Autocorrect now available for Google Docs on web
Quick launch summary
Last year, Google announced improved as-you-type spelling and grammar corrections in Gmail. Now, Google is bringing that functionality to Google Docs on the web.
Autocorrect helps you compose documents quickly and with confidence. Misspelled words will automatically be corrected while typing and denoted with a grey dashed underline. As you continue typing, this dashed line will disappear.
If you need to undo a correction, you can simply hit backspace, select “Undo” while hovering over the autocorrected word, or use keyboard shortcuts like Command+Z.
