Google won’t stop at updating the GMail considering how far this has come, it’s beginning to pride itself as a real content and messaging tool all in one. There are new features added day in, day out but the auto-correct is one of the best yet. In the very near future, the GMail application will enable you understand where you’re wrong in your vocabulary building as well as misspellings.
This kind of feature had initially been added on to the Google Docs application making document creation easy and error free to some certain degrees. When composing an email, what Google takes to be grammatical flubs — say, an incorrect verb tense or the wrong homophone — will be underlined in blue. You can then right-click those words to see suggestions on how to fix them.

If you’re prone to typing things like “definately” or “neccessary,” your life is about to get easier. Gmail is upping its spellcheck game with automatic correction of “common spelling mistakes” — a feature that’s obviously familiar from mobile typing, but is sadly uncommon in desktop settings.

The time for the release of the new feature is expected to roll out by mid-September even though there hasn’t been any announcement from Google yet but it’s quite possible we start seeing those features as soon as possible.
Google has clarified that only G Suite accounts will get the grammar suggestions. Auto-correction, on the other hand, will work for both personal Gmail accounts and G Suite users.
Update (August 23, 2019) – We’ve updated this article to clarify that the grammar suggestion feature is only available to G Suite users, not personal Gmail accounts. The as-you-type autocorrection feature is available to all users, including G Suite and personal Gmail accounts.
