SwiftKey beta update brings support for Android Nougat emoji
One of the most popular Android keyboard applications, SwiftKey has just received a small update that brings a few important new features.
Although it's only the beta version of the app that got updated, we're confident a stable release will be available for download via Google Play very soon.
First of all, SwiftKey 6.4.1 beta two adds support for Android Nougat emoji, so those who own Nexus devices can start using them if they have the beta version installed. But that's not the only new feature included in the update.
According to SwiftKey developers, the beta version adds diverse emoji that you can use by long press and selecting the skin tone that you wish. Also, number, email and other predictions that contain “@” are turned back on.
Keep in mind that all previously learned number, email and @ predictions have been wiped, but can now be relearned. On top of that, the sync service has been fixed.
If you have a previous version of SwiftKey for Android beta, you should know that it may take up to 24 hours to this one to appear on your phone. As for the rest of you that don't use the beta, let's hope it won't take SwiftKey too long to bring these features and fixes to the stable version.
