Autocompletion Addon

This addon implements four new buttons to the chat user interface for Minecraft Pocket Edition which makes typing both commands and normal sentences much easier. All of the added features are ones which already exist for the PC versions of Minecraft, but for unknown reasons haven’t been ported to Pocket Edition yet.

Creator: RandomityGuy (Discord: RandomityGuy#3539)
Updated: 31 August, 2018 (read changelog)

How does it work?

By using this addon you will be able to select previously typed commands, autocomplete words as well as using a few other nifty features. Open the text chat window to start using the new features.

  • Shift + Tab Key (↑Tab): Use this button to switch between multiple options (e.g. if you write birch then you can use this button to switch between birch_doorbirch_fence_gate and so on)
  • Tab Key: Autocomplete certain commands/words, e.g. /give MCPEDL birch_f then press Tab Key to autocomplete it
  • Previous Key (Arrow Up): Select previous command(s) written
  • Next Key (Arrow Down): If you missed the command you wanted to type while rapid touching previous key then you can use this button.


  • Updated for 1.6

  3. JY GamingMC says:

    doesnt work for command blocks :/ pls fix and your twitter

  4. Twitchy says:

    Very helpful ^-^

  5. S4/\/\ says:

    Yes! Perfect for the new command Blocks!

    • S4/\/\ says:

      Sadly not😓 Don’t work in Command Blocks so it isn’t as useful as it could be.

    • RandomityGuy says:

      Unfortunately command blocks don’t support autocomplete at all. Try making a command in the chat window and copy it in the command block. Only way to do this is by additional keyboards.

  6. Derp says:

    Will this work with command blocks?

  7. RandomHumanYT says:

    Can u pleaase find/make an F5 button addon? Like, where you can switch between POVs 🙏🏼

  8. Dat MinerVN says:

  9. ChaoticFlame says:

    Dude! Thank you so much! This was much needed for the mobile version of the game, good job!!

  10. The McGuy says:

    Amazing There’s nothing wrong I have an INJOO Phablet= Phone And Tablet THX

  11. Jamin says:

    THANK YOU! I NEEDED THIS! Is it possible you can make this work for command block, too?

  12. RandomityGuy says:

    I will try to make one for commands blocks too tho. It doesn’t work for them because the ui files for both of them are different. Will try to port the autocomplete to the command blocks with the tab keys. That’s for the next version.

    • Andreas513 says:

      Yes, please do that, i want it for soo….sooooo long. If you that, i would be so happy and proud of you

  13. Timmy says:

    Wow, this is very useful. I will try it out. It gets annoying having to type out commands, this will make it quite a bit easier.

  14. Rohan Kashyap says:

    This addon is really verry Helpfull

  15. ThePvPGuyFTW says:

    Very helpful! Can I use it for my addon? 😀

    First need permission! And I also was coding this, pretty hard, but still, you did it man!

  16. TM03YT says:

    Can you make a paste button? I need to paste in some commands on my IOS device

    • Noooo says:

      You already have it
      Just copy something and press that copy paste button on the top left of your apple keyboard

  17. Pls do ir says:

    Can U Pls Make It At The Right Side And Make It Just A Up And Down Arrow Pls

    • RandomityGuy says:

      Fixed that bug. You probably had GUI scale to minimum. Now it won’t change the position(right side) when you change GUI scale.

  18. TheHDCrafterYT says:

    Hey, its a perfect addon. Just try to gix that you can use it in the commandblock and try to fix the not working hide chat messages button

  19. ShadowOfWolf says:

    This is the best and the most useful addon i’ve ever seen. I use commands very much, and i was angry that my keyboard doesn’t have a tab key. Great job and thank you! ^_^

  20. Emanology says:

    Can u add a paste button for iOS users??? 😃😃😃

    • RandomityGuy says:

      It already exists on the iOS 9+ QuickType keyboard.

    • Nate says:

      You can download a copy paste keyboard in the AppStore and activate it in setting. This is a good way to copy paste camands. It works on iOS I haven’t tested android though.

  21. Guy says:

    Wow cool

  22. KhGamer says:

    If it close will it delete the command I wrote? This is also a great addon

    • RandomityGuy says:

      Yup. First write out your partly made command,press enter and it will show up an error. Then u can close chat and do whatever u want. When u want to finish that command, press the previous key to get that command back and then u can continue.

  23. Red Ranger says:

    Cheete am one of those people on your fnaf addon can you please add power rangers addon with the suits as armor and then the enemies as mobs and the wepons as the iron sword,bow,snowball,egg and xp bottle that would make me very happy

  24. Vexy says:

    Amazing thanks a bunch!

  25. NuggetBacon says:

    Thank you for this useful addon, this will make map making a lot easier.

  26. WolfInAWheelchair says:

    So helpful! Thx!

  27. Mega_JC says:

    GREAT!!! I’ve been waiting for this for so long. Can you make an on-screen F5 button too? It would make it easier to swap views instead of opening the long menu over and over again.

  28. xJmexx says:

    Using Hackers Keyboard would be awesome with this MCPE and this Add On 🙂 Try those guys for easy typing commands with this add on

  29. Zer0 Studioz says:

    I’ve been reading that it doesn’t work with command blocks. Can that be changed in the future? That’d be extremely useful for nap makers.

    • RandomityGuy says:

      I don’t think that’s entirely possible, since Win10 MCPE doesn’t support autocomplete for command blocks.

  30. Scorp says:

    Can you pls make a copy and past addon? Btw this addon was really useful!

  31. Iraklis says:

    What’s this?im not understanding

    Left or right side plz!😢😢😢😢

  33. Lachdgamerz9 says:

    Thx for this amazing add-on 😎💩👍😀🤑

  34. Kuri says:

    This is perfect, now if only you can actually see what youre typing in since in the IOS 11 update the new keyboard covers the text and it doesnt follow up with the keyboard…

  35. KingJeff314 says:

    Oh my, thanks for updating. Work had stalled on my map when you can’t repeat commands.

  36. LegoAidan10155 says:

    Thanks for updating this! It’s a lifesaving addon for command users like myself 😃

  37. Toop says:

    I love this Addon, but when the 1.2 Version came out it had a really annoying bug. When ever I had this Addon enabled it wouldn’t allow me to see what I’m typing as the keyboard covers it whenever I try. Please fix it so myself and others can enjoy this again without annoyances.

  38. Arc1Dragon says:

    When I click the download button for either pack it doesn’t load the page.

  39. Gsssddsaq says:

    Please update for 1.2.1 it doesn’t work anymore.

  40. TheHDCrafterYT says:

    Hey, I love this addon. But I am using the version 1.2.1 on my iPhone 5 and it crashes everytime I try to open the chat. plz fix ; )

  41. KingJeff314 says:

    Crashes the game it 1.2.1. Can the creator please fix it?

  42. RandomityGuy says:

    For all those people complaining about keyboard covering the chat:
    I can do nothing about it, my device is iOS 8 so my Addon works as intended for me. Even without the Addon, the keyboard would still cover the chat just cuz your device is iOS 11.
    Mojang would probably push an update to fix this soon.

    • RandomityGuy says:

      A solution I have found is when the keyboard covers your device, rotate your device (or turn it upside down). When it happens again rotate it again(or turn it right side up).
      This bug has nothing to do with 1.2. It’s because of iOS 11

  43. The Ultimate Developer says:

    No effence but this new update sucks because when I install it it crashes when I press chat

  44. XxItz_MadyxX says:

    I thought it was really bad and confusing😣

  45. Dylan says:

    There is a really annoying bug that causes the game to crash we pressing the chat button with this texture pack enabled! I’m not sure if it’s Minecraft or texture pack if it is can you see if you can fix it. Thx 🙂 I really love this texture pack

    • Hakimin_Ilhami04 says:

      Yes. I am having the same problem here. But I know it is not Minecraft because when I submit a bug report, a user said you must report third parties pack bugs to the author.

  46. Hakimin_Ilhami04 says:

    Help me! It crashes my game in My device is Samsung Galaxy J2. I really want to use this addon.

  47. TheHDCrafterYT says:

    (sorry for caps) I HAVE A TEMPORARY FIX FOR THE TEXTUREPACK! all credits still go to “RandomityGuy”. Here the download link:

  48. GoldenNova00 says:

    Pretty cool. Tho I wish someone woukd do the POV button. PvP players would LOVE that.

  49. RandomityGuy says:

    Tested out both left and right side addons and both seem to work as intended. No crashes. Also it does not work if you have UI set to classic and not pocket.

  50. Iohn says:

    Very cool addon thanks for make command type become easier:))

  51. Zachary Cantor says:

    Please make F3 button Addon
    Please. For more info location

  54. Barred says:

    This addon isn’t working on 1.2.13!
    Please update!

  55. Aceminer46 says:

    This add-on is amazing. I’ve been using it so much I can hardly play without it. Sadly, in the new update, 1.2.14, when you have this add-on applied, you are able to type, but when you try and press the button for posting your chats, it will click, but do nothing, no matter how much you click it. Could you please update for 1.2.13+?

  56. Vechrozilator says:

    The send button doesn’t work, can you please fixed that

  57. Tashdid says:

    Can you make the camera changing button add-on for pocket edition so that we can quickly change our camera to any person (1st or 3rd). That would be so useful. The Chinese version of mcpe has this function.

    And I don’t know if it’s my device, minecraft, or the addon itsef!
