Swedish accents in alphabet

I am learning Swedish but unlike German and Spanish the accent options for typing are not there? ( like the dots above the a and etc.) Does that have something to do with the "beta" title?

They're working on it. I can't find the post in which Anrui addressed why the buttons weren't there, but here's a thread where you can learn how to add the diacritics yourself, from your keyboard.

If you have an iPad, iPhone, etc, you can hold down the letter "a" to get the "ä" and "å" letters, and you can hold down the "o" to get "ö"

Thank you, but I am doing this from a laptop so Im not sure holding down one of the keys would work XD
