    Can anyone confirm if iOS on beta iOS 10 can support multi language keyboard support as listed by this previous thread I created back some time. I even wrote an email to Tim Cook (who know how many millions he gets daily)...

    I need to know that (not just Siri), the keyboard itself now supports multi language keyboard. Examples of these are: English-Spanish, English-German, English-Italian.

    Thank you.

    Just as I try to use it, it doesn't work. Here's a screenshot from the keynote:

    Keep in mind that it is still in beta so it's not perfect yet.

    That's so cool, can you add the emoji icon in addition?

    Does anyone know if you need to have the keyboard for each language enabled for this to work?

    That's been my experience as well. Wish there was a way to only enable the language and not the keyboard. I don't need another keyboard for German, long pressing vowels for umlauts is easier than switching keyboards.

    Im not sure what you mean by adding the emoji sign.. Are you referring to having some words changed to emoji?

    Emojis appear in the QuickType suggestions even with the Emoji keyboard turned off.

    Ah I see what you mean. If you have more than one keyboard active, the emoji gets replaced with a world looking icon , you can hold and then you can select emojis as so...

    I like the on off slider for the predictions in that screen shot, much easier than the old way of collapsing the predictions which was nearly impossible to activate.

    Happy for multi language. But it's really weird how they implemented it. Let me choose two languages and not two keyboard! Again, have emoji as a separated keyboard it's very stupid. Everyone use emoji, then give a button dedicated, I don't want to press world button many times to activate emoji keyboard if I have multiple languages.

    Correct I feel the same way. Samsung by far has nailed it the way they designed thirst keyboard. Multi language, dedicated emoji button and a number row.

    The same right the thirds part all, swift key now that Microsoft bought it. Apple should have bought swiftley

    @Creek0512:What do you mean? I´m on iOS 9.3.2 and I can´t see a difference.

    Sorry, I quoted the wrong post before, so I did it this way.
