For now, you might be against Predictive Text on Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. So, you’re right to choose to give up on it, especially if you’ve heard – or tested first hand – that it can sometimes give you wrong typing suggestions. But if you do that (give up on testing it and getting to know all of its options) you will probably never find out why so many people still appreciate it!
That’s right, there are lots of critics on this topic, but there are just as many Samsung users who learned how to tweak it and find it an extremely helpful option. One of the most praised things about it is that users can personally edit the dictionary option and correct common mistakes once and for all.
For the time being, we suggest you forget everything you’ve heard of or everything you thought you knew about the predictive text on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. Here’s what you should remember, instead…
Galaxy S9 And Galaxy S9 Plus Devices Have This Editable Dictionary For The Predictive Text
The Predictive Text on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus comes with this built-in Auto Replacement feature. Say you type something and the function sees it as a potentially misspelled, inappropriate or just wrong word for that context. If that’s the case, it can and it will correct it automatically. But these corrections are established based on a dictionary where the Predictive Text stores various words as you type more and more texts. That’s why, for every word that you start typing, you see those suggestions in that small menu underneath your typing box. If you ignore it, the texting app will insert the word that was selected in that bar, even if you typed something else.
We get that you might be very tempted to ignore the suggestions in that menu… Yet selecting the right word from that bar will basically allow you to edit the Galaxy S9 dictionary. You’ll see that, at some point, the words you’re using in your conversations will start to repeat. If you’ve taken care to select the right forms early on, you will no longer deal with inappropriate correction options. That’s when you’ll start loving this option but if you feel it’s still too much for you…
The Galaxy S9 Or Galaxy S9 Plus Autocorrect Can Be Disabled If You:
- Go to the Settings menu of the device;
- Open the Language & Input settings;
- Tap on your Samsung keyboard listed in there;
- Select the Smart Typing and disable the Predictive Text from there.
Since you’re so determined to deactivate this smart typing option, perhaps you don’t want to have the other options either. Consequently, it’s good to know that, right where you have the Predictive Text, you also have the Auto Replace (makes automatic corrections), the Auto check spelling (underlines words that require corrections, without modifying them), Auto spacing (adds spaces for you, between words, as you type) and Auto punctuation (adds apostrophes, periods, and so on, wherever required).
Make no mistake, simply because you’ve chosen to disable the Autocorrect on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus (or Predictive Text as you’ll find it in the menus) does not mean you must deactivate everything else. Perhaps you didn’t even know about many of the options we just mentioned. Moreover, perhaps they were already disabled and you’d like to give them a try. Since you found out about them and you have us vouching that many users actually find them useful… why don’t you give the Predictive Text from Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus and to everything else another try?
