Something called "SamsungSmartSuggestions" is depleting my battery. What is it?

It's at the top of the list of running systems, and by the end of the day it's used more than triple or quadruple of any other items listed in my battery stats. Does anyone know what it is? I am currently using Google Messages and Gboard. I might switch to Signal or Samsung messages and the Samsung keyboard to see if this makes any difference.  But it's definitely causing significant drainage. Thanks for any help if someone might know what it is and where it's coming from. A cache wipe didn't fix it.

I notice when I highlight text and waiting for the "copy ..." pop up, I get the popup that the SamsungSmartSuggestions has crashed shows up

This is the WORSE Samsung beta program I've been involved with.

I can NOT make phone calls right now either ... really? can't use my phone for it's intended purpose??

Ugh. That's no good. I had a pop-up today from it and then went to the "app" and disabled it. Not sure if this was good or bad.
No ability to call? I've not had that before. This is my 4th and worst beta as well.

I highly recommend disabling it if you get another pop-up. It's completely disappeared from my battery stats. Still unsure of what its purpose is

Hello @missmotta ,

The SamsungSmartSuggestions is an intelligence service that handles Contextual Analysis, Personalized Suggestions, Autofill, Etc.  Samsung keyboard supports OTP based on these suggestions. SamsungSmartSuggestions catches OTP from SMS and sends it to Samsung keyboard.
