From all the special features that a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Note 9 offers you in terms of text typing and editing, the Autocorrect is by far the most controversial one. That’s because a significant number of Note 8 and Note 9 users have noticed that its corrections are sometimes wrong.
In case you were wondering, the Autocorrect was particularly designed to track and edit whatever looks like a typo or a spelling error. It does so automatically, as long as it is turned on, which is why people want to know how do you turn off the Autocorrect on Samsung Note 9 and Note 8:
- The instructions begin, like anything else, with unlocking your smartphone;
- Since it’s a keyboard related feature, you should also access the keyboard – you can do this from any app that works with the keyboard, without exception;
- Look at the Space Bar and, on its left side, you should be able to spot a so-called Dictation Key;
- Select and hold that key, then tap on the Settings icon;
- Look for the Smart Typing option;
- Select it and, in there, look for the Predictive Text option;
- Disable the Predictive Text feature by tapping on it – the status should change from On to Off by default.
That’s how you do it, how you turn off the autocorrect on Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Note 8. The last mention must be revelatory for what’s probably your next question – how do you turn the autocorrect back on, after a while? You repeat all those steps and reactivate the Note 8 and Note 9 Predictive Text by simply tapping on it.
It’s simple and, as of this moment, you no longer have to worry that your messages have been edited with mistakes or that the people you text to will have to wonder what you meant. From now on, the only mistakes that will show up in your messages will be the ones that you personally write.
