Smartphones evolve and new generations show up on the market but some things stay the same. One of them is the presence of the Autocorrect feature, something that Samsung, just like many other manufacturers, has been using with its devices for a long time. So, it goes without saying that your new Samsung Galaxy S8 or Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus comes with this feature as well.
If your feelings about it haven’t changed at all, it only seems natural that you still want to get rid of the Autocorrect. That’s because the way that this option works hasn’t changed at all either. And there are instances when it tends to mess with your conversation instead of making a positive contribution to it.
Whether you want to disable it right away or you did that before and now you’re not sure how to enable it once again, we’ve got you covered.
To turn the autocorrect On/Off on Galaxy S8/S8 Plus:
- Launch whatever app where you normally use the Samsung’s built-in keyboard;
- Access the keyboard and look on its left side, near the space key, for the Dictation Key;
- Tap on it;
- Tap on the Settings gear, next;
- Select the option labeled as Predictive Text from the Smart Typing section;
- Tap on the Predictive Text to turn it off;
- Turn off any other feature available in there, if you want – look for auto-capitalization, punctuation marks etc;
- Leave the menus and continue typing without problems.
As you can expect, these are the same steps for when you want to reactivate the Autocorrect or anything else you have deactivated in the previous step. Suffices to tap on the inactive options and your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus will start using them all over again.
