Does Grammarly support Google Docs?

We are currently beta testing Grammarly's browser extension in Google Docs. 

This beta has been released to all Grammarly users on Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Edge Chromium. 

If you use Chrome as your preferred browser, you can access Grammarly’s full functionality in the Grammarly sidebar in Google Docs. 

Checking text

To access Grammarly’s suggestions, open an existing Google document or create a new one and click the Grammarly button in the lower right corner of the browser window. 


If you’d like to accept a suggestion, simply click on it.  

If you’d like to ignore a suggestion, click the trash can icon to dismiss it.

To see a detailed explanation about a suggestion, click Learn more at the bottom of the suggestion.

If a suggestion is incorrect or you’d like to report it for any reason, click the three dots and choose your preferred option to proceed.

If you’d like Grammarly to stop flagging a particular spelling as incorrect, you can add the word to your personal dictionary by clicking the Add to dictionary button.

Some suggestions, such as correctness suggestions (red underlines) or style guide suggestions (gray underlines, available to Grammarly Business users), are shown directly in the text. You don’t have to open the sidebar to accept these suggestions — simply hover over the underlined word to see the suggestion card. 

Adjusting goals

If you use Grammarly for Chrome, you can also set a specific writing goal for your document directly in Google Docs.

To do that, open the Grammarly sidebar by clicking the G icon in the lower right corner of the browser window and then click Adjust Goals:


In the menu that appears next, choose the Audience, Formality, Domain, and Intent of the document: 


Note: The Domain feature is available only to Grammarly Premium subscribers.
