Windows 10: Keyboard gets predictive text

Microsoft is bringing a bunch of new features to Windows 10 and while they did not talk about all of them at the announcement, we are finding little bits here and there. This time around, Microsoft is including predictive text input with the virtual keyboard.

As you can see in the image at the top of this post, it works a lot like Windows Phone with the suggestions appearing across the top of the keyboard. For now, the predictive text is not universal and only shows up when searching. We fully expect Microsoft to bring the feature to the keyboard at all times when the OS ships next year but it is good to see that this feature is jumping the gap from Windows Phone to the desktop.

While the full WordFlow Windows Phone experience is not quite here, meaning you can't swipe your fingers across the keyboard to write a word, it would not surprise us to see this feature show up too.

For now, keep your eyes open when using Windows 10 to see if you find any new features that were not announced at the keynote. If you do, make sure to send us a tip!
