I have seen many times when I type in WhatsApp and press the space key 2 or more times, a period symbol is automatically added. But after I press backspace once, pressing space many times won't add the symbol.

How to remove that automatically added period (.) symbol in WhatsApp and other applications?

  • My theory is that this seems like a function of auto-correct by the keyboard you are in. Auto correct could include punctuation rules. I have seen auto-correct to be superceded if an "edit" is initiated via backspacing and undos. Look into the active rules within "Language and Input" for your keyboard on the device. – wbogacz Apr 1 '18 at 8:43

That is not only on WhatsApp. It is everywhere when you double click space bar, a dot will occur. You need to configure it with your keyboard settings on Android, or simply reset your keyboard settings.

  • Thanks i found a option in preference-->Double space full stop when i switch to off that option my problem is solve – user9373184 Apr 1 '18 at 8:57
