Popular English language writing-enhancement platform, Grammarly announced the rollout of its virtual keyboard for Android on the Google Play Store on Tuesday. The Android app comes more than a month after the keyboard app was launched for iOS.
Grammarly Keyboard is a personal editor that has integration over mobile apps and mobile browsers. Whenever you type using the Grammarly keyboard, it will check your writing and make sure the message looks clear and mistake-free. Suggestions for the message will be displayed on top of the keyboard, which you can accept by tapping on them.
For paid Grammarly Premium users, the keyboard will also suggest additional style improvements and vocabulary enhancements.
You can choose from American or British English on the Grammarly keyboard for Android. You can also add words to your personal dictionary to prevent Grammarly from flagging them as mistakes. Once added, words from your personal dictionary will be applicable on all your logged in devices.
To protect user data, Grammarly claims that it has encryption and several other measures in place to ensure that there is no misuse of data that is collected for providing the word suggestions. The keyboard is also blocked from accessing sensitive information like your credit card details or passwords. Grammarly claims that its mistake-checking algorithm has been developed by some of the world's leading linguistic experts.
The Grammarly virtual keyboard was recently launched for iOS devices. For Grammarly Premium users on iOS, the keyboard will also improve word choice and suggest style improvements.
