    Please make it optional. Right now it takes too much space that could be used for other options. This is particularly bad with the compact one-handed keyboard.

    Hi Andy,

    You mean the size of the icon, yeah? The magnifying icon and the word "Search"?

    Hi,
    No, I mean having the option to disable it altogether for people that don't use it, and reclaim that space for more useful shortcuts.

    Give us an option to disable it. I'm literally on a phone made by another web search company, I don't like superfluous options.

    We should be able to choose what search engines we use. I'd like to use Google, way better.

    There should be an Option to disable the search box. I've never used it.

    Would it be really hard to share a gif from a search result? I searched images on bing and would love to be able to long click a gif in the result and import that.

    We should be able to choose which search engine we want to use and if we want to have the search bar. Thank you. Love SwiftKey. The best 😘😘

    I agree with mustafa, Google search is far better compared to Bing, and another one suggestion, can we expect something like smart search suggestion which Google implemented in its latest beta gboard.

    I also use Google to search as I have a Pixel 3 and never use Bing. Please make this button optional so I can remove it to allow move space for keyboard space.

    i understand your push to make us use bing, i shure respect that.. i don't like the engine personally.. just make it a button instead of the mini-search bar in the dashboard. i shure will not mind it if its only a single button.

    Yeah, no thanks.  Bing is useless and you're making Swiftkey useless by adding such bloat into it.  I've always been a huge Swiftkey supporter and have used it since it was first made available on Android, and even stuck with it since MS purchased it even though I know MS ruins most things.  But as soon as you added Bing search into it I was done; I've been using GBoard since.  

    You're ruining the keyboard.  It's a shame.

    Been away from the group due to a death in the family and work. Do I need to download a special version for this part if the testing. The search bar does not show up in SwiftkeyBeta version. Downloaded normal also not available https://photos.app.goo.gl/utJ4V7ce7VnoXSnRA

    It's good feature but we need Google engine to search and option to disable it.
    Thanks.

    I don't think I have the feature but would like it. Bing is a very good search engine.

    Why Bing? Google always gives the best search results, it is always better than Bing for sure. It would be nice to have a setting to change the search engine for those of us who prefer something different.

    I'd rather prefer a bigger need: tap microphone and dictate WITHOUT switching to the microphone dictation screen every time. I want to stay on the keyboard while dictating, as on Windows Phone. If this will be possible you can add a search box. Also, yes, make it optional as others are suggesting. I like the searchbox even though when I would need it, the keyboard is not open, because it is available only when you are already typing...

    I think it is a very handy feature. It could be improved by allowing the results to return an internally installed app like Gmail so you can go directly to it from search as does Google search. Also I've used it to get to a calculator from the keyboard. I like the copy url etc from search and from location and calendar. Very useful tools. The only improvement for your keyboard as far as I am concerned would be the themes which could use some 3d look improvements like in TouchPal. I think your word correction and next word suggestions are the best out there. I have been using swiftkey from the beginning and have tried all the others but there is no comparison.

    I like the idea to have an option to quickly search something through a keyboard... But. Bing... Oh Bing... Microsoft is promoting it, but everyone likes Google search engine. Please use Google instead. And ease the process. For example on this Bing thing, I can't even change settings to view uncensored things, even though everything is fine and I am 21 years old. I'd like Google search. Thanks.

    the search button/icon looks abit out of place. Will be good to just keep it to a simple search icon (similar to other icons on the panel) and expand it only when user clicks on it. Good to allow user to select their search engine.

    Having a snapshot at the search engine seems handy. Esp when you need to search and send info to another person.

    Good initiative. Thank you.

    Ami me gustaría que mejor agregarán una opción que si es muy útil, donde podamos ver todo lo que se a escrito en nuestro teclado contraseñas ingresadas mas que todo, contraseñas del wifi del cualquier aplicación. Si agregan eso sería maravilloso

    I'm with the "option to disable" people. Maybe on a phablet that's OK but on a small handset that just overloads the UI. There's already a barful of stuff I hardly ever use. And I don't see this having a wide use case. Stop over developing stuff, just make it work well and by all means add more languages, but we have enough features.

    I'm fine with the search bar and bing. Maybe add the ability to use other search engines for people that want that option. And one thing you can do to eliminate the bloat is integrate gif, location and anything like that into it.

    If you aren't going to make this optional why don't atleast alow us to move it?
    The bar is a mess since the bung search was added. The icons don't keep where I put they, as if an unnecessary large search box forcefully in the first place was not bad enough.

     

    [edit] 

    People, SwiftKey belongs to Microshame. Any request to use Google search is waste of time.
