Microsoft is launching a brand new AI-based writing assistant called Microsoft Editor to help you write better and error-free emails, blogs, and documents. The key features of the tool are spelling and grammar corrections, plus refinement suggestions for anything you type across the web.
Microsoft Editor is available to download as an extension for Chrome and the New Microsoft Edge browser to use on any website, plus Microsoft has also integrated the new Editor into the Word and Outlook.
Download Microsoft Editor for Chrome
You can get the Microsoft Editor extension for Chrome from the Chrome Web Store link below.
Click ‘Add to Chrome’ button on the Chrome Web Store to install the Microsoft Editor extension in your browser.
Once installed, click on the Microsoft Editor extension icon (a blue pencil with three lines) next to the address bar in Chrome to sign-in with your Microsoft account and begin using the extension.
Note: If you’re unable to sign-in to Microsoft Editor extension, try with a different Chrome profile. It worked for us.
Download Microsoft Editor for Edge
Microsoft Editor is, of course, available for the Chromium-based New Microsoft Edge browser as well. And you don’t need to go to the Chrome Web Store to download it like you might be doing for most extensions on the browser.
Microsoft Editor is available to download from the Microsoft Edge Add-ons website for Edge (link below).
Click on the ‘Get’ button to download and install the Microsoft Editor extension in your browser.
Once installed, click on the Microsoft Editor extension icon next to the address bar in the browser, and sign-in with your Microsoft Account to begin using the extension.
Note: If you’re unable to sign-in to Microsoft Editor extension, try with a different profile in Edge.
Microsoft Editor is still under development. If you’re unable to sign-in or use it in the browser yet (even with a different browser profile), then we would suggest you wait until the extension is widely for everyone on 21st April 2020.
