The company is finally adding a grammar check feature to Google Docs — one that will be able to address even complicated grammatical errors. The new feature was announced Tuesday at the Google Cloud Next conference, alongside updates to its automated email-writing features.

With the new feature, which is available to businesses as part of its early adopter program, Google Docs will use the same AI tech that powers its translation features to detect grammatical errors and suggest corrections.

Surprisingly, Google Docs hasn't had a built-in grammar check up until now. But the company says its new grammar suggestions go a step beyond the basic grammatical corrections you might expect.

"Our AI can catch several different types of corrections, fr

om simple grammatical rules like how to use articles in a sentence (like “a” versus “an”), to more complicated grammatical concepts such as how to use subordinate clauses correctly. Machine learning will help improve this capability over time to detect trickier grammar issues," Google wrote in a blog post.

"In addition to autocompleting common phrases, Smart Compose can insert personalized information like your office or home address, so you don’t need to spend time in repetitive tasks." Google writes. "And best of all, it will get smarter with time—for example, learning how you prefer to greet certain people in emails to ensure that when you use Smart Compose you sound like yourself."

For Google, these updates are all part of the company's ongoing bid to hook users on its increasingly AI-centric services. Just as the company is emphasizing its AI prowess more and more in its consumer products, it's equally important for the company to make AI front and center in its business offerings. 

Business-friendly software is an area where Google has typically lagged behind competitors like Microsoft, which have a years-long head start in the space. But features like these, which claim to help you spend less time on the "mundane" tasks you do every day, could help Google differentiate its offerings even more.
