Predictive Text

Predictive Text gives the user suggestions on what words they are going to type next based on what you have entered. It also tries to predict the word you are typing as you are typing it. This allows for correct spelling and faster typing.


There are a couple of options that goes alongside, Predictive Text:

●     Auto Replace: as you type, you'll see suggested words that may come next. Tap the space bar or a punctuation mark to enter the suggested text.

●     Text shortcuts: Create shortcuts for frequently used phrases. Type a shortcut to see it as a text suggestion. For example, you could set "example@samsung.com" to be suggested whenever you type "email".


See below on how to turn on Predictive Text:
