Autocorrect on Android is reasonably advance but it’s limited to spell check, it won’t check for poor grammar. On the desktop, Grammarly offers tools that go beyond simple spell check, and now you can get those same tools on Android. The Grammarly Android keyboard will scan your text for any grammatical errors, fixing most and offering suggested edits on more advanced problems.

While the keyboard lacks a lot of features others offer, the grammar check prevents missed commas, suggests edits with passive voices, and prevents you from using the wrong “then” or “than.” It’s useful if you’re often writing emails or responding to professional contacts. Heck, it’ll even help you look a little less silly when you use the wrong “you’re” on Twitter.

Grammarly helps with spelling and grammar mistakes at the same time

Grammarly keyboard is easy to set up, and you can quickly switch between the GBoard and the Grammarly one. The keyboard works similar to how GBoard does, with correction suggestions a top of the keys as you type. Those recommendations will also explain the suggested edit. The only notable gripe from me is the keyboard doesn’t offer as an advanced autocorrect as Google can. I’ve typed words a couple of times now, and Grammarly wasn’t able to autocorrect it. On the keyboard, you won’t find any themes, swipe support, or layout options on the keyboard, which is a deal breaker for some.

QUICK NOTE: Free firmware downloads are made possible thanks in part to OVH Hosting & Dedicated Servers – Updato's #1 choice for hosting and storage solutions! Show your support and check 'em out.

The app is free to download. Their service does have a premium subscription, but it isn’t required to use the app. If you do use the free plan, you’ll get basic grammar corrections, still more advanced than autocorrect. The premium plan is expensive, coming in at $30 a month. If you do upgrade, you’ll get more sophisticated grammar suggestions, which is helpful when you’re in school or even at your job.

You can now download the Grammarly Android keyboard from Google Play now! Sound off about the Grammarly keyboard in comments below.
