Perhaps one of the biggest strengths of Android is the huge app ecosystem that Google’s mobile operating system has. No matter what kind of app you want, there are dozens of options to choose from.

When it comes to keyboard apps, Google’s Gboard is the default choice of most users. However, there are quite a few alternatives as well, and one of them is SwiftKey. Owned and developed by Microsoft, the keyboard app comes with many features like swipe typing and GIF integration. And with the newest update, it’s gotten even better.

SwiftKey has added a new feature to its Android keyboard app, which allows users to quickly and easily share anything from the web. It works in tandem with the integrated web search functionality, which SwiftKey already has.

Using the new search functionality, users can search for anything on the web and share the results with other users, directly from SwiftKey. Not just that, the results can be easily screenshotted and cropped before being shared. To get started, follow the steps below:

– Open the toolbar by tapping on the ‘+’ icon on the top left corner of the keyboard, and select the search icon.

– When you type the search string, SwiftKey will return instant rich search results (from Bing). In case you type a URL as the search string, you’ll be directed to the target webpage.

– Crop the results, if needed. Once done, hit the Send button.
