How To Turn OFF Predictive Text On Samsung Galaxy S8 And Galaxy S9

Everybody talks about the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Predictive Text. Rumor has it that this isn’t necessarily the most useful texting feature that Samsung’s latest flagships carry.

Specifically designed as an input technology, the Predictive Text is capable of suggesting words based on the context of the message and the first typed letters. In theory, it sounds good, though, in practice, making the right predictions doesn’t always go like charm.

So comes that the wrong words make you spend more time skimming the suggestions to pick one instead of simply writing the word without interruptions. And that’s something that many would like to get rid of, even if it implies deactivating this feature.

This short tutorial will show you how to do just that, by accessing the Samsung Keyboard settings from the general menus.


To turn Off Predictive Text on Galaxy S8/S9…

  1. Swipe down the Notification shade;
  2. Enter the Settings from the gear-shaped icon at the top right;
  3. Navigate to Language & Input;
  4. Select the Samsung Keyboard entry;
  5. Browse through its dedicated features;
  6. Identify the Predictive Text;
  7. Tap on this option to automatically switch it from On to Off.


These are the 7 simple steps for getting rid of the typing predictions. As a final note, while you’re here, you can also turn off the text correction, to stop your phone from changing the words you normally use in a text. Writing messages on your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S9 should be less annoying from this moment on!
