After the advent of the Android KitKat version of OS in the market, all the smartphone makers are trying to update their softwares to match the UI of the device. Thus in the same line of progress, Sony has rolled out its latest Xperia Keyboard on Google Play Store.
However, according to Xperiablog, the official Sony Xperia Keyboard, which is available widely is limited only to Xperia devices running on Android 4.4 (KitKat). This is a sad news for many. The version of the Xperia Keyboard on Google Play is 6.4.A.0.6, compared to 6.3.A.0.18 available on other Xperia devices running on KitKat.
Sony has already announced to update its Xperia Z line-up of devices to Android KitKat verson next month and now the new app roll-out would surely be of great help. Sony describes the app, saying "Xperia keyboard is your default keyboard for all languages except Chinese, Japanese and Korean. It offers a superior swiping experience as well as traditional tapping. The keyboard quickly adapts to your writing style, learning your words and can be further personalized from Gmail, Facebook and Twitter," on Play Store.
Google has released their stock Google Keyboard on Google Play last year, but it is still not available globally. Motorola, and HTC, have also done the same thing previously.
The features include Backup and sync via which the users can connect the keyboard to their Sony Entertainment Network account, to ensure the same keyboard experience across all your Xperia devices, present and future. Also a new and improved keyboard layout for Thai features in this version.
