SwiftKey for Android Update Brings New Emojis

SwiftKey for Android has started receiving an update that adds support for the 184 new and updated emoji introduced with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The new update includes upside-down face, crab, burrito, bottle with popping cork, and reversed with middle finger extended. Apart from the new emojis, the app also brings changes to 48 existing emoji.


The SwiftKey team in a blog post said, "They've been available on the beta for a bit now, but we're excited to officially bring these new Android emoji to the market version of SwiftKey." The support for new emojis will be available for the devices running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

Apart from the new emojis, the SwiftKey Keyboard app gets new input currencies for Russia, Argentina, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Slovakia, Germany, Canada, and Australia. The update also brings improvements to typing behaviour when backspacing. It fixes some issues reported by users including auto space which now works with Japanese enabled and Evernote personalisation will now not cause repeated listing in settings. The update will now also allow users to type a URL. Previously, when users typed a URL, the keyboard suggested an autocorrect at the start of a message or capitalised the first "w".
