow directly browse and edit personal dictionary.

    Or they could allow to change set of characters automatically shifted to the left if there's a blank (space), like it is done with ')', dot, coma, but not with semicolon, colon, closing quotation marks and some other characters.

    Or they could add algorithms for adaptation of keys' touch sensitive zones - for some keys I always make same mistakes because my finger touches location off-center  of the key and then I immediately correct entered character. This could be used by keyboard software to learn where are my "private key centers" and errors rate would be lowered.

    There are so many useful things, but search isn't one of them.

    I prefer DuckDuckGo. For privacy and security issues.

    If this eventually would be able to be set to use duckduckgo I'd use it, otherwise I'd need a way to disable it. ddg's bang system works really well for what this would be used for, and allows searching pretty much any other search engine users may request.

    Mine has a toggle, not sure if it was just added or if these other comments are just trolls. Mine was hidden by default, didn't realize there was a search bar until I clicked on the + at upper-left to see what it was.

    I don't find it useful, so which search engine will be used, doesn't matter to me. But I do feel that a choice is important to add, for those who want to use it.

    Google and Microsoft are both always force-packaging their products, which I hate. I think they get too caught up in brand competition and forget about being consumer-oriented and allowing customers to choose.

    I don't expect the good people at swiftkey to read my comment but I'll give my thoughts just the same. Swiftkey is by far the best keyboard available and I keep going back to it for that very reason. However I have to agree with everyone else on some points. Search takes up to much space. These are phone screen keep in mind and space is highly valuable. Please make the search an option that we can remove if we so choose. Filling your keyboard with features no one will use is a great strategy to push people off your keyboard and towards the competition. We don't like feeling like a feature is being forced on us. As for its size. Take out the search field and the word search. Shrink it only to the magnifying glass. Nothing more. We know that icon means search and this minimizes the space it takes up for features that people use often. We need the option to choose our search engine. Most prefer Google. Stick with Bing and the feature won't get used much and then why even have it? It's fine to have Bing as the default. Most won't care. You'll still get most people using Bing. But those of us who prefer Google need the option. As of current its big and I think I can safely assume that most of us here would prefer the Google search engine. So make Bing the default with the option to choose Google in the settings. Please remember that we are the reason that swiftkey is successful. If you ignore the preferences of your customers then they will be pushed away. And for the record, back in the day, I was among those who paid for the full version because swiftkey is that good. Been using it for many many years so please don't push us out with forced options we don't need or want. Overall I like the general implementation though. Good work. 😊

    Theres nothing troll here. You clicked + to open the keyboard bar. And is there where we are talking about the search box be occupying space. Toggle the bar is not a solution because we want or need to use that bar.

    I am using SwiftKey Beta (7.1.8.27) and the search bar is not appearing in the toolbar. I am using Xperia C5 ultra running on 6.0.

    I appreciate the new search function, but there's not much point in adding it if you're only going to limit it to your own search engine. The toolbar is already pretty cramped up as it is, and considering the amount of space that the search bar takes up (and the fact that there are already icons like the settings and themes that you can't remove, to which I highly doubt people even use to change their preferences and themes that often), it really isn't worth adding it to your toolbar.

    Edit: I'm glad you listened to our feedback! With the recent updates, the new search bar is so much better as it takes up way less space and you can change the search engine to Google.

    As other have suggested in this thread I can't understand why this has not been implemented as other tools available on the bar:
    * optional
    * accessed via a single one character wide icon button

    There's absolutely no valid reason for occupying so much space, especially since it's expands as soon its pressed.

    I love this little keyboard but this new feature honestly makes me think twice if I should go to Google instead. Please remove it. As you can see it a very disliked add-on

    I have used SwiftKey from the beginning and bought it when you could. I have seen lots of useful things added that I use and appreciate. The bing search bar is not one of those things. If its not gone I will be going to g board. Simple.

    I, too, paid for SwiftKey back in the day, still happy I did. I love the ability to search from my keyboard. On a large screen like the Note 9, I still have 5 icons available. On smaller screens I can understand how it can take up the entire bar. I'm sure that it won't be long before that bar turns into just a magnifying glass, with the ability to change engines, option to leave it a bar or icon, disable it altogether... They're still listening and making changes for the better.

     

    Meant to add that I'm a Google user, as well.

    Hello all,

    Ryan from SwiftKey here. I just wanted to let everyone know we are listening to feedback. One thing to note, if anyone does not know, we are a Microsoft Company now. Which explains why we have been adding more Microsoft related services. 

    Some of the key points we are seeing and listening to are:

    • The icon is too big/takes up too much space
    • An option to remove it all together
    • Pick a different Search engine

    All of this feedback will be taken into account as this feature continues it's development

    Best,

    Ryan

    Thanks for the feedback Ryan. It's all about choices. Especially with the direct input to our devices. Let's hope MS takes note.

    Considering all the other toolbar shortcuts are customisable, it seems you went out of your way to make this one not. Please at least make it so I can move it elsewhere.

    It's pretty obvious that MS owns the product since they're adding bloat like searching from the keyboard. And NOBODY uses Bing.  Get real.

    Needs to be optional. Don't want it, will never use it, and it pushed things I do use off screen.
