Samsung Galaxy S9 And Galaxy S9 Plus: Turn Off Autocorrect

It’s been a while now since we’ve come to witness the introduction of the Autocorrect as an essential feature of the keyboards from all kinds of smartphones. You might have chosen a brand-new Samsung Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus for yourself, but that doesn’t change the fact that the Autocorrect is there, waiting to tweak your words and sentences, as you type, making more or less appropriate – but, most importantly, automatic – corrections. Read on to learn how to turn off autocorrect on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus.


Is There A Way To Turn OFF Autocorrect On Galaxy S9 And S9 Plus Devices?

This is the question we get to hear early on from new Galaxy S9 users. Whether you can’t remember how you were doing it on older Galaxy versions or you never knew it, allow us to explain the process. Assuming you kept the default Samsung keyboard, the required steps are as follows:

  1. Turn on the screen of the device;
  2. Access an app with a keyboard;
  3. Tap the Dictation Key from the keyboard;
  4. Select that small Settings icon;
  5. Select the Predictive Text option from within the Smart Typing list of features;
  6. When you tap on it, the Predictive Text will change its status and you get to decide if you want to keep it On or Off;
  7. When you’ve settled on this one, don’t ignore the similar features listed in there, like the ones that insert punctuation marks or automatically capitalize your first words of the sentences.


We’ll end this tutorial right here because our mission was accomplished. In case you are confused, let us make it clearer: to adjust or to turn off Autocorrect on Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus, all you need to do is to adjust or to disable the Predictive Text option.

If you can’t seem to find your way with our indications, remember that these are for the Samsung keyboard, not for any random keyboard you’ve downloaded from the Play Store.
