SwiftKey certainly likes their holiday Easter eggs (remember SwiftKey Tilt?) and Christmas is no exception. They’ve already released a Winter theme for the keyboard to get everyone in a festive mood, but apparently there’s a neat little Easter egg built into that update, too.
If you type “hohoho” anywhere with the keyboard, then long-press it in the word suggestion bar, snowflakes will begin falling across your screen. They’ll keep falling as long as the keyboard is up, so if you’re typing a very long text or email, this can give the experience a little more Christmas spirit. Cool little Easter egg, right?
