Microsoft Launches a Grammarly Alternative Also Available as a Chrome Extension
Microsoft has just announced Microsoft Editor, a new spelling and grammar tool that’s available as part of the new Microsoft 365 and which can also be used in Chromium-powered browsers.
Microsoft is already offering state-of-the-art grammar tools in Microsoft Office, but the company is now further expanding its offering with a tool that does the whole magic right in the browser.
Users of Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and other Chromium browsers will be able to install the extension from the Chrome Web Store and benefit from features like an alternate vocabulary, punctuation, as well as recommendations on how to improve the sentence clarity.
Also available in Outlook
Similar features are already available in Grammarly, so it’s very clear that Microsoft Editor, whose rollout is projected to be completed by the end of April, is specifically supposed to be offered as a competing product.
