Based on machine learning, this new grammar checker will understand not only the writer’s spelling mistakes, but will also suggest solutions to other nuanced grammatical errors.

Google grammar checker will be an extra tool for users to improve their writing alongside spellcheck, which was first introduced in Google Docs seven years ago.

When it comes to spelling, you can typically look up whether a word exists or not, in the dictionary.

However, grammar is different, it’s a more complex set of rules that can vary based on the language, region, style and more.

Because it’s subjective, it can be a harder problem to tackle using a fixed set of rules.

# You won’t need an extension or app to burnish your writing, there will be a tool available to virtually anyone with a modern browser.

The feature would also make Grammarly useless in the Docs and other G Suite services. As of now, the grammar check feature is only available to paying customers of G Suite.

G Suite Basic, G Suite Business and G Suite Enterprise cost $5, $10 and $25 per month respectively.
