Makers of the SwiftKey custom keyboard for Android have been conducting a beta test with Chinese-speaking users for quite some time now. Today they announced that SwiftKey for Android now has full support for the Chinese language. There are seven new input methods that ensures users have a choice no matter how they like to type.

Following the successful beta test the app has gained full support for Simplified Chinese, Taiwan Traditional Chinese and Hong Kong Traditional Chinese.

For Simplified Chinese SwiftKey now supports the QWERTY Pinyin input method as well as the stroke and 12-key Pinyin input methods. For Taiwan Traditional Chinese users there is support for full key Zhuyin, 12-key Zhuyin and stroke input methods.

SwiftKey also brings support for Hong Kong Traditional Chinese with Cangjie, Quick Cangjie as well as the stroke input methods being supported.

The new language support isn’t all that the new SwiftKey for Android update brings. It also has a new theme which celebrates the Chinese New Year.

There is improved prediction strength for full sentences and the app’s learning algorithm ensures that the custom keyboard learns and adapts to the user’s typing style.

SwiftKey for Android is available as a free download. The latest version is now live at the Google Play Store.
