    Hi, thank you for your interest in Search. We have taken the decision to remove Search from Microsoft SwiftKey Keyboard. As of Microsoft SwiftKey 7.8.3, Search won't be available in Toolbar. We are sorry if this comes as disappointing news, we will instead focus our development efforts in other exciting areas of your keyboard.

    This is a really bad idea, the search function was excellent! Please rethink

    Could you please explain the decision for removing the web search feature?

    As an elective tool, it can't be about user experience.

    I will to go back to a previous version and won't be able to update until you bring this essential feature back.

    I think this is a very influential use of the update, updated only to find that the search function was removed, which makes me very inconvenient, at any time to search for anything can not use the search function through the toolbar.

    Why was it removed? Because I think that it was one of the best features that you had together with the translation feature. So are you going to remove that too?

    I'm straight up typing this on Gboard because that feature was the only thing keeping me on Swiftkey. I'm incredibly disappinted to see this go and I don't understand why it would be taken away without explanation.

    I would rather downgrade my SwiftKey to pre 7.8 version and block it from updates or better, consider other keyboards out there like Cheetah or GBoard.You should be careful making sudden changes to your product when it's already widely accepted..

    Hi Qaasim Muhammad Akorede, I've passed your feedback on to the team so that we can keep it in mind as we continue to improve Microsoft SwiftKey.

    I'll be glad if you can bring the search feature back. It was really useful. I am going to download an older version because of that single feature.
