We all know that WhatsApp is an instant messaging app. While you send a message to your friends and family, you would not want them to misinterpret it based on the wrong spelling. Instead of checking your dictionary, allow your keyboard to match the correct words with the misspelled words. Auto-Correction is a feature that corrects misspellings as you type. The feature uses your keyboard dictionary to spellcheck words while you’re typing, correcting misspelled words for you automatically. To use it, just type in a text field and click the send button. The correct spelled word will be sent rather than the misspelled word. Therefore, if you have issues with spelling words correctly and you need help, turn on the autocorrect feature in your WhatsApp.
