Formerly known as “Ideas in Word,” Microsoft Editor is getting a significant update to include some exciting features. Microsoft Editor is an AI-powered service that will enable you to write without any grammar and punctuation errors.
In short, Microsoft has introduced its own tool to compete with Grammarly, which is the industry leader right now.
People can use Microsoft Editor on Word (Web and desktop) and Outlook.com, along with Outlook on the web. Additionally, there will be free extensions for Microsoft Edge and Chrome will let users access the editor across the web.
So, you can write emails, posts on Facebook and LinkedIn, and in-depth articles by using the capabilities of Microsoft Editor.
What’s more, is that the tool will let you communicate without any flaws in more than 20 languages. According to Microsoft, “suggestions for each language are developed in partnership with native speakers and local linguists.” So, the company is aiming at perfection.
The essential features of the editor will be free, however, to enjoy advanced “grammar and style refinements,” you must be a Microsoft 365 subscriber. The subscription will offer enhanced clarity, formality, and conciseness while writing the content.
Much like Grammarly, Microsoft Editor can do a lot more than just giving suggestions to enhance your writing. The tool will also detect plagiarized content to make it easy for you to insert relevant citations.
The Microsoft Editor will start rolling out today. But we can expect its general availability sometime around the third week of April.
