Backstory

Isn’t it painful to switch between apps on your phone to do copy and paste on simple tasks? What if everything that you needed were at your fingers, in any application you are typing in? Since the keyboard is available across the entire system, it can surface the things you need anywhere. With different information being available from the keyboard, users are no longer forced to jump between apps to do things such as sharing a contact info. This project began as Steve Won’s side project in March 2015, and it’s grown into a cross-team effort with engineers and designers from across the company. It’s been an amazing journey, and we are excited to share with you what we’ve been building.

To start, we’ve focused on providing value with a clipboard, document search for OneDrive and SharePoint, contacts search, and translate functionality built into the keyboard. In the coming weeks, a number of new features will also be introduced. We are very excited to hear your feedback, and evolve the product to help you be more productive.
