This replaces the keyword "hw" with "hello world" wherever you type it in a text field. Sometimes it does not work as you type, but when you stop editing text (when you press the back button or tap away from the text field). Downside is that if it does work as you type then your cursor gets moved to the wrong place. It can only work for one keyword at a time. I can't guarantee it will work on all text fields, but it worked both times I tested it: in a note on Google keep, and in Textra SMS.
