Google Search has introduced a new grammar check tool for both mobile and desktop users. This built-in feature allows users to determine whether a phrase or sentence is grammatically correct and provides suggestions for correction if needed. However, it is currently only available in English.
To utilize this tool, users simply need to enter a sentence or phrase into the search bar along with terms such as grammar check, check grammar, or grammar checker. While appending these phrases to the end of the query is not required, it ensures that the tool is activated every time. If no issues are detected, a Grammar Check section/card will appear as the first search result with a green checkmark.
In cases where grammar mistakes are identified, Google will rewrite the sentence and underline the changes made. Additionally, the tool is capable of correcting spelling errors. Users can hover over the fixed version to reveal a Copy button for convenience.
Behind the scenes, Google utilizes AI systems to analyze language. It’s important to note that grammar checks may not always be 100% accurate, especially with partial sentences, so it is recommended to avoid submitting phrases for analysis. While Gmail and Google Docs have offered spelling and grammar checks for some time now, it is quite notable that this feature has been incorporated into Google Search.
Should users encounter any issues with the grammar check tool, they can provide feedback by clicking on the Feedback option located in the bottom-right corner of the search page. Feedback options include marking the tool as helpful, irrelevant, incorrect suggestion, or offensive suggestion. Users also have the ability to leave comments and suggestions.
However, it’s worth mentioning that the grammar check will not function when the content potentially violates Google Search’s overall policies or policies for search features. This includes content with dangerous, medical, or vulgar language and profanity.
This new grammar check feature was introduced through a support document last month and is now available alongside other built-in utilities on Google Search. Some of these utilities include a speed test, color picker, spinner, meditation feature, calculator, coin flipper, die roller, and metronome.
With this grammar check tool, Google aims to provide users with more convenient and comprehensive search experiences, ensuring their content is not only optimized but also grammatically correct.
