How to turn off Predictive text on Galaxy S8

Predictive text on your brand new Galaxy S8 can be a real pain if you don’t know how to disable it. Usually, it takes a while to master a new keyboard on your brand new Android smartphone. Samsung has revamped the keyboard on the Galaxy S8 because of a new UI. It’s very hard for the users to type properly since the keyboard’s predictive text automatically replaces your words and changes the whole context of your conversation. It is very important to turn off predictive text if you don’t want to go through the struggle of correcting the words again and again. Turning off the predictive text will give you the freedom of chatting the way you want. It won’t replace your words, it won’t auto-correct what you’re typing.

Predictive text on the Galaxy S8 is very easy to disable. All you have to do is to jump to the keyboard settings on your phone and turn it off. If you are facing difficulties while finding this option, then here are a few steps to turn off predictive text on Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.

Turn off Predictive text on Galaxy S8

  1. On your Samsung Galaxy S8, go to settings.
  2. In settings, scroll down and find General Management.
  3. In General Management, tap Language and input.
  4. Now tap On-screen keyboard > Samsung Keyboard.
  5. In Samsung Keyboard settings, turn off Predictive text and any other option if you want to.
  6. That’s all.

So that’s how simple it was to get rid of the predictive text on your new Galaxy S8. If the new keyboard fails to impress you, you can also install a third party keyboard like Google Keyboard or the Swiftkey keyboard. Third party keyboards like Swiftkey also offer a variety of themes that are very easy on the eyes.
