Popular keyboard app SwiftKey now supports 150 languages

SwiftKey, the most popular keyboard application on Android thanks to its advanced and precise prediction algorithms, now supports 150 languages!

The 150 languages include several African languages among them Swahili, spoken widely in the East African region and parts of Central Africa. Others include Xhosa, Zulu, Hausa, Afrikaans, Igbo etc.

Swahili was added in an update back in 2015 when SwiftKey reached its previous milestone: support for 100 languages.

Google’s Gboard keyboard app reportedly supports up to 149 languages and dialects coming right behind the Microsoft-owned SwiftKey.
