While having typos automatically corrected is a great tool, it can sometimes cause more problems than conveniences. If you are getting fed up with your smartphone’s auto-correct feature then read on to find out how to turn on or off autocorrect on Galaxy S8.
To completely disable auto-correct, you will have to navigate through some menus. First, from your Home screen go to your Apps menu. Afterwards click on Settings, then “General management”, and then “Language and input”.
Next, you will want to tap on the option that reads “On-screen keyboard”. It is very likely you are using the default “Samsung Keyboard” so select this. Now go to the Smart Typing option and tap on that. You will see a drop-down menu that displays several typing functions that you can enable or disable as you see fit.
The five options include “Predictive text”, “Auto replace”, “Auto spell check”, “Auto spacing” and “Auto punctuate”. We recommend leaving Auto spell check on as everyone makes typos and it can still be useful to detect them easily. Otherwise, you can disable the rest for actual Auto-correct functions. This is how you turn off autocorrect on Galaxy S8.
