What you need to know
- SwiftKey's latest version is here.
- It contains Microsoft To Do integration.
Update August 31, 2021: The feature is in the standard release of SwiftKey, and the post's text has been updated.
The virtual keyboard app, SwiftKey, has a new update. In the update, you'll notice Microsoft To Do has been integrated.
As spotted by Android Police, To Do has made its way to SwiftKey. Specifically, it appears as a toolbar shortcut, helping you make tasks more easily.
To Do should be enabled by default once you update to the latest version of SwiftKey, and using it is as simple as pulling up the toolbar and giving the To Do checkmark a tap. It's useful for making tasks as well as saving whatever's on your clipboard, in case there's a link you want to store for later.
Some features, such as priority setting, still need to be done directly in To Do, but this first swing at integration is a start for the introduction of the latter Microsoft tool into the former.
This isn't Microsoft To Do's only notable appearance as of late. To Do also has a starring role in the new Windows 11 Clock app, which introduces a feature called Focus Sessions. In the new Clock app, To Do and Spotify are both integrated so you can keep track of priorities and chores while jamming out to your favorite tunes, all with the benefit of the app's Focus Sessions keeping track of time for you, monitoring breaks, and more. And, of course, if you just want to check the time, there's that, too.
