Using the tone detector in the Grammarly Keyboard for Android

You can now use Grammarly’s tone detector to assess the tone of your message while writing on your mobile device. 

Note: The tone detector is also available in Grammarly for Windows and Mac, the Grammarly browser extension, Grammarly for Microsoft Office in Outlook (for Windows users), and the Grammarly Keyboard for iOS

To check the tone of your message, follow these steps: 

  1. Double-check that you have the Grammarly Keyboard for Android installed and set up. 
  2. Open any app and tap on the text field to pull up the keyboard. 
  3. Write a few sentences—the tone detector needs at least 90 characters to activate.
  4. Tap the emoji or G icon that appears in the upper-left corner of the keyboard to check your tone: 


If you need to switch off the tone detector, open the companion app on your device, go to Keyboard Customization, and toggle off the switch next to Tone Detection.
