Last year, there was a rumor that the Redmond Giant was working on software similar to Grammarly for checking grammatical errors in content. Recently, along with rebranded Microsoft 365 suite, Microsoft has announced a new service named Microsoft Editor.
According to Microsoft, it’s AI-powered writing assistant enables the users to write without any grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors and has support for 20+ languages. Besides, it also offers suggestions for writing emails, Facebook, or LinkedIn posts.
The Editor in Word (formerly known as Ideas in Word) now assists users beyond the basics with AI and catch the mistakes in a jiffy. It is also accessible in Outlook, which the users can anywhere on the web. The Editor standalone browser extension will also release in the next few weeks in both Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge web stores though it is already live in Office extension. Zac Bowden of Windows Central also tweeted about this, which you can check below.
The Microsoft Editor has two types of subscription Free and Paid. The free subscription is for all users providing basic features, which include spelling and grammar error checks across Word, Outlook, and the web. However, the users on Microsoft 365 subscription will enable access to advanced suggestions on style, clarity, conciseness, vocabulary, etc. while writing content.
Moreover, the company also mentioned that in the coming months, they will introduce a content Similarity Checker for identifying unoriginal content. For more information on the Editor, you can check the company’s blog on it at the Microsoft Tech Community website.
