It has often happened to all of us that we encounter misspellings while typing on our Android phones and sending messages to the audience. Therefore, smartphone makers have put the ability to automatically correct typos on these devices. But sometimes this automatic correction, instead of making our work easier, slows down our typing speed and has its own nerves. In fact, most of the time, instead of correcting the spelling of the words, this feature misdiagnoses and replaces the word we are looking for with another word!
Most of us have experienced the same mistakes many times when using the Autocorrect feature. If this feature causes you more nerves and confusion than it improves your typing performance, we recommend that you join us in the continuation of this article, because we want to teach you how to disable auto-correction in Android.
How to turn off autocorrect android in Gboard
Most Android devices use the Google keyboard or Gboard by default. If you also use this keyboard on your smartphone, just follow the steps below to disable the auto-correction feature.
- First of all, go to the Settings app .
- Swipe down to find System . Once found, click on this option as shown below.
Now select the Language & input option.
Then click on Virtual keyboard .
In this section, a list of all the keyboards that you have installed on your device will be displayed. Just go to the keyboard you are currently using and select it (our option here is Gboard).
Immediately after accessing the Gboard settings, look for the Text Correction section and select it.
Drag the opened page until you find the Auto-correction option. Once you find this option, just turn off the auto-correction feature by disabling the key next to it; Of course, instead of disabling auto-correction, you can enable the Undo auto-correct on backspace option to return your typed phrase to the way you typed it each time you use the space bar to type words.
- This completes your task of disabling auto-correction. Now you can chat with your loved ones easily and without worrying about weird typos.
Note: If the auto-correction feature is currently disabled on your phone and you would like to take advantage of it, just repeat the above steps and enable auto-correction again.

Now click on the Language option.
Select the Text correction option.
From the menu that appears, go to Auto-correct to check the available options. Usually, the Chrooma keyboard has a few more options than the Gboard.
This section allows you to turn off the auto-correction feature altogether or adjust the auto-correction intensity to your liking. You can change this intensity from the Modest, Aggressive, and Very Aggressive options.
Note that the above steps vary slightly depending on the type of keyboard you are using, but you will find more or less the same options in the keyboard app menu.
