How do I access and navigate the new Indian language layouts?

SwiftKey supports smart layouts for Hindi, Tamil, Gujarati, Marathi and Nepali languages. 

How to access:

If you have newly installed SwiftKey or downloaded one of these languages, then you will automatically be using the new layout. However, if you were previously using any of these languages, you will need to manually switch to the new layout if you wish to use it.

To do this please:

  1. Open SwiftKey app from your device
  2. Tap 'Languages'
  3. Tap the box underneath your downloaded language
  4. Select the new layout
