Microsoft has released a fresh new update for the SwiftKey Beta app in the Google Play Store.
The company is rebranding the keyboard application as the ‘Microsoft SwiftKey Keyboard’ as is evident from the changelog in the store.
In the recent update (v126.96.36.199), the app has also added support for Emoji 12.0 (requires Android 10) which introduces a variety of new designs including flamingo, otter, guide dog, sloth, white heart, mixed skin tones when holding hands, and a gender inclusive couple.
Since the keyboard has a built-in emoji panel, you should be able to see the new emojis once you see the update on your device.
SwiftKey has a new name – we’re now Microsoft SwiftKey Keyboard. Don’t worry, it’s still the same keyboard you know and love 💕
