Google Docs has always been a fairly competent, free alternative to Microsoft Word and now it gets a little smarter with grammar checking through Grammarly.
Grammar, which detects typing and grammar errors while typing, officially comes to Google Docs. The service has been in a closed beta for some time now, but now it comes for all Chrome users, with access in waves.
To access, you must first install Grammar for Chrome and sign in to (or sign up for) your account with the extension. Opening a document in Google Docs and checking for a Grammar logo at the bottom right of your browser window lets you know if you have been granted access.
Interestingly, it was not so long ago that Google announced that it was developing its own grammar check which would have been taken over grammatically. We're just happy that Google Docs gets a more robust grammar and spell checker.
