Microsoft’s New Android Keyboard will be the Hub of your Smartphone Operations

February 26, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Keyboards for Android devices are available aplenty in app stores. So, when one says there is a new keyboard out to be tested, it may not evoke any big interest in Android users, unless it comes from Microsoft.

There are plenty of reasons to get excited about this, as this new keyboard, called Hub, comes from the Microsoft Garage division, which has been rolling out some exciting stuff for the rival OSes recently.

Microsoft’s Hub does seem to be keeping up to all those expectations, going by its launch at MWC this week.

Like the name suggests, Microsoft is putting their keyboard in action to be the hub of most of your smartphone operations. Thanks to Garage, that it was only when they brought this idea did we think of why a keyboard service, which pops up in almost all of your apps, wasn’t getting evolved to cope up with multi-tasking features.


Microsoft Hub keyboard comes integrated with many services, like advanced copy-paste feature, which includes surfing through clipboard memories, searching of documents and easy-share of the same, instant access to contacts, and a translator option to get you rid of all those switching to translator while in midst of something interesting.

And, it comes from Microsoft, which means that document searches will also have access to Office 365 and OneDrive files. Sharing your documents from these or contacts will now let you have it without quitting the task you are doing in an app.

In short, multi-tasking is pretty much simplified in this new innovative keyboard from Microsoft. The product is now available in the preview version, which can be obtained here in Google Play Store.
