Problem with long button press for numeric characters0 votes 5 commentsI've configured my long button press time to 200 ms. This works well, except on the q and the p key. Currently I use the numeric characters mostly from the long press feature on the top row. But the long press time on q and p seems to need holding the button about a second. Any idea why?
Search Tab Answered6 votes 11 commentsThere used to be a search icon on the top of the keyboard that'd take you to Google. Was that removed in the recent update? Or did I accidentally toggle it off? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Bug: Must not auto-capitalize in Georgian0 votes 1 comment
Starting with Android 10, SwiftKey does auto-capitalization for Georgian language.
The problem is, Georgian does NOT have capital letters, so SwiftKey puts some weird Mtavruli script letters in their place, making the letters appear very weird when the text is sent to other systems.
To reproduce: Enable "Auto capitalize" feature in SwiftKey on Android 10. Type and send Georgian text in a facebook message to someone. Open that message on a Windows 7 computer - you will see a square as the first letter. Opening it on some other systems also exposes the problem - the first letters just look weird (e.g. on openSUSE Linux).
I would disable "Auto capitalize", but it's a global option for all languages and I still want it in English.
P.S. Gboard also had this problem, but they fixed it very soon after Android 10 release.

SwiftKey in Verizon support chat-1 votes 3 commentsWhenever im in chat with Verizon support, I have a horrible experience with SwiftKey. It is so bad, that I switch to gboard. I cannot swipe, input is not accurate, no prediction.
Screen goes dark whenever I start typing0 votes 1 commentI don't know if this is because of an update or because of my new phone, but my screen started going dark whenever I start typing with Microaoft Swiftkey. It didn't use to do this before and it's driving me NUTS. I CAN'T SEE A THING. If they're going to implement this feature, at least give the users an option to switch it off!!!! I've been having such a hard time typing and I'm this close to just uninstalling it altogether!!!!!

MS Clipboard Cloud Sync EPIC FAIL Answered0 votes 1 comment
I'm a senior IT systems engineer with MS creds. I just spent nearly three hours trying to get windows to sync my clipboard to/from my "ANDROID" device. Dont waste your time unless you have a Samsung (or win10 device).
But there's clear instructions... even MS support clearly indicating "Android". Just configure Windows clipboard sync, then configure "Your Phone", which then sends a link to your android for the app "Your Phone Companion" to complete the link. That was handy. Only when it's all setup and I'm in the app and see the clipboard sync feature missing that i dig into some MS support forums, follow their clear "Android" instructions, which for some reason takes me to Samsung support. Oh they have a unique app which works.
But then I discovered lots of articles and forum posts up to 3 years old talking about how MS Swiftkey is going to integrate this. Perfect, of course, how easy, surely by now... just wipe my old Swiftkey account and sign in with a new MS one, reconfigure everything and voila...nope. Oh turns it on MS Swiftkey BETA. Ok ok...install, configure... oh no, BETA just removes the ability to specify a search engine and forces you to use Bing. Quality feature.
Oh there's an API that tweaks Swiftkey for this feature (and apparently many more amazing things).... step 1: root your phone....
ive configured my PC settings, the "Your Phone" app, the "Your Phone Companion" app, Reinstalled swiftkey, installed and configured Swiftkey Beta. For NOTHING. And anybody who gets wind of this feature for their "ANDROID" is going to google it (because Bing), assume it works, and waist hours. Absolutely unacceptable.
3 hours of troubleshooting, 30 minutes of writing this ticket, you owe me $437.50 plus tax. Where should I send my bill?

Bugs with translator0 votes 1 comment
I tried reporting this before, but it doesn't get fixed. Very frustrating...
1. The translator will sometimes just cut a translation in the middle, or ignore a word. This seems to happen when emojis are included in the text to be translated. In that case the fix is easy, just remove the emojis before translating...
2. Translator doesn't work if you try to translate a message that has already been translated. To reproduce: In WhatsApp for instance, copy one message, and translate. Close the translation. Copy the message again and translate, this time it doesn't translate.

Handwriting Text Msg Note 20 Ultra Answered0 votes 2 commentsI owned a Note 3 & Note 8 while exclusively using SwiftKey as my keyboard. I had no issues using my S Pen to write text messages. All I had to do was hover over the text input bar and a small circle with the letter "T" in it would appear. Tapping on it would switch the keyboard to a blank section to write in. WHY IS THIS FEATURE GONE??? 😡 Why is your support team telling other users it's not a feature? It was there!!! I want to know why it was removed? I've been using SwiftKey for YEARS and this has seriously put my loyalty in jeopardy!!!
Still having problems with voice-to-text Answered-1 votes 1 comment
My initial post about this got marked as "answered" without the issue being resolved, so I'd like to try to ask again. I very regularly use the voice-to-text feature in Swiftkey, almost as much as the keyboard itself. About a week and a half ago, one of the main features I use seems to have disappeared. There was a functionality when using the voice-to-text where you could tap on a word produced by the voice-to-text an it would pop up a small list of other things that word may have been. This was extremely useful since it made it easy to correct mistakes. Now that feature seems to no longer be available. Does anyone know of a way to get this feature back? It's a big enough deal to me that if it's gone for good I'm not sure Swiftkey is for me anymore. Thanks!
Please update Cantonese Jyutping Input for Android Answered0 votes 1 comment
I think Swiftkey is a great keyboard on Android but it is lagging far away behind its main competitor Gboard when it comes to Chinese Cantonese Jyutping Input Method. After testing the keyboard for about a week, here is my observations :
1) It doesn't memorize new words.
2) While typing a sentence some very basic words won't appear on the "word suggestions". Simply put it's like the predictive text isn't working are isn't working consistently.
3) I also realize that a lots of characters are missing
I am using Swiftkey for Android and I have decided to use another keyboard for the moment since I just can't use the Cantonese Input on Swiftkey.
Is there a chance that the team behind update the keyboard fixing all these issues? I really enjoy using Swiftkey in general. Thank you

Request to add Iranian Azerbaijani Turkish language (known as: تۆرکجه) Answered1 vote 3 comments
First of all, let me say that swiftkey is a great keyboard.👌
I ask the swiftkey agents to add "Iranian Azerbaijani Turkish language" to the keyboard. (also known as "آذربایجان تۆرکجهسی" or "تۆرکجه")🤍
This language has at least 22 million speakers in Iran and also it has other speakers outside of Iran.
(This language is on the Google keyboard, We would be very happy if you add this language to the swiftkey program.)
Thanks a lot 🙏🌹
IMPORTANT KEYBOARD FEATURES MISSING Answered0 votes 1 comment
The following important keyboard features are missing or can not be controlled at all.
- Auto Space after Punctuation
- Spell Checker without Auto Correct enabled
- Writing Java Code is a nightmare because bit automatically changes symbols and spacing.
- The symbols Keyboard is absolutely disgusting 🤢 it doesn't follow regular qwerty standards.
- Important Symbols for writing are missing, like Dot Points for lists. hence the >(-) symbol
▪️ I'm an Emoji Dot Point
▪️ The accented characters only show 1 alternate characters
▪️ The AUTO SPELLING CORRECTION can not work out the 1 letter misspelt in a word could be a similar word, it's the basics of a mobile keyboard.
- The "System Spell Checker" option in Android 10 is not available until installing Gboard
- Users must Install Gboard and Disable it to utilise this application properly, on mu Huawei P30 Pro, I have no Gboard installed by default making it impossible to use the Android System Spell Checker in conjunction with Swift.
- The clipboard manager has no option for how long it should store clips, it just deletes them after you copy 4 or 5 things to the clipboard.
- Emoji Search is missing, something in nearly every keyboard on Android has available.
- The Emoji Screen is very old from Android 2.3 days, making selection very difficult and time consuming.
- The keyboard has Incognito Mode, something that scares users when it should be called " Low Telemetry Mode"

Voice-to-text has gotten worse suddenly Answered2 votes 16 comments
It seems like in the last few days my voice-to-text feature has gotten significantly worse. I don't know if this is a Swiftkey thing or a Google thing, but it started happening a few days ago after my phone installed an update and updated a bunch of apps at the same time. The interface looks a bit different, and there are a few significant changes:
- The timeout when I stop talking has drastically decreased, to the point where if I hesitate even a tiny bit between words it stops listening.
- The guesses it makes are often way off, where before they were very reliable
- There was previously a feature where I could tap on a predicted word, and it would bring up a list of other guesses for the word, which was extremely useful when it got something wrong, but it doesn't appear to do that anymore.
- Previously I could hit backspace to delete the last word and it would stay in listening mode, now hitting backspace makes it stop listening.
I use the voice-to-text a ton, so if it's really this broken now it's sort of a dealbreaker for me with Swiftkey, which would be a bummer since I've really liked it up until now. Has anyone else experienced this change recently and found a way to fix it? For reference, I have a Samsung Galaxy s10 with fully updated OS and app. Thanks!
