Grammarly, the tool for checking your grammar while you type, is teaming up with Google Docs. The functionality has been in beta for the last month or so for Premium subscribers, and it’s “gradually” rolling out to everyone who uses Grammarly for Chrome. That’s according to a recent blog post from the organisation.
Here’s how to use it:
First, make sure you’re signed in to your Grammarly account and have the Chrome browser extension. Install Grammarly for Chrome if you haven’t already.
When you open any document in Google Docs, you should see a pop-up letting you know you’ve been given access to the beta. Once you see that, check for the Grammarly logo in the bottom right corner. That means it’s working! (If the document you open is long, you may see a message asking you to confirm that you want to check the entire document.)
Now, type away! Grammarly’s corrections and suggestions will appear as red underlines in your text, just as they do in our other products. Hover over each red underline to see the suggestion, and click to accept it.
