    Default How to stop auto correct / spell check when typing a url in hangouts?

    This is very annoying and I'm amazed that searching google and forums doesn't seem to find anyone else frustrated by this!

    Problem Description:
    When using Google Hangouts to text on my Nexus 5, every time I enter a web url the string is spell checked and becomes un-clickable.

    Example:
    If I type: "whatismyandrioidversion.com" into a txt/sms chat using hangouts, the string is spellchecked and auto corrected to "what is my android version.com".
    So, then I have to go through a very annoying process of deleting the spaces between each word and fixing the url before I send the message.

    I'm new to Android and would appreciate anyone able to give me some relief on this!

    Thank YOU!

    Exceeder, thank you for your response. I should have clarified my desired result: I want spell check to inspect my typing everywhere except when I am typing a URL.

    In other words, spell check needs to be able to recognize a URL and not try to correct it.

    I am suspecting this would be a feature recommendation and oppty for KitKat to be improved!

    Anyone know the best way to communicate to the proper developer team for suggesting improvements in KitKat?
