How can we improve Word Flow Keyboard for iPhone?

Dictation

Really would love to see a dictation button that lets me use voice to text with word flow.

    Unfortunately, iOS doesn’t let 3rd party keyboards to access the microphone. If this changes in the future, we’ll certainly get on it!

        Unfortunately, dictation is critical to the ultimate success of the Word Flow keyboard. Any chance of Microsoft building it into the Word Flow keyboard appropriate? I'm half keyboard, half distinction and I expect that ratio to remain about the same. Many text entry circumstances are not appropriate for dictation entry.

        Either Microsoft voice dictation or linked with Apple voice dictation because sometimes too lazy to write

        Apple doesn't allow use of the microphone on third-party keyboards. Hopefully, they'll change their policy.
