Turn off Autocorrect or Predictive text on the Android phone
The autocorrect feature comes by default enabled with a new Android device. It’s a keyboard setting that checks what you are typing and corrects it automatically.
The Autocorrect feature corrects your typing, Capitalization errors, and also corrects misspelled words. It also adds symbols and inserts text. Well, all this sounds good and it’s very useful for some people but for some it’s very irritating because this feature when you already know what to type and what is the correct spelling it will automatically add words which you don’t want and every time you need to correct it and some time you type any long message in hurry you will find many problems after completing it and if you have sent that message some time it’s very embarrassing. So, it’s better to disable the feature and get control of your typing.
