I have been facing this issue for quite some time now. Had reported it more than 6 months ago and it was resolved back then, but it has resurfaced again (since quite some time). So here is the issue:
The initial three predictions that show up when the text field is empty, never change. That is, the predictions which used to be displayed after a fresh install do not change even though you use different words to begin sentences. This problem persists in most of the apps, but works in few. I am listing down the apps and their text fields where the problem can be reproduced and apps where this feature seems to be working fine.
For text fields where initial predictions fail, the predictions 'the - I - Okay' show up
Apps Where Predictions Do NOT Change:
Google Now App & the Search Bar on the Home ScreenWhatsApp chat box and WhatsApp search boxGoogle CalendarAny.doText Fields on pages browsed in ChromeAll Text fields in Google's Inbox.Contacts app's search boxDolphin Browser's search / address barMessaging App's Contact / Phone number field (Moto G default app)
Apps Where Predictions Work:
Contacts app's Add contact's Name field (prediction in other fields like company, titile, address, etc do not seem to work)Chrome's Omni boxMessaging App's Text Field (Moto G default app)
Having written this list so far, I now realize that names of apps where predictions do not work need not be mentioned. I checked every app on my phone which I believed could use a keyboard and the initial predictions didn't work... Except for the three apps mentioned above.
Moreover, this problem is not specific to my device. My family members have android phones and they use swiftkey (market version) and there is a similar problem in their devices too.
This is all I have to share for now, will be glad to share more info as needed.
