After Being Acquired by Microsoft, SwiftKey Now Offers Emoji Prediction App

20-July – London: A couple of month after being acquired by Microsoft, British soft-keyboard developer SwiftKey now publishes emoji prediction app “Swiftmoji” to work with they keyboard app. SwiftKey data scientists leverage crowdsourced emoji usage data in order to establish an emoji prediction function. The SwiftKey keyboard has a similar function, based on local usage data, but the new app is going to leverage crowdsourced data in order provide the predictions.

Once they pop up, you can select the most appropriate one out of the offered options. I could not download it on Android OS myself, as apparently none of my devices are compatible with this add-on-app, even though the main SwiftKey app is, but maybe that will be fixed in the future. It’s free so you can check Swiftmoji out for yourself with the download buttons below.
