New SwiftKey for Android update brings new keypress sounds

Himanshu, 14 March 2017

A new update has been pushed out to SwiftKey's Android client. The update brings along a "highly requested" feature: the ability to customize the keyboard with sound profiles. A total of four new profiles have been added: Traditional, Android, Modern and Blip.

You can access these by tapping/sliding the hamburger icon on the left of the prediction bar, and then entering the SwiftKey Hub. From there, open the ‘Typing’ panel and select ‘Sound and Vibration’.

Head to the Play Store link below to download the updated app.
