Bug: predictions stop working in Chrome constantly, requiring bootingAnswered
Device: Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, Android 10 with One UI 2.5
On the inside screen ("tablet" screen of the this foldable phone) the Swiftkey prediction stops working after a few uses: predictions show up properly above the keys but selecting a prediction actually doesn't fix the written erronuous text but only adds a space after the incorrectly typed text. This is clearly a bug.
It always works for one use after a boot, but soon stops working again. So I reboot a lot.
This only happens in Chrome, in the address bar and in any text fields of forms. Restarting the app (force close from settings/apps) and then restarting it from app list does not fix it, only a reboot does. It's problematic that it happens in Chrome because that is the app where I type the most. I cannot change from Chrome since it is forced to be used in our company (a multinational industrial giant) on Windows and I wish to sync the browser with my private Chrome user id on that computer.
I have no experience if prediction works properly on the front screen as I never type on it (it is too narrow to type with adult hands).
The phone has been in use for only two weeks. Removing Switfkey settings (cache + saved data) and the app and reinstallation do not fix the problem.
It is very very annoying, almost enough to stop using Swiftkey and go to the Samsung keyboard. But I'd hate to do that since I've used Swiftkey for a lot of years and it knows my writing very well know. It is great, the rare times it happens to work.
I would make a bug report but cannot find where.The app does not have a feedback option anywhere.
