    When typing in Gmail I used to always get a auto capital letter to begin a new sentence after I typed a period, question mark, etc. I DO have this option turned on for the stock Samsung keyboard that I am using in the phone settings. It has always worked fine. Recently, however, it stopped working. I am on AT&T, my brother has an S7 Edge on Sprint an the same is happening on his phone, BUT - - it works fine on his LG V20. Any ideas? Did the new 11/30 Gmail update break something for just the S7 Edge? Frustrating!

    Perhaps a cache clear for the gmail app?

    Nope, no effect. But thanks for the reply.

    Isn't that a keyboard thing? You're saying it only affects Gmail?

    I just checked on my phone and everything functions normally but I'm using Swiftkey.

    Strangely, yes, it seems to just be a Gmail thing. Typing a text message using the stock Samsung app still works fine (auto capitalization after the period).

    I am having the same problem, just started, and is only in gmail, no issues in texting either. ~?~ I have a galaxy s4, so it's not device driven. Unless it's affecting all Samsung products, but that seems unlikely. ...I have no answer, came here looking for one, but thought I'd mention since you though maybe it was S7 edge related. Odd

    Welcome to Android Central! This might be due to the latest update to Android System Webview. Updates to this app have caused issues with various keyboards in the past (on HTC, as well as Samsung phones). Go to the Play Store and look for Android System Webview, then tap Uninstall, which will revert it to the factory version. Does the problem go away? If so, don't update Android System Webview until the next time Google pushes an update (you can keep track in the Play Store's app page, where it tells you when it was last updated). Android System Webview is still important for security, so it's preferable to keep it as up to date as possible.

    Thanks, that did the trick! My issue was not getting a period after hitting the space bar twice, on both my HTC M8 and Galaxy S7 Edge.
