My old Samsung Galaxy Tab running Android 4.2 would always show 3 word suggestions above the keyboard as I was typing. I thought it was very helpful. But my new tablet(Galaxy Tab A 8") running 8.1 doesn't have that. Can I get that back?
Let it be set to default keyboard(Samsung Keyboard).
Follow steps to turn on word's suggestions:
For Galaxy tab:
Follow the steps:
- Open Settings - Scroll down to System - Language and input-Choose Samsung keyboard.
- Under Smart typing choose Predictive text and enable it.
- Open Settings-General Managment-Language and Input-On screen keyboard-Samsung Keyboard.
- Now turn on 'Predictive text' option and again in this option turn of 'Auto replace'.
Note: Auto Replace will enable the keyboard to replace predicted words by itself and this could create problem while typing.
Downloaded the Google keyboard app. It solved the problem for me
