Microsoft corporation had purchased Swiftkey but today releases a new Android Keyboard of its own. Its called Hub Keyboard and it provides an easy access to Office files, local clipboard, contacts, and also translation tool.
While the app runs, there is usually this visible bar that remains throughout the keyboard life system and upon tap on it’s icons will open up information elsewhere on your phone without having to minimize to another application. An example would be to tap in the contact button allows for ease of searching for a friend and then have their name and phone number automatically inserted to the document being created. The translation. button allows for ease of translating languages from one to another with ease and its quicker.
This way, the Microsoft Hub Keyboard comes from Microsoft’s Garage group which usually make experimental applications with the aims of creating a better and newer ideas.
On the other way round for the Keyboard, it restricts autocomplete suggestion while the quick access button are up for example and the button is only useful for those who store files with office 365. Like this, Microsoft had thought that the quick access options could be at the Hub Keyboard overtime and one can be able to turn off the ones that aren’t as useful.
Microsoft had been contributing applications to the Google play store over years and KGS Office quite, a home screen launcher, and popular mean and calendar apps. Keyboard might be an addition though as Microsoft hopes to make it’s releases quiet better than it should be.
Microsoft also released an Android app called Sprightly this week, which is meant to let businesses quickly put together fliers.
But it seems Microsoft isn’t yet planning to extend the App to iOS although there is an iPhone Keyboard by Microsoft too but not Hub Keyboard
