If you’re using Google Keyboard and you wish to create Auto Text like in BlackBerry, follow these steps:
- On your Xiaomi phone, find and launch the Settings app.
- Tap General settings > Language & input.
- Tap Personal dictionary.
- Tap a language.
- Tap Add.
- Enter a long phrase and your shortcut text. For example, “see you later” and “cul”
- Tap OK and that’s it.
- Every time you type the shortcut, the first suggestion will be the long phrase. Tap it to use it to replace the shortcut.
Note: This method won’t work on SwiftKey keyboard.
Note: The steps here were written for a Xiaomi device running MIUI V5. If you’re having a different version of MIUI, there’s a possibility that the steps and screenshots will be different.
