Grammarly’s Voice Detection Arrives on iOS and Android!

What’s New In Technology This Week

Article Reference:

Verbal communication can be very difficult sometimes through our mobile devices, but it is something we all do everyday. Grammarly made a voice detection feature back in 2019, that will now be available for mobile iOS and Android devices as well. This voice detection feature will “analyze the tone of the user and provide suggestions for a change so that the message can come across as intended to the readers.” This includes sounding critical, sympathetic, concerned, formal and so on. 

We’ve all been there: tapping away on our smartphones, trying to craft the perfect text or email, only to have the message misinterpreted. A missing comma sparks confusion, a terse tone comes across as rude, and what you meant to be a funny quip lands with a thud. But fret no more, iOS and Android users! The frustration of unclear mobile communication is about to be a thing of the past thanks to Grammarly’s powerful voice detection feature, finally arriving on your favorite devices.

Previously available only on desktop, Grammarly’s voice detection is a game-changer for anyone who relies on their smartphone for everyday communication. This innovative feature acts as your personal communication coach, analyzing the tone of your voice messages and written text. Whether you’re composing an email to your boss, firing off a quick text to a friend, or leaving a voice message for a colleague, Grammarly ensures your message lands exactly as you intend.

Here’s how this magic happens:

  1. Unlock the Power: First things first, update your Grammarly app on your iOS or Android device. This ensures you have access to the latest features, including the voice detection marvel.
  2. Activate Your Voice Coach: Head over to your Grammarly keyboard settings and find the voice detection option.With a simple tap, you’ve activated your on-the-go communication guardian.
  3. Craft Your Message: Now comes the fun part! Compose your message as usual, whether it’s a text, email, or even a voice note.
  4. Fine-Tune with a Tap: Once you’ve crafted your message, tap the familiar Grammarly logo (the G) to activate the voice detection feature.

That’s it! Grammarly takes over from there. It analyzes your word choice, punctuation, and other stylistic elements within your message. To ensure the most accurate analysis, Grammarly typically requires at least 150 words of text, but it can still provide valuable insights for shorter messages as well. Based on this analysis, Grammarly suggests subtle adjustments to your message, helping you strike the perfect tone – be it friendly, assertive, formal, or anything in between.

Gone are the days of worrying about misunderstandings or unintended rudeness. With Grammarly’s voice detection on your iOS or Android device, you can communicate with confidence, ensuring your message is clear, concise, and delivers exactly what you intend. So go forth and express yourself clearly – Grammarly’s got your back (or should we say,thumbs?)!
