Huawei P20 and P20 Pro: How To Turn ON And OFF Autocorrect

These days, pretty much any smartphone from the market has the Autocorrect feature and so does your Huawei P20 or Huawei P20 Pro. While some might have a lot of nasty things to say about it, the reason why it’s such a common feature is that developers still consider it very useful. If you think of it, who wouldn’t want to have any typo or spelling mistake fixed instantly?

Before you make yourself the wrong impression, we suggest you test it. Some of its autocorrect measures might please you while others might make you want to give up on it. If you decide it brings no use to you, we will personally show you how to get rid of it. Until then, however, we strongly advise you to give it a try, ignoring whatever else you’ve heard about it so far.


To Turn Autocorrect On, Take The Following Steps On Huawei P20 Or P20 Pro:

  1. Turn on the device and access its keyboard from any app;
  2. Tap and hold the Dictation Key from that keyboard;
  3. Hit the Settings option as soon as it shows up;
  4. Look for the Smart Typing entry and identify the Predictive Text option from underneath it;
  5. Make sure that this option is set to On if you want it to be active.

Please note that the instructions from above apply to any Huawei P20 or Huawei P20 Pro that still uses the default keyboard. In case you have already downloaded a third-party keyboard from the Store, these steps might be slightly different, depending on that keyboard.


Also, from within the Smart Typing menu, you can control other typing options as well, like the Auto-Capitalization or the Punctuation Marks. Obviously, by controlling it we don’t just mean turning it On, as suggested above, but also turning it Off.

In other words, when you want to disable the Autocorrect from your Huawei P20 or Huawei P20 Pro, you’d better retake all these steps, all the way to the Smart Typing menu. From there, uncheck the box of the Predictive Text option and that was it!
