Available for Android and iOS until now, SwiftKey is ready for Windows 10. Windows Insiders in the Fast ring and those who opted in to Skip Ahead can use this popular virtual keyboard app in Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17692. The list of languages supported includes English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portugues, and Russian.

Yesterday, Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17692 to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring, but the new features included in this preview release can be experienced by those who opted in to Skip Ahead as well. In addition to many improvements and fixes, this build brings a handy tool from mobile to desktop: the virtual keyboard app SwiftKey is now available for Windows 10 users.

According to the official blog post about the new Windows 10 preview release, "SwiftKey intelligence comes to Windows" and this means more accurate autocorrection and improved prediction by learning the writing style of the user.

Those not familiar with SwiftKey for Android and iOS should know that this virtual keyboard app adapts to the user's style by taking into account more than just the most frequently used words — SwiftKey learns the most common phrases and emojis employed by its user, and it also takes into account the writing style.

Thanks to SwiftKey, Windows 10 users can improve their touch keyboard typing in UK and US English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and Russian. Are you a SwiftKey user on Android or iOS? Would you use/have you already used it on Windows 10? Let us know what you think in the comments section.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
