Anyone else notice predictive text is missing? Galaxy S7 edge tmobile
Not according to this article. I won't have my S7 Edge for 2 weeks so I have to go by this.
"The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge have some amazing features on this smartphone. Predictive text on the Samsung Galaxy S7 is an input technology that suggests words based on the context of the message and the first typed letters.
This feature makes it so much easier and faster to text someone on your Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge smartphone. Below we’ll explain how to turn off predictive text on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge."
Yes, even the help menu in the phone has the instructions but option is not there. Had Samsung take a look at it and they couldn't figure it out either.
Strange, I wish I had mine to look.
Personally, I have used and love the Swiftkey beta app. It allows fast swiping and has a very efficient AI for dual word predictions (recently purchased by Microsoft). I doubt any OEM model can match it.
Swiftkey for the win!
I use Dragon/Swype on my HTC M9 now. I plan on just using it again
Started using swiftkey years ago and haven't looked back.
Have you tried the swiftkey beta? Nothing risky about it (unlike most betas) but has some very nice additional features.
Downloading now - Thanks!
Yes. It was there abd working just fine until i downloaded Nova, as everything suggested. I didnt like it, so i got rid of it, and now predictive text is gone and so it the option to turn it on... which was also there before Nova.
Im not interested in swift or swipe keys.
Try clearing your system cache
Ok. Doing that now. Thank you
Nothings working. Thanks for trying.
Oddly, I have Nova, and looked in the settings for the Samsung Keyboard, and I have predictive texting. It's even apparently turned on and I don't even use the Samsung Keyboard. Been using Swiftkey for 4 years.
Go to Settings/Language and input/Samsung keyboard, and in the window that opens up, under Smart typing, check if the " Predictive text" slider is present and turned on.
Turn off Optical Reader, the Predictive Text option should reappear. This is a known issue with Samsung. Go to Settings --> Accessibility --> (near the bottom) turn off Optical Reader.
I dont see optical reader but my predictive text slider is on..
I lost mine too with latest update. Going to Settings, Language & Input and clicking Samsung then Predictive and turning on will resolve. I also had to turn on "Auto Check Spelling" in the same section which had no language selected.
I forgot to update with what happened. Sorry. I finally found a random techy who suggested I start it in safe mode and let it be in safe mode for 4 hours then restart.
I did the safe mode thing but got impatient after 30 mins. Restarted. All brand new again.
Thank you random techy!
