Your phone suggests words as you write, to help you write quickly and more accurately. Word suggestions are available in several languages.
- When you start writing a word, your phone suggests possible words. When the word you want is shown in the suggestion bar, tap the word. To see more suggestions, swipe left.
If the suggested word is in bold, your phone automatically uses it to replace the word you wrote. If the word is wrong, tap it, and you see the original word and a few other suggestions.

Add a new word to the dictionary
