Autocorrect can be helpful for resolving quick typing mistakes when you’re typing quickly, but at times it can be more of a nuisance than it’s worth. Fortunately, you can switch autocorrect off on LG G7 and LG G6. Once switched off, your words will not change whatsoever after you’ve typed them.
Alternatively, you can stop the LG G6/LG G7 from auto correcting certain words. In this guide, we’ll be showing how you can turn autocorrect on LG G6 and LG G7 on or off. Use this guide to switch autocorrect off, and bookmark this page in case you ever need to remember how to turn it back on again.
How to turn on and off autocorrect on LG G6/LG G7:
- Make sure the LG is switched on
- Open the messages app, or an app where you can type. Use that app to bring up the keyboard app. (For example, start writing new message in Messenger.)
- Tap and hold the button on the left side of the Space Bar.
- Next, select the settings option. It looks like a small gear.
- In the new menu, there will be a section for “Smart Typing.” Underneath that there will be an option to disable “Predictive Text” on LG G7 and LG G6
- You can also use this menu to disable other settings, including auto-capitalization and punctuation.
If you ever decide you need to turn autocorrect back on, come back to this page and follow the steps provided above. This time you simply need to enable the predictive text option to get autocorrect on LG G7 and LG G6 to start working again.
If you’re using a keyboard installed via Google Play, you may need to follow a different route to find the keyboard settings menu, but a key for the settings should be visible on the keyboard itself.
