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.

This is an almost perfect keyboard. The features, customization, prediction accuracy, and just about everything else is top notch. Unfortunately, Russian language features keep creeping in regardless of the set language. Even when set to English, the quotation mark symbols ("") get automatically converted into the Cyrillic versions («») in Microsoft Office apps and a few others. You have to go further into symbols and select the italicized version (“”) to get them to stick. Please fix!

Please clarify, does this not happen with another keyboard? Our Keyboard does not change the type of quotes, most likely it is done by the application itself, where you type the text. Please check it out. If it's about us, open the Feedback form in the application settings and describe everything in detail there.

This is an elegant keyboard when typing. However, please correct me if I'm wrong. If so I will change my review. When I use voice to text I can't really control punctuation. If I end a sentence and say tyoes out the word period rather than putting the punctuation. That is extremely frustrating. I also don't want automatic punctuation as that doesn't accurately work with voice. Am I missing something?

We will be able to understand the situation way better if you send us a video of the screen that can illustrate what happened. To do this, open our application, select "Settings" — "Feedback". Thank you!

I love this keyboard. Much better than Gboard. Only suggestion is a way to move the cursor vertically. I switch from iPhone and they had a feature where you could long press the space bar and it would move the cursor all over and if you pressed harder it would highlight text. If this feature could be added it is 100% the best keyboard app in my opinion.
