Microsoft’s Garage Studios is at it again with another Android app, this time with a keyboard that’s designed to make doing a lot of different things even easier.
Microsoft’s Hub Keyboard started as a passion project for Steve Won, a senior designer within the Office team, back in March of 2015. Now, almost a year later the project has seen release within the Google Play Store. The keyboard will let users quickly copy and paste items, share contact information, search for and share documents, and even translate parts of messages if needed.
The Hub Keyboard was designed to make it possible to stop switching between apps so often, bringing all of those features into the same keyboard, which is accessible in any app that supports a keyboard. Now when you’re in a conversation with someone, you don’t need to jump into your Contacts app to find a number, it’s all accessible right there within the keyboard.
The Hub Keyboard is a free download from the Play Store, and a link to it is available below for those that want to try it out.
