Using Grammarly's tone detector

The beta version of Grammarly’s tone detector is available in Grammarly for Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Edge. 

Note: This feature is also available in Grammarly for Microsoft Office in Outlook (for Windows users). To learn more, visit this page.

To check the tone of your writing, please follow these steps:

  • Double-check that you have Grammarly’s browser extension installed. 
  • Open any website where you can write text, such as Gmail.
  • Be sure to write a few sentences—the tone detector needs at least 120 characters to activate.
  • Click the emoji that appears in the bottom right corner of your screen to check your tone.

You can also access Grammarly’s tone detector directly in the new sidebar. To open the sidebar, click the G icon in the lower right corner of the text field and then click the emoji shown in the lower part of the sidebar:
