When writing emails, text messages or Facebook comments on your Android device, you may want to turn off auto caps. It can be annoying to have your phone randomly capitalize words.
The good news is that this feature is easy to turn off on Android. All you need to do is follow a few steps and it will disable auto caps on your device.
1. Go to Settings
If you’re using your smartphone to write messages, you may notice that your phone randomly capitalizes words. It’s a feature that’s turned on by default in most Android devices and apps, but you can easily turn it off.
First, you should go to Settings on your device and disable auto caps. This will affect every text-based app on your phone, including Google Docs.
However, it’s important to note that this change will only be permanent if you want it to stay. So if you decide later that you want to use auto-capitalization again, you’ll need to return to your system settings and toggle it back on.
2. Select Language & Input
When using the Android keyboard, you may find that it capitalizes words automatically. This is called auto-capitalization, and it’s turned on by default in many mobile devices and apps.
But if you find yourself capitalizing random words, you can easily turn off this feature on your phone. Here’s how to do it.
You’ll need to select Language & Input, and then tap on the Settings icon next to your keyboard. Alternatively, you can also open the Settings app and then select Language & Input.
Once you’ve done that, you can then toggle the Auto-capitalization slider to the off position. On iOS, you can do the same thing by tapping on the General tab and then the Keyboard setting.
3. Select Keyboard
If you use an Android keyboard, there’s a very easy way to turn off auto caps. All you have to do is select your keyboard, tap on text correction, and toggle off the Auto Caps button.
There are a few reasons why your phone may randomly capitalise words. It could be a glitch in the system or it could be that you have a third-party keyboard installed on your phone that has this setting enabled.
In any case, disabling this feature will impact every text-based app on your device including SMS messages and e-mails. Fortunately, it’s easily reversible.
4. Select Gboard
Google’s keyboard program, Gboard (sometimes referred to as Swype), offers auto-correction as a way to save time when typing messages. But that feature can be a nuisance when it suggests words that aren’t in the dictionary.
It can also offer corrections that aren’t funny or even accurate. Luckily, there are several ways to stop auto-correction in Android.
One of the most convenient is to simply slide the Backspace key on Gboard’s keyboard whenever a word comes up that’s not what you want it to be. That way, you’ll be able to erase it all in one fell swoop, without having to manually peck it out.
5. Select Text Correction
When you write text in Android, the on-screen keyboards will capitalize the first letter of each sentence by default. This is a feature called “auto capitalization.”
Some people may not like this autocapitalizing feature and wish to disable it. The good news is that it’s easy to do so.
To turn off auto caps on your android, open the Settings app and select Language & input or System. From there, tap Virtual keyboard.
Then, tap on the keyboard you want to disable auto-capitalization for.
Next, scroll down to the corrections section and find the toggle labeled “Auto-correction.” Toggle this switch on to disable autocapitalization for all your keyboards.
