And it works not just on the touch screen, but on the slider keyboard as well.
Faster one-handed typing
When you type, instead of lifting your finger and pressing individual keys, you can slide your finger between keys to form words. Between words, slide your finger to the spacebar, or lift your finger. Our auto prediction takes care of the rest.
For example, to type “Good morning,” start with your finger on the G key, then slide your finger across the keyboard to O, and so on.
Turn on Type by Swiping
To turn on this feature, follow these steps:
Swipe down from the top of the screen once with two fingers or twice with one finger.
Tap > Language and Input> BlackBerry Keyboard Settings > Type by swiping.
Turn on the Touch screen keyboard or the Physical keyboard switch.
Why isn’t Type by Swiping on by default?
We want you to be able to choose! When you turn on type by swiping, the other keyboard gestures (swipe for symbols, swipe to delete) are turned off, since the keyboard gestures and the movements that you make when you swipe to create words are very similar.
For future updates, we’re looking into ways to distinguish between different gestures with more certainty so that you can use both with ease.
