Gmail will soon automatically correct your typos and grammar goof-ups

Ever made a typo in an email so bad that your life flashed before your eyes as you sent it? Worry not, Google‘s making sure it doesn’t happen again with a new update for Gmail that’ll point out basic spellings and grammar mistakes as you type.

The update, presently rolling out for G Suite users on web, will use AI to point out errors in your email. If you’ve made a slight typo, Gmail will automatically correct the spelling for you.

Autocorrection of common spelling errors

For grammar mistakes, Gmail will show a squiggly blue line under the erroneous phase.
