Google knows your grammar is atrocious, so it is implementing AI grammar suggestions

Speeling iz hard

We’ve all hit Send on an important email only to find that we really should have proofread it before sending. Well, if you’re a G Suite user, you won’t have to manually proofread anything – Google is filling Gmail with AI smarts to check your spelling and grammar.

It’s like your own personal editor, without the need to feed them coffee every hour.

Gmail in G Suite is soon to be the grammar king

Soon, Google’s AI will be checking your email content, to suggest grammatical changes and spelling fixes. It’ll also correct some common errors “as-you-type,” meaning you won’t have to lift another finger to make good on your mistake. If it detects an error, you’ll get a squiggly blue line under the section, and right-clicking on that area will give correction suggestions.

  • It’s the same real-time checking that Google Docs got back in February of this year
  • Google thinks that non-native English speakers will benefit the most from this tool
  • Rapid release domains get the update from Aug 20, while scheduled release domains have to wait until September 12. No word on how long until consumer Gmail gets the AI smarts

Whelp, if you’re a G Suite user – it’s time to ditch that Grammarly subscription…

What do you think? Glad to see this new feature coming to Google’s G Suite? Let us know down below in the comments or carry the discussion over to our Twitter or Facebook.
