Samsung Keyboard’s new update might reduce your typos

Samsung Keyboard has been the default keyboard on Galaxy smartphones and tablets for years, but for most of that time, it hasn’t been all that great compared to Gboard and other alternatives. The keyboard has been slowly improving, though, and now Samsung is rolling out another update that might reduce your typos.

Samsung Keyboard version is now rolling out on the Galaxy Store, and according to the changelog, it’s a substantial update. The main change is an improved ‘Suggest Text Corrections’ feature, which was originally added with the One UI 4.0 system upgrade, and automatically corrects grammar and phrases with green underlines. Even if you have that feature off, the Samsung Keyboard update improves “typos that occurred often when using specific keys.”


This update fixes some issues with the Clipboard too, which displays your most recent clipboard items for easy access. Pasting with the Samsung Note app has been fixed, as well as a bug where the Clipboard wouldn’t appear with custom themes and dark mode.

Samsung Keyboard v5.4.70.25 is rolling out to devices now through the Galaxy Store, so if you don’t have it already, it should appear soon.

Samsung Keyboard Changelog

1. Get your spelling and grammar corrected when writing English sentences.
– The “Suggest Text Corrections” feature, provided from ONE UI 4.0, has been improved to be even smarter.
– A feature to turn the setting on or off by app is provided.
– Turn it off when you are using chatting apps with friends, and turn it on when you are using apps in which you write long sentences.

2. We adjusted the parts that varied by country to match as much as possible.
– The parts that varied by country, such as settings, symbols, language change buttons, etc., have been adjusted to be the same. You can now find the same Samsung Keyboard on Galaxy phones purchased abroad.
