Update to BlackBerry Priv keyboard app brings swipe to type feature
An update to the BlackBerry Priv's keyboard app brings with it a feature that is commonly found on other Android QWERTYs, and is now available for the Priv. The update allows Priv users to swipe to type using both the virtual QWERTY on the phone's screen, and the physical QWERTY found under the display. To turn on swiping, simply follow the following steps.

Go to Settings > Language and Input > BlackBerry Keyboard Settings > Tap on Type by swiping. You can then toggle on the feature for either the virtual keyboard, the physical keyboard, or both.

Just a quick word to the wise. If you do enable the swiping feature for the physical QWERTY, you will no longer have the ability to swipe back to delete words. Also, you will no longer be able to swipe up on the touchscreen to see symbols.

Depending on your typing skills, you just might find using the swiping feature to be a faster and easier way to type. If you own the Priv and have never used swipe to type before, you just might want to give it a shot. If you don't like it, you can always toggle the feature off.
