Quicktype feature shows up as a new line just above the keyboard to suggest the words based on the context of the message and person with whom you are talking about. For example, if you are talking with your acquaintances in an informal way, quicktype will show you informal words while messaging same person again.

Quicktype not only provides suggestions based on the context of the discussion, it also gets smarter and learn things over time.
