June 20, 2012

Nuance has released Swype Beta v. for Android. The update delivers a redesigned Swype software keyboard with a “living keyboard” experience, next word prediction, default dictionary editing, multimodal keyboard capabilities (four-in-one: Swype, Type, Write or Speak), voice and text dictionary sync, and it can now be installed alongside outdated versions that may be pre-installed on some devices. Check out the video promo above and demo below, then head to to download the new and improved Swype Beta for Android.

New Swype Beta v. Features:

- Fresh new look: Cleaner, simpler, and even more intuitive.

- Living Learning Keyboard: Swype builds your personal language model to fit your input style. It’s a ‘living keyboard’: the more you use Swype, the more accurate it gets.

- Default dictionary editing: Swype Beta users can now suppress words in Swype’s default dictionary.

- Next Word Prediction: Swype’s next word prediction is amazingly intelligent as Nuance has integrated capabilities from its renowned XT9 portfolio. Swype gets smarter based on historical usage, so prediction becomes more accurate with each use.

- Voice-Text Dictionary Syncing: Swype now includes a personal dictionary. Every new word a user enters on the keyboard gets added to their personal dictionary for speech and text, and you can even have Swype learn from emails, texts and posts. These updates are then mapped into Swype’s unified language model, so people can immediately speak or write that same word no matter how unique or specialized.

- Language Downloads: Swypers everywhere can communicate in any language they speak, as Swype now supports the download of over 55 languages right from the device.

- Four-in-One Keyboard: Swype now delivers a four input modalities in one keyboard. People can swype from letter to letter; type rapidly with predictive text input powered by XT9; speak their text naturally through a fully integrated Dragon button; or, simply write letters, words and symbols using their fingertip. Further, users can switch back and forth between modalities on the fly – providing the ultimate in keyboard personalization.

- Works alongside pre-installed Swype: The latest Swype Beta can be installed on all Android devices.
