Taking things one at a time with your brand-new Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus? That’s what we thought too… And because we expect you to want to text a lot, from all your chat apps, we thought about reminding you a cool feature that you get to use on the Samsung stock keyboard app.
That’s right, pay attention to the part with the “stock app”, which means just what you suspect: using the keyboard installed on your smartphone by default.
In other words, if you haven’t installed a third-party app, you can empower your typing with the special auto correction option. Samsung prefers to call it Predictive Text and that’s the name you’ll find in its menus, but what it does is to compare what you seem to be typing with your typing history. If it detects a misspelled word, it can automatically correct it for you. Try it and do not worry, in case it starts making inappropriate corrections, you can always edit it or shut it off.
The Path To Configuring Smart Typing And Autocorrect On Galaxy S9 Or Galaxy S9 Plus…
Keyboard Settings >> Smart Typing >> Predictive Text >> Set To On Or Off.
Note that if you’re also planning on making use of all the other smart typing options, aside from the Predictive Text, you have a couple of other features listed in there. Check the automatic insertion of punctuation marks, the auto-capitalization, or whatever else you’re curious about.
Now that we’ve ruled out the most important part, the matter is still not 100% solved. Some of you, new to Android devices or new to the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, might have another question, just as important: how do you get to the keyboard settings?
Obviously, if you’re not familiarized with this first step of the process, you’ll be getting nowhere. So, to be sure that we’ve given you all the necessary information, let’s detail this aspect. The settings of your keyboard can simply be accessed from the keyboard itself…
To get there, you can bring up literally any app installed on your smartphone that supports the typing function, meaning that it will let you extend the keyboard when you need to type something. On that keyboard, you have a special Dictation Key that normally sits right next to the Space Bar. When you find it, long press on that key to make a context menu pop up. Finally, within that menu, you have the well-known gear icon, the one that will take you to the Settings menu.
From the keyboard’s settings to the Smart Typing submenu and the Predictive Text, you only have two or three straightforward steps to put into practice. We assume there’s no need to insist too much on this aspect, though, we’re going to say it anyway: regardless if you want to activate or to deactivate, the Predictive Text or any other typing function listed in there, you just need to get to it and tap on it. The selected feature will change its toggle from On to Off and from Off to On, so, operate these changes on the Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus anytime you want!
