Quick launch summary 

Earlier this year we introduced a BETA for new grammar suggestions in Google Docs. Now we’re making this feature available for G Suite Basic, Business, and Enterprise users.

The new features enhance existing spell check functions and highlight possible grammatical errors in your text. We’re also introducing a revamped interface for reviewing spelling and grammar suggestions which makes it faster and easier to spot and correct errors in your text.

Some improvements you’ll see are:

  • Grammar 
    • Possible grammar corrections will be underlined in blue. To see a suggested correction or dismiss the alert, simply right-click. 
    • You will also see possible grammar errors when running a spelling and grammar check through the Tools menu. 
  •  New language review interface
    •  You can easily review all language suggestions for your document with the updated spelling and grammar check tool. Access it through the “Tools” menu or right-click on a suggestion and select “Review more suggestions” — you’ll see each suggestion and actions to correct any errors. 

To learn more about how we’re using machine learning to recognize errors and suggest corrections to improve your writing, see here.
