Grammarly, a company that provides a real-time spelling and grammar checking tool, is expanding its artificial intelligence (AI) resources with a new generative AI tool called GrammarlyGo. This tool is designed to improve communication and will be made available to most Grammarly users starting in April. 

According to Rahul Roy-Chowdhury, the Global Head of Product at Grammarly, poor communication can have far-reaching effects such as eroding relationships, stifling business growth, and slowing feedback loops that consume valuable time. In a survey conducted in collaboration with The Harris Poll last year, it was found that poor communication costs US businesses up to $1.2 trillion annually or $12,506 per employee. The full report can be accessed here.

What is GrammarlyGo?

GrammarlyGo, a new generative AI tool developed by Grammarly, is designed to enhance communication by utilizing personal, organizational, and situational context to craft messages for email, social media, and long-form communication. By using GrammarlyGo to write interoffice messages to your work team, for instance, the tool could help make your message sound more professional.

With GrammarlyGo, you'll receive prompts to improve, simplify, or shorten a message, as well as guidance to adjust the message's tone to match different scenarios. You can also customize the tool by entering your own prompts that cater to your specific needs. Additionally, GrammarlyGo can generate outlines or ideas that can be incorporated into your messages or used as references. The tool also offers one-click prompts to help you overcome writer's block.

According to Roy-Choddhury, ‘By embracing new technologies like generative AI, we can advance our vision of supporting the entire process -- from conception to comprehension.’

AI tools abound

Following the debut of OpenAI's ChatGPT at the end of 2022, many tech companies have begun announcing their own AI tools. Among them, Microsoft, Google, and Snapchat have all released AI chatbot tools that allow users to hold conversations and generate content. However, these tools lack the ability to take context into account when generating messages and ideas. In contrast, GrammarlyGo's new generative AI tool is designed to understand context and tone to a limited degree. This makes it a basic contextual AI in addition to a generative AI tool.

Generative AI is an umbrella term that refers to any type of AI that can be used to create text, images, video, audio, and code. Contextual AI, on the other hand, is a technology that can analyze cultural, historical, and situational aspects of data to make the best decision. As GrammarlyGo employs both generative and contextual AI, it has the potential to revolutionize online activities such as writing essays, planning vacations, and more.

Artificially intelligent, to an extent

GrammarlyGo, the new AI tool from Grammarly, can understand situational context well enough to create tailored communication for different scenarios. However, you'll need to input specific data, such as the level of formality and tone, to enable the tool to generate the appropriate message. While the tool may not have the innate ability to respond appropriately, it can differentiate between crafting a casual and formal response when provided with the necessary data.

GrammarlyGo will be available across various other Grammarly products, including Grammarly Premium, Business, Education, and Grammarly for Developers. Some select markets' Grammarly Free users will also have access to GrammarlyGo.

    Uhh, this has already been possible – I am not sure how but remember my brother telling me about it. I’m not a whatsapp user so not sure of the specifics, but something about sending the image as a file and somehow bypassing the default compression settings that are applied to inbound photos.

    He has also used this to share movies to whatsapp groups, and files 1Gb+.

    Like I said, I never used whatsapp, but I know 100% this isn’t a “brand new feature”, my brother literally showed me him doing it, like… 5 months ago?

    Martin, what happened to those: 12 Comments ( Is there a specific justifiable reason why they were deleted?

    Hmm, it looks like the gHacks website database is faulty, and not populating threads with their relevant cosponsoring posts.

    The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk that it’s about to be deleted from my ‘daily reads’.

    It’s really like “Press Release as re-written by some d*ck for clicks…poorly.” And the subjects are laughable. Can’t wait for “How to search for files on Windows”.

      > The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk…

      Sadly, I have to agree.

      Only Martin and Ashwin are worth subscribing to.
      Especially Emre Çitak and Shaun are the worst ones.

      If intended “Clickbait”, it would mark the end of Ghacks Technology News.
      Ghacks doesn’t need crappy clickbaits. Clearly separate articles from newer authors (perhaps AIs and external sales person or external advertising man) as just “Advertisements”!

      We, the subscribers of Ghacks, urge Martin to make a decision.

    because nevermore wants to “monetize” on every aspect of human life…

    “Threads” is like the Walmart of Social Media.

    How hard can it be to clone a twitter version of that as well? They’re slow.

  7. Paul(us) said on August 21, 2023 at 5:16 pm

    Yes, why not mention how large the HD files can be?
    Why, not mention what version of WhatsApp is needed?
    These omissions make the article feel so bare. If not complete.

      Sorry posted on the wrong page.

    such a long article for such a simple matter. Worthless article ! waste of time

    I already do this by attaching them via the ‘Document’ option.

    I don’t know what’s going on here at Ghacks but it’s obvious that something is broken, comments are being mixed whatever the article, I am unable to find some of my later posts neither. :S

    Quoting the article,
    “As users gain popularity, the value of their tokens may increase, allowing investors to reap rewards.”

    Besides, beyond the thrill and privacy risks or not, the point is to know how you gain popularity, be it on social sites as everywhere in life. Is it by being authentic, by remaining faithful to ourselves or is it to have this particular skill which is to understand what a majority likes, just like politicians, those who’d deny to the maximum extent compatible with their ideological partnership, in order to grab as many of the voters they can?

    I see the very concept of this as unhealthy, propagating what is already an increasing flaw : the quest for fame. I won’t be the only one to count himself out, definitely.

    1. Tom Hawack said on August 23, 2023 at 2:34 pm

      @John G. is right : my comment was posted on [] and it appears there but as well here at []

      This has been lasting for several days. Fix it or at least provide some explanations if you don’t mind.

    > Google Chrome is following in Safari’s footsteps by introducing a new feature that allows users to move the Chrome address bar to the bottom of the screen, enhancing user accessibility and interaction.

    Firefox did this long before Safari.

    Basically they’ll do anything except fair royalties.
