Grammarly is a pretty popular browser extension if you want to make sure that what you write in your documents and emails are grammatically correct. However, it seems that in an update to the service, the folks at Grammarly have introduced a new feature in which it will be able to detect the tone of your emails.

Given that sometimes the tone of your message can get lost in written form, it means that it can sometimes lead to misunderstandings where the reader could think that you’re being rude, arrogant, sarcastic, and so on. So with Grammarly’s new tone detector, it will be able to gauge what kind of tone your message has so that if you want, you can make some changes to make it sound more like what you had intended.

According to Grammarly, “Grammarly’s tone detector relies on a combination of rules and machine learning to identify signals in a piece of writing that contribute to its overall tone. By analyzing your word choice, phrasing, punctuation, and even capitalization, Grammarly can tell you how your message is likely to sound to someone reading it.”

Grammarly’s tone detector is currently in beta but if you’d like to take it for a spin, it will be available for Chrome on email sites such as Gmail and Yahoo, and it is also expected to eventually find its way to Safari and Firefox and all text fields in the future as well.
