OnePlus has announced users of its One smartphone will soon get an update that brings support for SwiftKey integration. The popular keyboard is already available for download for Android, debuting in the Play Store way back in 2010 when it was still in Beta. However, this update will see SwiftKey integrated into CyanogenMod 11S so users can switch from the regular keyboard to the SwiftKey keyboard at the touch of a button.
“We always look to improve user experience by working with partners who share our vision of great products and sensible innovation”, said Helen Li, head of product at OnePlus. “SwiftKey improves the keyboard experience for our global user base with support for 81 languages”.
What’s not clear is if OnePlus plans to sign a similar agreement for its own custom Lollipop ROM, OxygenOS (the company plans to reveal more information about this custom software next week), or if this new SwiftKey integration will be featured in the new CyanogenMod Lollipop build for the OnePlus One.
OnePlus hasn’t given an exact release date for the SwiftKey update.
