Hi everyone, I messaged support a few weeks ago to ask them how I can turn off predictions within the Calendar app.
It's a pet peeve of mine how it tries to predict whatever you're doing; say if you go to enter an event and type 'So' (for example) a huge annoying dropdown appears with every past event you've ever had that had the combination 'So' within the title. It covers all of the parts of the screen you have to put information into and to get it to go away you have to close your keyboard and tap at the bottom of the screen. (Like I said, pet peeve but it really bugs me 😂)
Support gave me instructions on turning off preditcive text; which was not what I was asking but I understand the confusion. I further explained it's not a keyboard related thing, but the calendar app remembering past entered events (as opposed to predictive text which offers random words based on your entry). For the record, I did try to turn off predictive text, but as expected, this only disabled predictive text. I told support that it didn't work and wasn't what I meant but they stopped replying.
The interface that appears covers up all of the areas relevant for entering your event and it really annoys me as someone who uses their calendar app a lot!
I can't find anything within Settings or within Calendar's settings to turn this off. If anyone knows please kindly let me know 🙏 I'm on Android version 11.
Thank you! 🤗
