Microsoft developers continue to integrate advanced neural network chatbot-based features into various products. This time they have added AI bot support to their SwiftKey Keyboard for Android devices.
A new feature has appeared in the beta version of the SwiftKey app. With its help, you can launch the chatbot in the Bing search engine with one touch from any application using the virtual keyboard. Users can use the chatbot in normal mode, make text requests or give voice commands that will be converted to text online and processed by the algorithm. It is enough to install the SwiftKey keyboard to be able to quickly interact with the AI bot from any application.
At this time, access to the chatbot is only implemented in the beta version of the SwiftKey application. Microsoft has indicated that the rollout of the new feature will be gradual and may not be available in all regions at this time. When the chatbot will be integrated into the stable version of SwiftKey is still unknown. It also does not specify when the AI bot will be available for testing by Microsoft keyboard users on iOS devices. Keep in mind that Microsoft acquired SwiftKey in 2016 when consumer demand for third-party keyboards increased significantly. Since then, the Android version of the application has continued to be one of the most popular in its category.
