SwiftKey gets stickers

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Back in 2016, Microsoft bought the popular SwiftKey keyboard for Android and iOS for $ 250 million. It’s still one of the most popular third-party keyboard on both platforms and today, the company is launching one of its biggest updates since the acquisition. With SwiftKey 7.0,  which is out now, the company is adding stickers — because who doesn’t like stickers?

Going forward, the service will offer a number of sticker packs, including some that can be edited and some that are exclusive to Microsoft, too.

That by itself wouldn’t be all that interesting, of course (and I can already see you rolling your eyes) but the real change here is under the hood and sets SwiftKey up for adding more interesting features soon. That’s because the stickers will live in the new SwiftKey toolbar, which will replace the current ‘hub,’ the menu where you can change your keyboard’s layout, size, etc. Right now, what you can find there are stickers and collections, that is, a library of stickers, images and other media you like to torture your friends with.

In the near future, SwiftKey will use this toolbar to enable a number of other new features like location sharing (though only in the U.S. and India for now) and calendar sharing.

“We remain committed to making regular typing as fast and easy as possible,” writes Chris Wolfe, Principal Product Manager at SwiftKey in today’s announcement. “Today’s release of Toolbar, Stickers and Collections, as well as the announcement of Location and Calendar, also shows our ambition to improve users’ experience of rich media. With the support of Microsoft, you can expect to see more innovations in both regular and rich media typing coming soon”

After Cupertino building official Albert Salvador visited Apple Park last year, he was concerned about employees running into the glass walls that were placed all around the campus as the cafeteria’s doors were indistinguishable from the glass walls, as we reported last month.

After bringing up the issue, a contractor walked right into one of the glass walls, the San Fransisco Chronicle reports.

The latest SwiftKey Beta fixed an annoying bug that made typing in comment forms like Disqus in Chrome a headache. Well, it turns out that the update brought a few new features, including an expandable toolbar that sits atop the prediction bar and stickers. If you’re the creative type, you’ll be happy to know that you can even make your own stickers within the keyboard.

The main attraction here is what SwiftKey is calling “Toolbar.” Tap the “+” sign sitting on the left side of the prediction bar to expand Toolbar, where you can access GIFs, downloadable sticker packs, settings, themes, the clipboard, and your “Collection” (more on that below).

Snapchat integrates GIF stickers from Giphy

Snapchat has announced that it was partnering with Giphy to provide clippable GIFs to adorn the Snaps that users send to friends or post to public Stories. This happened not too long after Snapchat came under heavy criticism for its new confusing interface after a recent update. Interestingly, Instagram was first one to offer insertable GIFs into Instragram Direct messages and Instagram Stories. What makes it even more interesting is that Giphy will provide these GIFs for Snaps, which is exactly the same provider for Instagram’s Stories’ GIFs. This move just screams “me too”. Snapchat…

Snapchat update adding Tabs and Giphy stickers

Snapchat logo wall

Shortly after Snapchat finally rolled out its major redesign to all users, Snap is pushing another update with more changes and improvements.

A new Snapchat feature called Tabs is coming soon. This feature will be available in the Friends and Discover pages of Snapchat and let you sort through your friends with active Stories, Group Chats, and Discover subscriptions.

The reaction to Snapchat’s redesign seems to be largely negative so far. While it doesn’t look like Snap is going to completely scrap the new look completely, the company does appear to be trying to tweak its new look to improve usability.

Snapchat GIPHY GIF support

Also rolling out to Snapchat is support for animated stickers from Giphy. This means that you can add GIFs to your posts by tapping the sticker icon and finding the GIF you want to add. You can scale the GIF sticker and pin it to a spot in your video if you’d like.

These new features will roll out to iOS users “soon”, while Android users will get them “in the coming weeks.”
