One ui 2.1 ruined keyboard suggestions

Highlighted

Before updating, when I used to start typing an email address (the first 3 letters) I would get email address suggestions pop up at the top of the keyboard, therfore not having to type the whole address everytime. This was very useful and It also used to work for other words I used alot, e.g. my name. I'm quite angry this is no longer working.

 

I can't find a setting that relates to this. 

 

Any suggestions on how I get this back?

Hello @1Leigh 

 

I'm on the One Ui 2.1 update.

 

When I start typing an email address it does show up which I assume is drawn from the emails stored in my phone or from me typing in the email address since the uodage which predictive text then saves.

 

i.e I typed in lee. and the whole email address came up.I typed in lee. and the whole email address came up.Is the email address saved in your contacts so that the phone can bring it up or have you typed it in before so your predictive text brings it up. ?

 

The new One Ui 2.1 updates clears all your previous predictive text that was saved so you have to start again. Well that's what happened on mine.

 

 

I'll have a look at my settings for you.

Hi, thanks for this.

 

It was retrieving the addresses from predictive text. Now that I've entered them a few times it is working again. A bit frustrating that the update clears predictive text.

 

Cheers

I agree but on the flip side its cleared any words that seemed to linger that I either spelled wrong and it wouldn't properly delete by long pressing in it and all the emoticons in the saved area !

In older versions of android i.e oreo i think there was an option to back up keyboard settings but I can't see that option now on Android 10.

 

For me its a good and bad thing.

 

Bad is I've lost some words I use quite regularly but I'll get back after using the keyboard.

 

Good is its cleared all the words that seemed to linger even when I used the long press method to delete them.
