    Yep, going to switch back to gboard. I love SwiftKey but the voice input is priority for me. This includes driving in the car, using it at work and just for personal use. I'm integrated with Google and just really sucks I can't use it...

    It's a shame that people have been commenting about this change for over a year and it hasn't been changed!  Though this keyboard is more responsive than others, the small little microphone button is making me want to go back to google keyboard.  I also dislike having to toggle for ? and !

    Guess customer input is not important to them.

    I've switched off swiftkey a few times because of the lack of a dedicated microphone key.... Keep coming back only because I can't stand how gboard's handles deleting multiple words (just speeds up the cursor, doesn't delete whole words like swiftkey). If gboard did that id switch for good. This feature becomes more and more essential as speech recognition gets better. Please implement

    I agree with all people before me. I recently triee Gboard and it has such a convenient voice input button! However, I constantly make typos on that board, and the pop-up for punctuation is not well made either. This, Swiftkey is much better - apart from that voice button! Please fix this?

    We need a dedicated voice input button!

    Swiftkey is fantastic in nearly every way but this. After installing I added the Japanese keyboard - Awesome swippity swipe of the space bar to change keysets! Created a new theme to make the alt characters stand out more than the faded grey default ones - Great. Next I looked up how to put the number row as its own set of keys instead of sharing with the qwerty line - No problem, Next was how to enable voice input. (I hadn't noticed the tiny little mic icon above the comma key) - It was already there! Finally I looked up how to make voice typing a standalone key and I have wound up here adding my voice to the chorus of people crying out for this feature.

    Come on SwiftKey! Make this keyboard perfect!

    Who cares anymore. I mean it's been over a year and now Gboard has gotten so much better than it was. So why use SwiftKey. They aren't in the game anymore and clearly don't listen to simple feedback that makes sense. If they had a good reason for not doing it but cared they'd at least address it but they either aren't listening or don't care. So I don't care. Trying once again to unsubscribe from this thread...

    I think if we start giving/changing SwiftKey's ratings to one star this might get the issue bumped in priority.

    Here's another vote for a dedicated voice input key. This comes from  someone who paid for your app all those years ago. Surely my $5 must count for something? ;-)

    Like others, I've tried switching to GBoard but it doesn't give suggestions in the Google app, and Swiftkey's suggestions are WAAY better, so I end up switching back. Then I get totally frustrated when I'm driving and want to switch to voice input. Please, please, please add this to your keyboard so I can delete GBoard off my phone once and for all.

    Agreed. I paid for Swiftkey years ago but last month finally switched to Google keyboard because of this. Wish developer would implement

    +1 for dedicated key. Or even better how about holding the spacebar to enable voice. Something easy to get to.

    I totally agree with everyone! Love SwiftKey. I voice text most often and need a better way to access it. I am requesting a dedicated voice button or the spacebar idea is good too.

    Yep.

    Came back to Swiftkey and like everything about what it is doing .....except that microphone button.
    The last time I was running Swiftkey....I dont remember that being an issue for me....but my usage has changed.

    It is now an App killer for me.  Big fingers.  Often texting while walking etc..  Sometimes gloved..  Sometimes driving a tractor...  Just too small a spot to have to hit 20 to 50 times a day. 

    I now (11/2018) dictate almost all short message responses.

    "Agree. Tell Bob." etc.

    I have to think they are working on this ...so will create an google alert on news for the keywords swiftkey and microphone.

    Maybe that will let me know when they address the issue.

    Yes, it is a big inconvenience.   Need a dedicated large key for voice input, and have it on the right side of the keyboard.

    If you want to take it further, implement custom keyboards,allowing users to build layouts from scratch.   That would be something nobody else has.

    SWIFTKEY ARE YOU LISTENING?
    Put the voice command to the space bar.
    It's been 2 years now...

    Completely agree. The mic button placement is the single biggest improvement I could suggest, and a very important one.

    Is there an other way to contact SwiftKey? Because i doubt they are reading their own forums.

    I found the support email. It's not on their own website. Or not that i could find on my mobile.

    android-support@swiftkey.com

    Send your requests there. Let's try to get a movement going.

    I changed my glowing 5 star review to a 1 star review on Google play because of this feature. If enough of us do that, they'll listen. Yes, I'm a passing user.

     

    Also, I'm an expert developer who would love to help you implement this, for free  if you need the help.

    Is everyone aware Microsoft bought SwiftKey? Extremely unlikely anything said here will be acted on.

    Let's hope something will change. Because this is too absurd for words. But maybe a change of boss would change things...

    Just switched to swift key to fix a moving cursor problem with the galaxy 10e as suggested in that forum.

    Going to try gboard or go back to Samsung keyboard and live with the problem just to have a microphone
