Proofreading software provider Grammarly has brought several premium features to Google Docs, including a dedicated sidebar for suggestions, feedback on clarity, engagement, delivery, and more.
Grammarly has been available in beta form for Google Docs since 2018. Now the company has officially confirmed that its advanced writing suggestions are available in Google Docs for all Chrome users.
The service has been extended with a sidebar that appeared on the right side of the Google Docs interface. Besides suggestions related to spelling, grammar and punctuation, it recommends tweaks related to clarity, engagement and delivery. The correction suggestions also provide additional context to explain to users why a specific change is being made.
Goals is another new feature in Google Docs. As the name suggests, it lets users set goals depending on certain criteria such as audience, formality level, and writing style. The feature then provides tailored suggestions to target users’ content to suit their goals.
While spelling corrections and goals are available for free-tier users, features like feedback on clarity and delivery are available to premium subscribers only.
If you want to try out Grammarly for Google Docs, you must first download Grammarly’s extension for Chrome and then head to docs.google.com.
All these features also work on Microsoft’s Chromium-based Edge browser. However, users must download the extension from the Chrome web store.
