If you’ve ever used a tool like Grammarly, you may be familiar with the types of assistive writing features Google Docs offers to help you perfect the style and tone of your work.

What can the Google Doc assistive writing features help you with?

  • A more relevant word choice to match the work you’ve already written

  • Where you should use active voice rather than passive voice

  • How to make a sentence more concise

  • The use of more inclusive language

  • A warning on inappropriate words or phrases so you can reconsider using them

These features can help you avoid repeating words and will save you time when writing and revising. In schools, the Word Warning feature can help students who don’t fully understand what’s appropriate to write yet.

The assistive writing features are available for Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Standard, and Enterprise Plus users. Education Fundamentals, Education Standard, Education Plus, and Teaching and Learning Upgrade users will get the Word Warning feature.

Although the feature is turned on for you by default, end users can always turn off the feature in the Tools menu under Stylistic Suggestions and your Workspace admin can turn it off for the entire organization.
