Grammarly is an excellent proofreading tool that can help you identify spelling mistakes and grammatical errors in your messages, emails, word documents, or social media posts. Now, Google is bringing Grammarly to Gboard in a new feature that’s rolling out for Pixel models and beyond.
The keyboard app is a safety net that can help you look professional in your writing and strengthen your relationships with real-time corrections. It also offers emojis and stickers to spice up your texting.
Grammarly is a top-rated typing app that can help you correct spelling mistakes and improve your writing. Its premium version offers suggestions on vocabulary, tone and more.
Gboard is Google’s official keyboard app that comes pre-installed on many Android smartphones. It supports a variety of languages including English. Its latest update adds a new Grammar check feature which is similar to Grammarly’s.
The new Grammar check feature will underline grammatical errors in blue and suggest corrections. It will also flag repetitive words and suggest stronger synonyms. The feature is currently rolling out to Pixel phones and will soon be available on all compatible Android devices.
Grammarly is more than just a spell checker. It corrects sentences and helps you write better by pointing out mistakes in vocabulary, syntax, tenses, and verb usage.
Unlike that pedantic grammatical teacher who always corrected you, Grammarly Keyboard is more polite with its corrections. Each time the app flags a word, it offers you a polite explanation for why it thinks you made the mistake and gives you the option to add the word to your personal dictionary.
Google rolled out its own grammar check feature for Gboard last year for Pixel phones. It now detects grammatical errors in real-time and highlights them with blue underlines.
Grammarly is a writing assistant that improves the quality of your documents, emails, blog posts and more. It goes beyond spelling and grammatical errors to suggest corrections for word choice, tone, style and more.
It also offers suggestions to make your document more persuasive and professional. This includes rewriting awkward sentences, suggesting stronger synonyms and providing context for unfamiliar words.
The app is compatible with mobile devices running Android 7.0 (Nougat) or newer. It works in your go-to apps so you can write confidently and professionally from anywhere.
Gboard is Google’s official keyboard app and comes pre-installed on Android devices. Its major forte is its grammar correction feature which automatically corrects spelling mistakes and grammatical errors during typing.
The emoji was created in 1999 by Shigetaka Kurita as an alternative way of conveying emotions through text. The first 176 icons represented weather, moods, foods, animals, and objects.
Both apps support a wide range of emojis. However, Gboard has a more extensive collection of emojis and offers the option to search for specific emojis. It also has a dedicated clipboard manager that can store copied texts for an hour before they’re automatically purged.
GIFs & Stickers
GIFs and stickers can add a lot to your social media posts, emails and other marketing content. They are a great way to express your brand’s personality and have that feel-good factor.
GIF-based visuals are playful and aren’t as ‘creepy’ as video-based ones. For instance, while a video of two people snuggling may be a little too much, sending a GIF of a cute burrito can make your message more approachable.
Both apps have a wide range of GIFs and stickers that you can choose from. However, Gboard has a more extensive list of stickers and offers support for more languages than Grammarly.
Dedicated Clipboard Manager
Grammarly’s major forte is that it eliminates grammatical errors and spelling mistakes while you write. However, the software’s spell checker and sentence editing functionalities are internet-dependent and therefore, you would need to be connected to a wireless network or a mobile data connection to use it.
Gboard, on the other hand, is a mobile keyboard app that works in your go-to apps and helps you polish your writing across platforms. It also supports a wide range of keyboard layouts including QWERTY, AZERTY, Dvorak, and Colemak. Furthermore, Gboard offers a one-handed typing mode that resizes the keyboard to make it more comfortable for single-handed usage.
