Hi. I have read all the posts and tried all the solutions. None are working. My predictive text in smart typing is showing as on but does not work. Please help, am losing the will to text and doing voice notes instead!  Thank you

@1Papillon: To troubleshoot your issue please go to Settings > General Management > Language and Input > On-Screen Keyboard > Samsung Keyboard > Smart Typing > Make Sure that Predictive Text is toggled on > Back > About Samsung Keyboard > Tap the 'i' in the top right > Storage > Clear Cache > Clear Data > Restart your phone. Please be aware that this will remove any personal settings from your keyboard. Let me know how you get on.

Predictive text is working spasmodically it's only selecting words with the 1st letter Such as if you press the number for the letter G and words Beginning with the letter g come up but not words with the letter H or I.

@Magsie006: Which phone do you have, and what is the current Android version (located in Settings > About Phone). Have you attempted any of the steps in my post above?

This worked for me...Thanks so much.  I have been trying for months to active predictive text using the correct activation pathway and nothing worked.  This did instantly. 🙂
