Nuance Communications announces an end to Swype keyboard, focuses on AI for Business

Swype – one of the most popular keyboard units on the Android operating system – will no longer receive updates. This was made known by the management of the company behind the keyboard technology, Nuance Communications, who have decided to discontinue the application altogether. It should be noted that this is coming at a time when several users of the keyboard are still reporting bugs on the application.

Nuance might have no plan to pull the application from the Google Play Store though. Should a user still be interested in it, they can get the latest version. However, on the iOS app store, there will be no traces of the application whatsoever.

In the starting days of Swype, they were able to break into a lot of markets and gain popularity due to being the official keyboard app that came with most Huawei devices. Now, the business would be looking at focusing on AI solutions that could be sold directly to the top buyers – businesses.

That is surely going to be a major blow to those who have come to trust the keyboard for all their typing needs. The good news is that there are still a number of great choices worth considering out there. One of them is the Gboard offered by Google, and another is the SwiftKey application developed by Microsoft. Both are still available on the iOS and Android stores and get regular updates to keep them going.
