Microsoft Editor checks grammar and more in documents, mail, and the web

Microsoft Editor is an AI-powered service that helps bring out your best writer in more than 20 languages, whether you are writing a Word doc, composing an email message, or posting on a website like LinkedIn or Facebook.

Editor underlines the issues it finds. Select the underlined word or phrase to accept or ignore the suggestion.

Make a big impact with Announcements

Editor is available as a browser extension for Edge and Chrome, and it's being added to Word and Outlook apps. The free service lets you nail the basics of grammar and spelling. Additionally, with a Microsoft 365 subscription, Editor offers advanced grammar and style refinements like clarity, conciseness, formality, vocabulary suggestions, and more.

Microsoft Editor browser extension

As a browser extension in Edge or Chrome, Editor helps you compose and correct Gmail messages, social media posts, and anything you write on the web. Sign in with your Microsoft account for free to get basic spelling and grammar checking. Or sign in with your Microsoft 365 account to get refinements beyond the basics.

For more information about the browser extension, see Check grammar and spelling with the Microsoft Editor browser extension.

Word for the web

Editor is included in Word for the web. Sign in with your Microsoft account for free to get basic spelling and grammar checking. Or sign in with your Microsoft 365 account to get refinements beyond the basics, including readability statistics.

Customers who sign in with an Microsoft 365 account should see Editor right away. It will take a few weeks for Editor to roll out to all user accounts.

Word for Microsoft 365

Editor has been updated in the Windows version of Word for Microsoft 365 to check for more issues than it did in Word 2016 and 2019. The updated user interface is more closely aligned to Word for the web. Look for Editor on the Home tab.

Outlook.com and Outlook on the web 

Editor is included in Outlook on the web and Outlook.com when you're signed in with your Microsoft 365 account. If you don't see Editor right away, check back later; it will take several weeks for Editor to be available to all user accounts.
