In addition to the traditional grammar checker, Grammarly offers new and advanced features that add even more professionalism to your writing.
With the recent Grammarly update, the new tone detector ensures that you have the appropriate tone for your message. For example, if you want to send an email, you can choose the formal tone. For a post on social media, you can choose the informal tone.
From the official Grammarly team, I received the following email;
What is Grammarly Tone Detector?
By using machine learning and a set of advanced rules, the algorithm is able to detect the tone through patterns in words and is able to find a pattern to identify it.
There are currently over 40 different tones detected by Grammarly, including “formal”, “informal”, “sad”, “curious”, “surprised” etc.
With the beta version of the new tone detector, you can access it in some of the popular browser extensions, including Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. Once you have entered 120 characters in the Grammarly editor, you will start getting automatic suggestions.
In addition to these, it works on services like Gmail and Yahoo. As of today, Grammarly, Inc. is rolling out support for all types of text fields. You should see this official video about Grammarly, Inc.
