How does Grammarly's tone detector work?

If you use the Grammarly extension for Chrome, you may have seen a small emoji next to the Grammarly logo in your emails. This is Grammarly's tone detector, a feature that can help you:

  1. Detect the emotions you are potentially trying to convey to your reader in your email. This is called emotional tone, and you can learn more about it here.
  2. Detect how formal or informal your email may seem to your reader. This is called formality, and you can learn more about it here.
  3. Detect other types of tones in your email.
  4. Give Grammarly feedback on whether the tones detected match your expectations.

As one of Grammarly's features, Grammarly’s tone detector still adheres to the privacy practices outlined here, and it falls under the same Privacy Policy.
