Google Docs adds new AI-based Grammar checking

Using machine translation techniques, Docs can now catch tricky grammatical errors it wouldn’t have been able to detect in the past and offer suggested corrections.  Don’t know the difference between “affect” and “effect”? How about “there” and “their”? Google Docs has your back. Google on Tuesday announced that an artificial intelligence-powered grammar suggestion feature it first introduced at July’s Cloud Next conference is now generally available to all G Suite customers.

The web giant first introduced spelling and grammar check in Docs seven years ago, but this new feature takes things a step further.  Not sure whether to use “a” or “an” in a sentence? Can’t remember how to use subordinate clauses correctly? This new feature can help.
