Messenger app replacing a letter automatically

Member

When I type in a text thru the Messenger app it automatically changes the letter without me doing so. For instance...I commonly used the letter "U" as a shorthand for "You" like alot of people do. When I type the letter "U" and hit the space button it automatically turns it into and "I". If I do not catch this it leads to very confusing and somewhat opposite text messages from what I originally meant. How do I delete the "I" from being an automatic substitute for the "U". They are right next to each other on the keyboard so fat fingers issue is enuf to deal with already.

Are you referring to the Facebook Messenger app, the Verizon Message+ app or some other messaging app?

Knjwells, we certainly don't want you to have confusing messages. I want to ensure we are on the same page. What messenger app are you using?

Thank you, Knjwells. Is this happening with any other applications where you type? Which keyboard do you use on your device?

It does happen with other apps. FB messenger does the same thing. Google Gboard

Suspicious as it happens with other apps.  Is there an option to provide feedback to the Google Gboard app developers?

Thanks for sharing these details with us. Keyboard functions can build a database for words you like to use. This can be reset within the options itself. Have you tried resetting the Goggle keyboard to clear the saved words? BobbyN_VZW
