However, the Nuance’s product team responded back with a shocking statement that the company will no longer provide any updates for the Swype+Dragon keyboard for Android.
Nuance revealed that they are sorry to leave the direct-to-consumer keyboard business The main intention of the discontinuation is to enable the company to develop AI-based solutions for sale directly to businesses. Going forward, the company will provide software solutions to business houses and not to the end-user or consumers.

The company is gearing up to develop AI-based solutions to enhance voice-based dictation and the discontinuation of the software will enable developers to concentrate on the development activities.
Meanwhile, Nuance also confirmed to XDA Developers that they are ending development of Swype Keyboard. The app is available in Google Play Store for $1. If you would like to experience the software, you can purchase and install it. However, the company won’t be providing any updates or any support.
