Grammarly wants to be a part of everything you write. While many of our users type their important documents in a word processor (or in the Grammarly Editor), we know that Google Docs is where some of the most collaborative work gets done. That’s why we’re starting to release a beta version of Grammarly for Chrome in Google Docs to all users!
Why make Grammarly work in Google Docs?
At Grammarly, we plan our products and updates with users in mind. There’s one feature request we’ve heard loud and clear — users love the Grammarly browser extension, they love Google Docs, and it would be awesome if the two worked together! It’s one of our most commonly requested features.
Of course, we couldn’t just release any version of Grammarly into Google Docs. We wanted to make sure this was the feature our users dreamed of.
Premium users have been testing our beta for us, telling us how much they love it and what we can do to make it better. Now we want to give everyone the opportunity to test it out.
When will I get it?
We’re starting our rollout to all Grammarly for Chrome users today! We’ll be rolling it out gradually over the next month, so it may take a bit for you to get access. For now, it’s only available on Google Chrome.
Okay, how do I 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.
Let us know what you think!
Here’s what some of our Premium users have been saying:
