Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge: How to Enable and Use Auto Replace Feature in Samsung Keyboard in Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow

When the predictive text feature in the Samsung keyboard in your Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is enabled, you can use the auto replace feature to have your phone automatically replaces or corrects the word you're typing with the most probable word when you tap the space bar or a punctuation key. But, you have to remember that this feature is only available while using the qwerty, azerty, and qwertz keyboards, not the 3x4 keyboard.


How to enable the auto replace feature in the Samsung keyboard?
Assuming that the predictive text feature is enabled, you can turn on the auto replace feature in the Samsung keyboard by using the following steps:
  1. On any screen, swipe down the top of the screen to open up the notification panel and then tap at the top right to go to the settings menu.
  2. Scroll down to the screen to find Language and input and then tap it.
  3. Tap Samsung keyboard.
    Alternatively, when you're entering text, you can quickly go to the Samsung keyboard settings by long tapping the key in the left side of the space bar and then tap .
  4. Tap Auto replace.
  5. If the Auto replace feature is off, tap the ON/OFF switch to turn it on. The switch turns  when it's enabled.
  6. Tap the ON/OFF switch next to the required input language to enable the auto replace feature for the language. When the switch turns , means the auto replace of the selected input language is turned on. As the example, we'll turn on the auto replace feature for the English(UK).


How to use the auto replace feature in the Samsung keyboard?
See the following steps as the example of using this feature when entering text with the Samsung qwerty keyboard while using the English(UK) as the input language:
  1. Go to the screen or app where you can enter text, e.g., when composing a new text message in the Messages app.
  2. As you're typing a word, your phone will provide you some predicted text for the word you're typing at the top of the keyboard and highlight the most probable word.
  3. If the highlighted word in the predicted text bar is the word you want to type, tap the space bar or a punctuation key to automatically replace or correct the word you're typing with the highlighted word.
  4. If the highlighted word in the predicted text bar is not the word you want to type, tap to view all predicted text and then tap the required word to manually complete or correct the word you're typing with the selected word.
