Surprisingly, Google Docs until now hasn’t had a built-in grammar check. But the company says that its new grammar suggestions go a step further than basic grammatical corrections that you can expect.
Google in a blog post wrote- “Our AI can catch several different types of corrections, from simple grammatical rules like how to use articles in a sentence (like “a” versus “an”), to more complicated grammatical concepts such as how to use subordinate clauses correctly. Machine learning will help improve this capability over time to detect trickier grammar issues”.
Although this additional feature will be available only for businesses at launch, Google says it is planning to extend the work on a broader factor in the future.

Google also announced that it will now make yet another email predicting feature available to G Suite users: Smart Compos, this feature was announced at the beginning of this year on Google I / O. Like Smart Reply, Smart Compose predicts email messages because you are writing a message.
“Further as an add-on to automating completion of common phrases, Smart Compose can put personal information such as your office or home address, so you do not have to spend time in repetitive tasks.” Google writes. “And the best part, it will attain smartness over time- for example, to learn how to greet certain people via emails to make sure when you use Smart Compose you pretty much “sound like yourself”.
For Google, these updates are part of the company’s ongoing bid, which will accelerate in a number of users to have a proclivity towards AI-focused services. In the process, as the company is emphasizing its AI skill progressively in its consumer products, it is equally important for the company to make AI Front and Center in its business offerings.
The business-friendly software is one area where Google is usually lagged behind competitors such as Microsoft, which have a years-long head start in the space. But likewise, these features, which claim to help you spend less time on “mundane” or ordinary tasks you do every day, can help Google further differentiate its offerings much more.
