Compared with the “WeChat Keyboard” APP,glorycell phoneThe Baidu input method APP that comes with the system occupies only 90MB of space, so will the “WeChat keyboard”, which is far larger than its peers, have any unique experience in using it?
After the installation is successful, the first thing we see is the guide setting interface. Compared with similar APPs, the guide setting interface of “WeChat Keyboard” is more concise as a whole. It mainly highlights a function called Spelling Plus, and the system prompts After enabling this function, the APP will upload some user data. In order to bring you a complete user experience, we choose to enable it here.
After completing the setting, we can see that its overall design is very simple, and it does not provide the function of changing the skin at present.
We can see that the “WeChat Keyboard” provides common functions such as speech-to-text, emoticons, and spell checking. Here we mainly help you experience the more practical speech-to-text function.
After a simple experience, we found that the recognition accuracy and recognition speed of the speech-to-text function of the “WeChat Keyboard” are quite good, which also made us wonder if this APP is so large and has a built-in local AI speech recognition engine? Therefore, we conducted a mobile phone disconnection test and found that the voice-to-text function cannot be used in a no-network environment.
The next experience is the intelligent recommendation function of “WeChat Keyboard”. The principle of this function is to recommend some links and content in the WeChat ecosystem according to the content you enter. For example, entering the title of a book can directly share the link of WeChat reading, or enter The corresponding official account name can also be quickly linked.
In the experience, what amazes me after all is that this APP can not realize the quick keyboard layout switching function, that is to say, when the user needs to switch the full keyboard to the nine-square keyboard, he needs to go to the setting options to make separate settings. This design It makes people feel very puzzled, maybe this is a kind of concise beauty.
For now, the experience of “WeChat Keyboard” is relatively simple and concise, and it is expected that more functions will not be launched until the official version, but this also makes people worry about the further expansion of its application volume. Under the background that Tencent already owns old-fashioned input methods such as Sogou input method and QQ input method, WeChat’s approach of launching a mobile phone input method can be said to be a bit confusing, but we do feel that the “WeChat keyboard” and The differences in the design ideas of the mainstream input methods, and more detailed experience need to wait until the official version is launched before trying.
