The Android keyboard gets searched through Bing

Microsoft continues to improve the SwiftKey with more and more features on both Android and iOS, while part of this project adds the intergration to its other services.

Android

The latest beta version of SwiftKey for Android, for example, comes with a search option that basically allows users to search the web using Bing directly from the keyboard.

That's just that you no longer have to "open" a browser or other application, as you can search for something online using Microsoft Bing directly from the Android keyboard. I really hope you can feel the irony here.

Microsoft does not allow users to change the search engine embedded in the SwiftKey, so while the function could be really useful, it is limited to Bing. No, there is currently no Google search and we do not know if the company is thinking of adding it to future updates.

Meanwhile, if you can not live without Google search, you might want to try out Gboard, which already comes with this feature and obviously supports its support Google.

The implementation of Microsoft's search support comes with some extra features, including support for quick downloading, cropping and sending a screenshot to Bing. You can also share the address URL directly from the keyboard.

The latest beta version for Android, the 7.1.7.30 version, also comes with a new Arabic layout and improvements for other languages, as Microsoft has made it a priority to add support in as many languages ​​as possible.

There is no reference to a similar update in iOS, but there is no doubt that Bing search integration will also be launched on the iPhone sooner or later.
