If you’d like to experience using this predictive text method that lets you type simpler and faster, check out this guide!

 

To learn how to turn predictive text On/Off on Galaxy Note 8…

  1. You have to know where to find the Predictive Text settings;
  2. Unlock the device and head to the General Menu, for the Settings section;
  3. Select Language & Input;
  4. Under the Samsung Keyboard sub-menu, you should see a feature labeled as Predictive Text – that’s your feature.

One of the coolest extra features is the one you can use to set up automatic insertions with special time delays. To be more specific, you select a special character – something that isn’t easily accessible on the keyboard of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. You associate that special character to a regular key – let’s say the A key. And when you long press for a specific period of time the A key, your keyboard will automatically insert that special character. That’s a welcomed shortcut, isn’t it?

 

Yet another cool feature that you might consider is the Autocorrect. If you turn on the text correction, it will help you edit what you type on the go. If you happen to be unhappy with how the feature handles some corrections, you can also create your own dictionary, instructing the keyboard on what words to correct and what words to keep as such. Without a doubt, this is an entire exciting world of options and settings that you should explore on your Samsung Galaxy Note 8!
