Google calls Proofread the “next generation of writing suggestions, powered by AI.” Besides spelling and grammar, Google Docs suggestions will cover:
- Conciseness: Suggestions for making your writing more concise
- Active voice: Suggestions for making your writing more clear to readers
- Wording: Suggestions for making words sound more dynamic or formal in context
- Sentence Split: Suggestions for splitting up complex sentences to make your writing easier to read
It uses the same ‘A’ and ‘checkmark’ icon in the toolbar (next to Print). A blue dot appears in the top-left corner when writing suggestions are available. Tapping opens a side panel to review all suggestions and accept/reject. You can quickly browse suggestions by type.
This is meant to let you “more easily and quickly compose high-quality content in Google Docs.” It can be turned off from the Tools menu > Proofread.
It can help improve conciseness and make your documents clearer and easier to read. These suggestions are non-intrusive and won’t clutter your document as you compose and collaborate — you can easily review all suggestions directly from the Proofread sidebar whenever you’re ready and decide which suggestions are most appropriate for you to accept.
Proofread is a paid Duet AI for Workspace Enterprise add-on feature and is rolling out now to those Google Docs users.
