Predictive Search is an extension of EComposer, it is used to enable suggested results to show up as soon as you put them in the search area. It can work with the Search form in your theme and the Search element in EComposer.

One of the best features of EComposer is this function, which gives customers additional methods to explore your online store while also helping them to express and refine their search queries. Furthermore, it enables users to peruse pertinent results rapidly without exiting the present page and navigating to an alternative search results list.
