I always wondered about this and never felt the need to ask because I figured I would figure it out on my own. But I can't find an answer.
All of these games, especially multiplayer games, we people play in the West, use keyboard input. Since Sougou and Google / MS Pinyin IME are strictly OS tailored....how is it done in games? Do they still use Pinyin as input? Does every game have their own program? It sounds like a massive investment. What about messenger apps etc.
I'm interested to know how this is dealt with, maybe a question for people who live in China. Thank you.
