Samsung Galaxy S8 autocorrect issues mean you’ll simply type messages that individuals won’t perceive. This is often very true after you type quickly while not tapping on the suggestion that seems at the top of the keyboard.
We will show you ways to fix Galaxy S8 autocorrect issues by ever-changing your keyboard settings and installing a much better Galaxy S8 keyboard on your phone which will automatically use the autocorrect, rather than creating you tap once more to use the correct word.
If you are coming from another Android phone or from the iPhone this will help you type faster and better on the Galaxy S8.
How to Fix Autocorrect Problems in Samsung Galaxy S8
- Do make sure that your Galaxy S8 autocorrect settings are configured properly. By default, they should include autocorrect support, but not spellchecking.
- With the keyboard on the screen, tap and hold on the microphone, then tap on the settings button. Now tap the button on the right to turn on Spell check.
- With Spell Check and Autocorrect on, you will see options to type better, but you need to tap on the words to send the auto corrected version and you also need to tap on misspelled words to fix them.
- This means if you are quickly typing a message and then tapping send like you can on an iPhone, you can easily send a garbled message that not even you understand.
Instead, you should install a better Android keyboard that will automatically fix the words as you type. With the Google Gboard installed, you can enter the autocorrected word by pressing the space bar instead of pausing to tap on the top.
- Download Google Gboard to your Galaxy S8. This is a free app on the Google Play Store and as the name suggests it is made by Google.
- Open the app and follow the directions to install the keyboard. This will ask you to turn on the keyboard in the Galaxy S8 keyboard settings. You will see a warning that this keyboard can collect your text, except for passwords and credit card numbers. This is a legit app from Google so there is no need to worry about nefarious purposes.
- On the next screen, tap on English (US) Gboard. You will then be prompted to allow access to your contacts, which allows you to turn on an option to suggest contact names.
- Unlike the Samsung keyboard, when you tap the spacebar, it will insert the autocorrected word instead of the mistyped word. This will fix most Galaxy S8 autocorrect problems without spending any money or changing how you type.
