    Hello,

    I think the reason why languages like Japanese or Chinese isn't available on iOS because, we don't have many active users on iOS, plus there's really small number of users who requires Japanese and Chinese.

    Native speaker using iOS keyboard, and it's better built for them. That's the feedback I received.

    Meanwhile, you can use SwiftKey for Russian and English and use Japanese from iOS keyboard. Then change the emoji key to language switch key in SwiftKey settings. So that you can switch languages seamlessly.

    I'm actually hoping for the same thing. I do understand that using the Japanese iOS keyboard would work, however switching between two different keyboards and input method feels awkward. I would really love Japanese support for iOS SwiftKey.

    Especially if Android already has this feature.

    My friends and I are coming from Hong Kong, and we all do wish to have Chinese input supported by the SwiftKey. I am not sure how your team find out "there's really small number of users who requires Japanese and Chinese", but I can tell you many people feel disappointed when they find out the iOS version of SwiftKey does not support Chinese and Japanese after they migrate from Android to iOS.
