Back in April, Microsoft Editor made its debut on Outlook for iOS, bringing its editing recommendations to iPhone and iPad. Microsoft is now updating on the ongoing journey of Editor and says it has made it to Outlook across all platforms.
That means users of Outlook on macOS, Windows, Android, web, and iOS can now access Microsoft Editor. Of course, the feature has been available in other Microsoft 365/Office 365 apps – such as Word – on those platforms for some time.
“Microsoft Editor is now available across more Outlook apps. Editor will help you write with confidence when using Outlook for Windows, Mac, Web, iOS and Android with a supported account type.”
If you're unfamiliar with Editor, it made its debut with the launch of Microsoft 365 Personal and Family early in 2020. Launched on Microsoft Word, the feature later become available on other Microsoft Office apps and web browsers.
Microsoft Editor is a push against Grammarly. Office users in theory no longer need to use third-party services like Grammarly to expand the built-in editing functions on Word and other apps. Microsoft Editor claims to be a service that offers spelling and grammar suggestions integrated into Office.
It provides writing suggestions such as style changes, spelling, grammar, and sentence construction. With its debut on iOS, Microsoft Editor means users on iPhone or iPad can use the feature in Outlook.
The Editor feature is available for free. However, advanced grammar suggestions, writing refinement tips, and spell checking are limited to Microsoft 365 subscribers. Microsoft says Editor is turned on by default in Outlook but users can disable it through settings.
Tip of the day: When Windows 10 or Windows 11 has issues, it's not rare to run into startup problems. Corrupted Windows files, incorrect system configuration, driver failure, or registry tweaks can all cause this issue.
Using Windows startup repair can fix boot issues caused by the most prevalent issues. Though it may seem that all is lost when you run into startup problems, it's important to try a Windows boot repair so you can at least narrow down the source of the issue. If it doesn't work, you may have to reinstall the OS or test your hardware.
