Introduction

Writing on decktop or online is far more different from writing in a paper. you have to observe what we type as well as what is on the screen. Hence, you tend to make more mistakes than writing on paper.

Default spell checker that comes in MS document and Google docs works fine in terms of detecting spelling errors & punctuations. But having a tool like Grammarly will definitely improve your writing way more efficiently.

As a blogger, it’s essential to have your writing free of errors. Therefore, I will be taking a closer look at the features of Grammarly and how it can be used to improve your writing.

If you are not using Grammarly. You can try it for free.

How Grammarly Works?

Grammarly is an AI-powered online writing assistant tool that captures spelling mistakes, grammatical errors and gives alternative suggestions to improve your writing. Additionally,

  • Checks for writing suggestions
  • Correct spellings automatically
  • Shows phrasal predictions.
  • Shows readability scores as we write.

It comes as a desktop app, web app as well as a browser extension. It is absolutely free to download and add the extension to your browser. 

Grammarly software is powered by the latest system that combines rules, patterns, and artificial intelligence techniques like machine learning, deep learning, and natural language processing to improve your writing.

As a blogger, I use Grammarly’s browser extension a lot, thanks to its easy setup. You can directly access Grammarly on Facebook, Quora, and any online text editor. You can see a green “G” in the lower right corner of the text field, which means Grammarly is active and enabled.

If you are writing for your client or others, you can take the help of its desktop app or online web editor.

How does Grammarly check your writing?

Grammarly analyzes your sentence written in English using their built-in powerful AI system.

Therefore, when you write with Grammarly, its AI system analyzes each sentence and finds ways to improve it, whether it’s correcting a verb tense, suggesting a stronger synonym, correcting misspelled words, or offering a clearer sentence structure. 

Some of my favorite Grammarly Features

Apart from just correct spelling and grammatical errors, It certainly offers many other great writing features.

Here are the features that I liked in Grammarly.

1) Shows Readability score on the go. 

As you are writing an email or document, you may not be aware of how easy for readers to understand your paragraph.

Without knowingly, there is a chance that you may express your idea using too long and complicated sentences.

Readability scores show how easy for the readers to understand your sentence.

The higher the score, the easier it is to read your document.

Grammarly’s readability score is based on the average length of sentences and words in your document, using a formula known as the Flesch reading ease test.

2) Helps to smooth out unclear sentences

Something when you want to talk about a particular product, you may get stuck up in framing proper sentences to express your view.

Just because a particular sentence is grammatically correct doesn’t mean it’s easy to understand.

With the Grammarly Premium plan (Paid), you can get suggestions to reframe unclear sentences.

This will improve your paragraph and make it comfortable to read.

3) Customize your writing style 

Basically, when you write an email, your approach will be totally different from writing a blog article. 

The same goes with writing a status report to your client. With the Grammarly desktop app, you can select what type of suggestion you want based on the audience.

This style is what I will choose for writing a blog. Similarly, you can choose according to your preference.

For instance, if you want to write a friendly email, you can choose formality to “informal.”

Grammarly will ignore common slang that we use in chats.

4) Detect how your para sounds

While writing a paragraph, Grammarly’s AI system predicts how your sentence sounds. It is quite useful to see how your audience feels when they read your article.

It also gives a positive feeling when you realize how well your sentence sounds.

Also, seeing the related emojis gives a nice experience to write.  

If you are writing on the desktop app, you can choose how you want them to sound and start writing. 

Grammarly will make sure you are on the right track. 

This is currently running on the Beta version, so something, you may get slightly wrong prediction but for most of the case, it works pretty well.

Some underwhelming aspects

It doesn’t work Offline:

Grammarly apps will only work with an internet connection.

If you want to get a quick suggestion from Grammarly, you won’t be able to access it offline. 

Can’t totally rely on all its suggestions:

In the case of writing small sentences, Grammarly will not be aware of the tense you are using. There is a chance if you mistakenly wrote the present tense verb instead of Past tense. Grammarly will suggest changing your sentence totally into a present tense.

It may end up changing the meaning of your whole content. 

So for the best practice always proofread your content after making changes. 

Available only for writing in English :

As far as now, Grammarly works for writing in English only. If you want to write in any other language, you don’t get its support. 

 

Grammarly Support

Grammarly doesn’t have chat support but it provides a help center where you can post your doubts and their team will respond to your requested ticket.

Final verdict

Grammarly is still a great tool to try in 2021 for writing. I would recommend you to try its Free plan. 

Because of its excellent UI and integration options will be a great help to write error-free documents and articles.

You can choose Grammarly premium if you want to take your writing to the next level effortlessly. 

But make sure you give manual proofread at least once after making changes because, after all, it’s just only a machine and can be equal to our human vision.
