SwiftKey recently gave users the ability to translate conversations without having to leave their apps, and now it's making it easier to search the web. SwiftKey for Android has added a search function, allowing users to search for what they need right from their keyboards. Just open the Toolbar by tapping the "+" on the top left of the keyboard, tap the search icon and type in your search. If you're typing in words, the search function will bring up results from Bing while typing a URL will take you right to that page. You can then share links or screenshots without having to leave your app.
SwiftKey adds a surprisingly handy search bar to its Android keyboard
I’ve been switching between Google’s Gboard and SwiftKey for the past couple of years as my default Android software keyboard, because both of them offer compelling features. However, I’m partial to SwiftKey because of its arrow keys for moving around text – and I now have another reason to stick with it. The Microsoft-owned service now has a search bar built into the keyboard, so you can look up anything on the web, share the search results instantly, or even grab and send a screenshot on-the-fly – all without leaving the app you’re using right then
