After quite a long time since Google's mobile operating system got a Dark Mode, SwiftKey for Android gets to support it. The new update — released yesterday and labeled 7.4.9.11 — also comes with a redesigned Settings area that makes it even easier to customize your virtual keyboard.

Although some time has passed since we talked about SwiftKey, the Microsoft-owned virtual keyboard app is doing great and is being updated regularly. The latest refresh for the Android version arrived yesterday and it comes with two noticeable changes: Dark Mode support and a redesigned Settings area.

According to the official SwiftKey Keyboard Google Play page, the brand-new look of the app comes with redesigned Settings that "make things easier to find and your SwiftKey Keyboard easier to customize" and the Dark Mode is available as an option for devices running Android 10. For Android Pie, the app adopts the system-wide Dark Mode setting — at least this is what happened in my case. 

While the aforementioned Google Play page claims that the latest version, released yesterday, is labeled 7.4.8.3, I am running 7.4.9.11 and this is definitely not a beta. New users should know that SwiftKey for Android only needs 14 MB of space, has been downloaded by more than 500,000,000 times so far, and requires at least Android 5.0 Lollipop. With a rating of 4.4 out of 5 after more than 3,400,000 users shared their opinion on Google Play, SwiftKey is one of those apps that any new Android user must try. I am not saying that Gboard is bad, but why not get something better if it's free and does not need a top-of-the-line handset to run smoothly?

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
