This would be even better now hand tracking has been added.

Yes this would be a great feature! Even now while the messenger is integrated! Please add this kind of feature in the following firmware!

With direct touch coming in v50, it's the perfect time to add a swipe keyboard!

Certainly would be a good time to add it.

I think Swipe input is definitely going to work well, especially when we have AR glasses in the bus. I can use my knee as a surface to tap type quickly but I have feeling it'll be more precise using swipe input right?

Check out the newly-released Virtual Keyboard for Unity & native apps, which includes swipe!

It would be great if it was available to users. I just checked and even the public test channel doesn't have this yet. In truth, it isn't working in native apps.

Perhaps in v56?

Hi Alan,

I should clarify:

The Virtual Keyboard is a new package we are providing to third-party developers to integrate into their Unity & native applications (and hopefully release to their users!). In this context, "native" refers to applications built using our Native SDK instead of using a game engine integration like Unity. Since it's an entirely new API, this won't have an impact on any existing virtual keyboards .

I can't comment on upcoming releases, but I'll keep you posted if anything changes related to swipe!

Thanks Matt. Meta is doing good work, overall, and I'm excited about what's coming later this year.

I just wish the pace of change was faster. I expected adding swipe input to an Android-based device would be easy.
