The Autocorrect on the Google Pixel or Pixel XL is a great feature to know how to use. Autocorrect was created with the idea to help fix typos or other spelling errors that you make when typing on your smartphone. But Autocorrect can sometimes be an issue, when it autocorrects something that is not wrong. This issue continues with the Pixel or Pixel XL as autocorrect can be a headache sometimes.
For those that don’t want to use autocorrect, there is a way to disable autocorrect on the Google Pixel or Pixel XL smartphone. You can either disable autocorrect forever or just when typing words that autocorrect may not recognize. The following is a guide on how to turn off and on Autocorrect on Google Pixel or Pixel XL.
How to turn on and off autocorrect on Google Pixel or Pixel XL:
- Turn on the Pixel or Pixel XL
- Go to a screen that shows the keyboard
- Near the left “Space Bar” select and hold the “Dictation Key”
- Then select on the “Settings” gear option
- Below the section that says “Smart Typing”, select on “Predictive Text” and disable it
- Another option is to disable different settings like auto-capitalization and punctuation marks
Later if you decide you want to know how to turn autocorrect “ON” using your Pixel or Pixel XL, all you need to do is go back to the keyboard and go to settings and change the autocorrect feature to “ON” to make things go back to normal. It’s important to note that for those that have an alternative keyboard installed through Google Play, the method to turn off and on autocorrect on the Google Pixel or Pixel XL may be a little different based upon how the keyboard is laid out.
