A new Android keyboard app is launched by the Microsoft on the heels of its SwiftKey acquisition that enables you to share contacts, documents and instantly translate messages.
The Redmond’s hack labs of Microsoft Garage have also launched a latest Hub Keyboard app, and it was aimed at Office 365 users on Android and integrated services by the innovative productivity platform with the keyboard interface.
The aim of the keyboard is to make the users to share the contacts and documents easily by emailing or by sending text messages. The main idea to launch this keyboard is, while sharing information the switching between apps must be minimized. If you need to send any link to your friend, then from the top of the keyboard you need to simply click on the document icon and can search for the relevant file to send.
From an Office 365 account the app will enable you to search SharePoint and OneDrive documents also. Many other features are associated with it such as translate service, clipboard and you can share the contacts from the phone or Office 365.
The integration of keyword with Office 365 should not be a surprise because currently the Office suite of Microsoft is available on the Android along with the Outlook. Steve Won the senior designer on the Office team, hatched this idea and says on a smartphone he don’t like switching between apps to get things done.
Also he said that the skills he has is only coding to built a prototype, but was able to get connect with the engineers from the Microsoft Garage through “internal //one week Hackathon 2015” of Microsoft to realize the product. Garage is dedicated as Microsoft notes in order to develop the hacking culture across Microsoft.
From this you can get much number of new experimental apps such as Sprightly Android app which is recently released for making business cards, the Windows sketching app Plumbago, Android Arrow launcher, and Fetch, an iOS app and web that shows how AL of Microsoft can identify different breeds of dog.
As the establishment of SwiftKey keyboard was made the Microsoft planned to maintain the brand by integrating Word Flow keyboard as its technology for the iPhone.
