Microsoft has completed the acquisition of SwiftKey whose keyboard and SDK powers more than 300 million Android and iOS devices. Microsoft will continue to develop SwiftKey’s market-leading keyboard apps for Android and iOS. They will also explore scenarios for the integration of the core technology across the Microsoft product and services portfolio. Microsoft will share more about how they will integrate SwiftKey technology with their Guinness World Record Word Flow technology for Windows in the coming months.
Microsoft says on the acquisition:
SwiftKey’s technology aligns with our vision for more personal computing experiences
- that anticipate our needs versus responding to our commands
- directly supports our ambition to reinvent productivity by leveraging the intelligent cloud.
“We believe that together we can achieve orders of magnitude greater scale than either of us could have achieved independently.”
