Google recently launched its AI-powered grammar checker in Search that analyzes the construction of sentences, phrases, and words with punctuations typed in.
This new feature provides users with corrections and suggestions through its built-in grammar checker tool. Consequently, by typing in “grammar check” in the Google Search bar, it automatically understands that a user wants a grammar check.
According to Google, the output provided by the grammar checker verifies if the grammar punched in is correct. If it sees spelling or grammatical errors, it also has the ability to indicate how to correct its composition or spelling.
Consequently, they indicated policies for grammar check on Search, stating that they have systems preventing grammar checks when the content might be violating Google Search’s overall policies.
In recent reports, users can easily copy the corrected sentence or phrase by clicking it. If a user types in a grammatically correct sentence, the tool will show a green checkmark, but if it needs correction, it will show a gold star.
Moreover, if a user sees something wrong with its correction or suggestion, users can submit their feedback on the grammar check result (located at the bottom right of the results box). People can select these options to further improve its grammar-checking services;
- This is helpful.
- This isn’t relevant.
- Suggestion is correct.
- Suggestion is offensive.
There is also a text box where users can write down their comments and suggestions.
So far, the grammar-checking feature is only available in English. We have yet to see how this feature will be applied to different languages.
Users do have to consider that the new feature may not be 100% accurate as it is powered by AI systems. There may be instances where partial sentences could not be thoroughly checked.
Nevertheless, this grammar checker continues to make searching much easier for users – having grammar checks in Google Search is a good bonus.
