Update to Google Docs and Presentations spell checking

posted 23 Mar 2012, 00:12 by Chris Barrow   [ updated 25 Feb 2013, 12:19 ]

The spell checking feature in Google Docs and Presentations now uses the power of Google search. The major benefits of this are:


- Suggestions are contextual
- Contextual suggestions are made even if the misspelled word is in the dictionary
- Suggestions constantly evolve

The new spell checker is available for English documents and presentations, but the plan is to bring it to more languages soon.

Release track: 
Rapid & Scheduled

Editions included: 
Google Apps™, Google Apps™ for Business, Government and Education

Languages included: 
English only
