How To Quickly Access And Control Autocorrect On Galaxy S8 And Galaxy S8+ Plus

Fixing typos or spelling errors with the help of this Autocorrect function from your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus is sometimes fun and other times not so fun. Whether you’re not convinced that it helps you or you just don’t appreciate being bugged with correction options even when it’s not the case, you might want to turn it off at times.


In this article, we’re going to show you how to quickly access and control the autocorrect function on your smartphone:

  1. Begin by turning on your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus device;
  2. Launch any app where the keyboard is normally active, where you can type in texts;
  3. Near the left Space Bar look for the Dictation Key;
  4. Select and hold it;
  5. Select the Settings option;
  6. Browse until you find the Smart Typing feature;
  7. Under it, select on Predictive Text and disable it;
  8. Look around for all the other extra options, such as punctuation marks suggestions or auto-capitalization and adjust those ones as well;
  9. Leave the menus and get back to typing texts.


Once you did all that, you should no longer see the Autocorrect function interfering with your typing. Just bear in mind that all the steps from above are instructions on how to turn off the Autocorrect function when using the default keyboard of your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus. If you’re using any other keyboard, the steps may be a bit different, though not to the point that you won’t be able to recognize your options.

We trust you can handle these settings for pretty much any third-party keyboard. And remember, whenever you will want to turn the Autocorrect back on, retake the above steps and enable Predictive Text as well as all the other extra features that you initially disabled.
