Me and few of my friends have this issue. Keyboard predictive word feature isn't working after the latest Android update (about a few days ago...). I am using this feature very often and really on it a lot. I have found some solutions like checking for updates of both keyboard and languages as well as resetting the keyboard to default, I have done it all and it still isn't working. It is definitely due to update so please try to fix this problem.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I just fixed this very annoying problem after nothing suggested worked, so I poked around. Go to the settings cog from a texting screen, click on languages, update whatever language you speak. Worked for me!
Finally got mine sorted. You need to go into settings on messaging. Go onto manage language input. Click onto English (UK) or what other languages needed. Apply the settings and you will be able to click onto predictive text after that. Hope this has helped
Is this really a thing? ...but I have a S7. i tried it. of course, no effect. Darn. I loved my predictive text. it disappeared a few months ago. no reason. i didn't do a thing. i want it back. somebody stole it. they need to go to jail.
