The Grammarly generative AI writing tool will automatically be available across apps and websites this April.
Starting this April, Grammarly users can expect to get more than just grammar checks and writing adjustments. All thanks to their very own generative AI Writing tool called GrammarlyGo, short prompts given by users can now be expanded into full write ups.
Through GrammarlyGo, all 30 million users of the app can now brainstorm ideas, compose writing, edit, and even personalize text through the Grammarly browser extension.
In time, the AI-based writing assistant company will also be rolling it out to 500,000 other websites, desktop, and mobile applications where their app is available. Users will be able to access GrammarlyGo features on apps like Medium, LinkedIn, Gmail and Google Docs.
What can this generative AI Writing tool do?
GrammarlyGo is built on OpenAI’s GPT-3 large language models which is the predecessor to the GPT-3.5 and GPT-4 large language model that is used on the controversial, ChatGPT.
This new Grammarly feature would allow users to give short prompts to create entire drafts of writing and convert bullet points to paragraphs. Furthermore, users can also give feedback and additional context to the tool to rewrite a piece of text based on a preferred tone (such as professional, confident, or friendly) and length (shorter or longer).
GrammarlyGo can also interpret the intent of an email, condense it into a single line and propose options for email replies based on the context of previous emails.
For the past 14 years, Grammarly has been building and applying a mix of technologies such as deep learning, machine learning, natural language processing and language models to suggest corrections to people’s writing.
The announcement came after the controversial ChatGPT went viral late last year and crossed 100 million users in January 2023.
The conversational chatbot has set in motion a generative AI frenzy, with several generative AI startups emerging, and other companies such as Meta and Roblox placing their bets on the technological advancements in language models.
