  1. 1. Go to any app where the keyboard pops up.

    2. Hit the cog button.

    then figure out how to update the language that you use

    3. Go to Languages and types

    4. Go to Manage input languages

    5. Update your language (English)

    6. It’s fixed!

    I did this on my Galaxy s9 on 09/02/20.

  2. Fixed the predictive typing through DEX. See keyboard bottom right. Clicked on it, update Samsung keyboard and there ya go.

  3. I had an old Windows PDA Personal Digital Assistant Phone years ago before the 1st iPhone was released & it had a considerably better keyboard & predictive text than any Android device I’ve ever owned. Which I know isn’t really saying much, especially as Android predictive text gets worse & worse as time goes by, I’d swear it was way better many versions of Android ago.

  4. The S9+ keyboard sucks, and it continually auto-corrects spellings that don’t need fixing. The worst example is correcting the word “Rays”, to “Ray’s”, when talking about the Baseball team. I spell it correctly, and Samsung males me look retarded by changing it to a possessive form. If I wanted an apostrophe, I would put it in! I’ve fixed it repeatedly, and Samsung keeps changing the correct spelling. Sometimes in a hurry, and I miss the Samsung mistake. How stupid is Samsung? I would wager the word Rays is used far more often than Ray’s, especially since they have the best current record in MLB! There seems to be no way to fix the problem, and Samsung doesn’t offer a decent help link for this issue.

  5. It was easier just to install Gboard app for a different keyboard. VOILA’ problem fixed.

    factory Galaxy S9+ keyboard SUCKED!

  6. Have tried all of the above…Nothing worked! Ready to chuck this samsung in the bush!!!!! Come on Samsung. WHATS WITH YOU

    1. dear this method was very help full i try it and my problem was slove

  7. Mother-in-Law’s Galaxy E Tab’s Samsung Keyboard stopped auto-correcting properly after an update.
    Neither of these fixed corrected the issue.
    I realised later that she had set the default language to English (Canada) and that the predictive text is only available for English (US).
    Changing the Samsung Keyboard’s default language to English (US) fixed the issue.
    Hopefully this helps others with similar similar issues.

    1. Thanks heaps!!!
      I had tried all the other suggestions and nothing worked.
      I did have it set to English (Australia) and after changing it to English (US) it now works.
      Thanks again.

    1. Same for me, and I also have Galaxy Tab A. None of the setting will work. I’ve tried both methods, and others. Swipe to type, predicted text , spell check, none of them will work no matter what I try. This only started happening after I updated.

  8. Tried everything, none of them worked on my Gala y Tab A. VERY TICKED OFF, Samsung! Now I have to hit every letter and rely on my own spellings?.

    1. Interesting, when I tried the second option (predictive texting off, restart phone, predictive texting back on) I got an old fashioned three letter each key keyboard. But predictive texting does work now on it, which is a huge huge relief. How can Samsung be so rubbbish but BIG THANKS to Technobezz. Was driving me mad.

  9. Thanks but no joy….. I’m using my Samsung Keyboard cover now and no predictive lie at all….(the spelling’s strictly on me…)

    1. My samsung tablet lost predictive text..go to language and input…choose languages…find the page that allows you to download your language…there will be a blue download arrow next to language…download your language…I believe that is a dictionary…keyboard predictive text works fine

      1. OMG, GIZMO, THANK YOU! Re-downloading my language worked for me!!! All of my keyboard settings wouldn’t work no matter what I tried, I can’t believe downloading the language was all that was needed! THANK YOU!!

  10. I tried the second method on my Samsung S7 Edge and it didn’t work. Not ready to delete and reset everything so I am just going to use another keyboard app. Very disappointed with this problem with Samsung.
