Microsoft has announced that the Microsoft Editor extension is now available in Outlook on other platforms. With the latest update, users can access the editor in Outlook for the web, iOS, Windows, and Android.
Microsoft Editor helps users improve grammar while using Office applications. It offers spelling, grammar, and writing style recommendations that will “help you write with confidence.” Microsoft Editor supports over 90 languages, but most of them only work with basic checks. More sophisticated offerings are available in 20 languages, which is still impressive for a relatively new service that Microsoft launched in early 2020.
You can use the Microsoft Editor for free, but the spell checker, extended grammar check, and writing enhancement are only available to Microsoft 365 subscribers. The extension is enabled by default in Outlook, and users can turn off the editor in the settings on each platform.
It’s also worth noting that the Microsoft Editor is available as a standalone Chromium extension, so you can use the service on any website by downloading the Editor from the Chrome Web Store or Edge Add-ons Store .
