Previously known as Ideas in Word, Microsoft editor is an AI-powered service that will enable you to write without any grammar and punctuation errors. The tool has received some major updates to make it a viable competitor against Grammarly.

The extension is now available for Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome similar to Grammarly with most of the features are free. It has support for more than 20 languages with Grammar and spelling checks with the help of the AI developed by Microsoft. The tool is free with a Microsoft account but there are more advanced features available in the newly branded Microsoft 365 Personal and Family subscriptions.

The new Microsoft Editor helps users to become better writers by highlighting terms and phrases with feedback that could improve their writing. Within Word, the Editor analyzes your writing and searches for plagiarism, protects you from any errors and allows you to be more creative in writing. This will also allow you to reference material correctly if appropriate, which is useful for students writing reports and articles. The Microsoft Editor promises to clean up email messages in and Outlook on the web.

The company notes that the browser extensions currently do not require users to choose between several refinements or recommendations for sentences. This also fails to provide the complete range of refinements available in Word’s online edition. The company will, however, add more functionality to the extension in the coming months with regular updates.
