Grammarly Brings Synonyms to Mobile

Posted on August 20, 2019 by Paul Thurrott in Android, iOS, Mobile with 4 Comments

Grammarly announced today that its Grammarly mobile keyboard is being updated to support synonyms on the go.

“Writing on your phone often means typing fast, maybe while doing something else at the same time,” the firm notes. “But it doesn’t have to mean sloppy writing. You might already know that Grammarly’s mobile keyboard makes it easy to compose high-quality, mistake-free text even when you’re on the move. Today we’re enhancing the experience, introducing something new and fresh, and different, and distinctive, and notable. Synonyms are coming to the Grammarly Keyboard.”

The new feature will work as you might expect: As you type, the Grammarly mobile keyboard will offer synonyms for the currently-typed word just above the top row of virtual keys. You can also move the cursor around to see synonyms for previously-typed words.

“It’s a terrific (and convenient) way to diversify your vocabulary and possibly even discover new words,”
Grammarly explains. “After all, sometimes a few well-chosen words can transform a bland message into an exciting one.”

To enable Grammarly’s new mobile synonyms feature, open the Grammarly companion app on your phone and navigate to Settings > Synonyms.
