OnePlus: SwiftKey keyboard will be baked into the next CyanogenMod update for the OnePlus One

SwiftKey is surely one of the best-received third-party keyboards for Android, as it's contextual prediction feature and support for a large number of languages seem to be favored highly by a vast majority of Android fans. OnePlus, the manufacturer behind the so-called "flagship killer of 2014", seems to be perfectly aware of that. That's probably one of the main reasons why SwiftKey will come pre-installed in some of the future firmware updates for the OnePlus One.

That's right, OnePlus just announced the collaboration, stating that the keyboard will be baked right into CyanogenMod 11S (most probably in the upcoming CyanogenMod 12 update, too). Users of the OnePlus handset will be able to select SwiftKey as their default keyboard without having to download it from the Play Store. As a reminder, the default keyboard of CyanogenMod 11S that currently powers the OnePlus is the stock AOSP keyboard. The update with the new keyboard will arrive later this month.

Just last year, SwiftKey broke the price tag chains and became a free-to-download-and-use app, but with certain in-app purchases - a handful of various keyboard themes.

OnePlus also hinted that something "pretty sweet" is poised to come very soon - we can't say if the start-up had the upcoming OxygenOS in mind or something else. OnePlus 2, anyone?
