About this app

Add some zest to your messaging experience with a smart and slick auto-correct feature, smooth swiping, a dedicated translator, and voice commands that support emoticons, GIFs, and stickers. Chat away like never before.


Your security and anonymity is our top priority

All input data is completely anonymized and won't be collected without your permission. The keyboard collects your input so it can learn and adapt to your personal style (don't worry, you can toggle this feature on or off in settings). None of your passwords, contacts, credit card information or other sensitive data is being collected.

Reads, writes, and speaks like a native

The keyboard uses proprietary machine learning algorithms developed by Yandex in order to make appropriate suggestions as you type. Advanced predictive capabilities even let you receive suggestions for words you haven't typed yet. You can also suggest your own words and let the keyboard adapt to the way you talk, or just forgo the feature altogether.

An interpreter in your pocket

The keyboard knows 70 languages and can easily translate phrases between multiple language pairs, including English, Afrikaans, Albanian, Arabic, Armenian, Azerbaijani, Bashkir, Basque, Belarusian, Bengali, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chuvash, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, French, Gaelic, Galician, Georgian, German, Greek, Haitian, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Italian, Kazakh, Kyrgyz, Latin, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Malagasy, Malay, Maltese, Mari, Mongolian, Nepali, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Tagalog, Tajik, Tamil, Tatar, Telugu, Turkish, Udmurt, Ukrainian, Uzbek, Vietnamese, Welsh, Yakut, and Zulu. You can use the keyboard to effortlessly talk to people who don't speak your native tongue, without worrying about grammar rules.

Make talking more fun

Spice up your conversations with animated GIFs (built-in search included), emojis, and stickers, and you can even get emoji suggestions as you type along. The keyboard also supports kaomojis, which are fun emoticons constructed with Japanese characters, such as this angry guy flipping a table ( ╯°□°)╯┻━━┻ or a cute little bear ヽ( ̄(エ) ̄)ノ.

Enjoy tools for every occasion and a host of useful options

You can change up the keyboard's design: make it vibrant and colorful or go for something darker and sleeker looking. Don't waste your time on toggling and swiping: add numbers and other extra characters to your main keyboard layout for instant access. If you need to turn to the Internet for help, a built-in Yandex search is always right at your fingertips.

While I had already made sure the auto correct feature was on, I had not cleared personal dictionary, not being able to see what was in that dictionary. Clearing it brought the i to I auto correct online. Thanks for your help. On another note, I cleared my blacklist of maybe 100 words line item by line item. No way to select all and mark two words to keep.

Not as good as Google's keyboard but still very useful. I like the fact use can create your keyboard as well. However, I would like to use color names as oppose to the color picker. Also, the clipboard needs to automatically erase after about an hour or so. Otherwise, it's a great keyboard.

THEY DID IT! finally! I am switching back to yandex keyboard after using gboard for most of a year. I needed an easier way to move my cursor and select text, but yandex did not implement it for the longest time. I LOVE the new editing bar that they added, and the cursor movement w the spacebar is perfect. I will say, they're not quite up to date w the latest emojis, and the emoji combination that Google has now is tough to give up..... But for more technical typing Yandex will be my pick 👍🏼
