SwiftKey adds Instant Translation via Microsoft Translator. Microsoft acquires SwiftKey back in 2016. It is the most popular keyboard app which is available in the Google Play store right now. We tell it the most popular app because out of more than 2 Million rating, it got the 4.5-star mark. Its download figure is also quite insane, with a total of more than 100 Million downloads.
What makes this new update in Swiftkey interesting is the Instant Translation. With a total of 60 languages, you can translate and feed on one language to another on the go. It means when you type a text its translated version automatically feed into the place where you want to write. This makes this feature interesting because here you don’t have to switch between your translator and the keyboard app. Moreover, It also relieves you from copy and pastes task.
