How to Use Grammarly in Google Docs?


Microsoft Office program is still the most useful document processing tool from all over the world. However, one of the downsides of Microsoft Office it is that the program doesn’t support syncing the files among the devices, you might need to use Dropbox or office 365 to make it work.

Then Google Docs stands out, and indeed, they provide web platform, and also a mobile app for iOS, Android! Therefore it becomes more and more popular among the writers, office workers who would like to save the documents, sheets automatically and share to the target person, clients without installing the extra synchronous application.

To use Google Docs to write something effectively, Google Docs also provides a useful spelling tool; the spell check feature is set by default, where you can find it from Tools > Spelling.  By using this feature, you will find that it always gives the correct tips for all of the words you typed wrongly.

How the default spelling check feature works?

When you are typing, some words are missing some letters without notice; the spell check feature helps draw the red curves under each wrong word and alert you to correct. What you have to do is right-click on the wrong words and then select the right one from “Did you mean” section.

Despite using the default spell check tool, can we use the Grammarly for Google Docs, as Grammarly is capable of polishing the contents no matter the incorrect grammar, overused words, or checking contextual spelling and plagiarism, enhancing the vocabulary or sentence structure with a more precise hint.

However, you’ll need to wait for an update from Grammarly Inc. As right now, Grammarly is still a beta version could only do to check the spelling.

Steps on how to use Grammarly when using the Google Docs

  1. Install the Grammarly from Chrome Web Store.
  2. Turn on the Grammarly after entering the Google Docs.
  3. The Grammarly draws a straight line under the wrong words you are typing.
  4. Left-click on the wrong words and choose the correct one.

Turn on Grammarly for Google Docs

Choose the favorite spell check tool as you need, however, I strongly recommend Grammarly and the reason that is it has the plugin for Local Microsoft Office program and the web extension utility for Chrome, Firefox which is the most useful grammar, spelling and plagiarism check tool.

Although Grammarly is a Beta version for Google Docs now, let’s looking forward to the version update from the Grammarly shortly and hope that we can use the powerful features in Google docs very soon.
