Announcing SwiftKey Insiders Community

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

SwiftKey has always been very interested in getting feedback from our community. There was once upon a time a private beta community helping test SwiftKey before the official launch. In fact, this was the genesis of the VIP forum. 

 

Since SwiftKey's inception, we've had a range of beta programs: public, to private, to very private. Now that SwiftKey for Android beta is completely open (and listed in the Play Store) that community and feedback has moved over to our support forums. We felt like this just made the most sense. 

 

What do we do with this forum then, you say? 

 

Launch A New Community - Of Course

 

Keeping the spirit of this forum's creation alive - testing and early feedback - we are proud to announce the launch of SwiftKey Insiders. Wait, hold on a second...SwiftKey Insiders, you say? Sounds a lot like Windows Insiders? Well you're right, it is a very similar program. If you missed it, SwiftKey was acquired by Microsoft in early 2016 - that is part of the reason why we are using the SwiftKey Insiders name; plus it also rolls off the tongue nicely.

 

What Is SwiftKey Insiders?

SwiftKey Insiders is designed to be a smaller community focused on giving feedback on new projects we are working on. (more on this later) Since this is a smaller community, there will be emphasis on quality. What do you mean by quality? We want members to be very active and engage with us and other members regularly. We don't want this to be a chore, this should be a fun and enjoyable experience.

 

How or why would it be fun? We're glad you asked.

 

Why Should I Join?

We are looking for people who like using SwiftKey and want to help make SwiftKey and any future SwiftKey products better for yourself and everyone else who uses them. How? By providing your honest and thoughtful feedback via the projects that we share with you. While we know that many of you who identify as "power users" and early adopters enjoy beta testing apps, we also hope that some of you who just use your phone a lot will want to participate as well. Everyone's opinions matter equally here!

 

What Are These Projects?

We will be sharing a range of different projects through this community. They will be based on features and products that are currently in development and we want to get community feedback on how to fine-tune them and make them better before they get a full rollout. 

 

Here are some examples of the types of projects you'd see:

  • Mockups
  • Early designs
  • Surveys (most likely lots of them)
  • Polls
  • Prototypes
    • Virtual
    • APKs

 

Trust and Validation

Since this community is going to be focused around unreleased features and products, there needs to be a level of trust here. If you decide to signup - we do ask you quite a few questions to get to know you a little better and why you want to join. You'll also be required to sign an NDA. 

 

Supported Platforms

Sounds great, how do I join? This community is currently only open to Android users. if you do use iOS or Windows, feel to sign up in the event that we open this program to support additional platforms.

 

If this sounds like something that interests you, sign up using the signup button.

Is this taking place over VIP 2.0?

It's the same thing. VIP 2.0 was just the placeholder name. SwiftKey Insiders is the official name.

So does this mean that the people from SwiftKey VIP 2.0 are already SwiftKey Insiders?

Hi,

I suggest you to do it on mobile browser (Chrome, for example), or on a desktop. I doubt Tapatalk supports deep settings like these.

I have made some changes to this post to make it more clear what this new community is about and how to get involved.

 

SwiftKey VIP 2.0 is the same thing as SwiftKey Insiders - so if you were already a part of SwiftKey VIP 2.0 and participated in projects, then you are already good. I would highly suggested you still go edit your profile and account preferences to make sure we have all the right information for you. 

 

Also as mentioned, this level of editing cannot be done with tapatalk. You will need to go on a mobile browser.
