Among the many new features that Huawei has introduced and users seem to be very excited about is the Predictive Text. As the name suggests, this is an input technology that recommends you what words to type based on the first letters that you type from the keyboard and the specific context of your message.
The purpose is to help you type faster, sparing you from having to type all the letters of a word. If you like the sound of that and you want to know how to turn Predictive Text On and Off on Huawei P20/P10/P9/P8/Honor 10/9/8/7/Mate 10/9/8/Y9/Y5/Y3, here are the steps you need to follow:
- Turn on the smartphone;
- Go to the general Settings;
- Tap on Language & Input;
- Tap on Huawei Keyboard;
- Find the Predictive Text feature;
- Tap on it to switch it from Off to On or the other way around.
Now that you know the basics, perhaps we should introduce you to the advanced settings. Thanks to it, your Huawei P20/P10/P9/P8/Honor 10/9/8/7/Mate 10/9/8/Y9/Y5/Y3 supports a couple of extra controls. Basically, you can create a set of time-delays associated with a particular key stroke. You pick a symbol that you use more often and associate it to a long press key stroke. The first time when you long press that key, instead of the letter associated with it, the keyboard will type that symbol or special character.
Another interesting feature is the text correction. Through this function, the texting app will automatically correct certain words. The more you type, the easier it will be for your Huawei P20/P10/P9/P8/Honor 10/9/8/7/Mate 10/9/8/Y9/Y5/Y3 to “learn” your common words and correct misspelled words as it adds your frequent selections to a special dictionary.
