Nearly 1.2 billion people around the world speak some form of Chinese as their first language. Now, ai.type is pleased to announce that it has added Simplified Chinese to its list of options for version 3.0 of the virtual keyboard. Not only is it easier than ever to type with the new Material Design but now one of the most popular languages is available in all features and in full support!
The new version allows users to input Chinese characters by entering the pinyin of the character and then presents a list of possible characters with that pronunciation. With this method, users enter letters in Latin phonetic and ai.type finds the most appropriate Simplified Chinese character to match it. This feature has been in the works for quite some time now and our developers are excited about its launch, as well as the reach of a much larger audience that speaks and types in Chinese all over the world. Users will enjoy all of the same features available for other languages including:
- Auto-completion and correction
- Next word prediction
- Spelling and grammar check
- A free and personalized theme market
- Custom keyboard layout
Typing in Chinese has never been easier and more user-friendly! We would love to hear your feedback on our new language option, please try it out and let us know what you think through our support or in the comments section below.
