How Well Does the Microsoft Editor Compares to Grammarly?

Their Working

Grammarly has quick explanations for any error that you make. In this way, it will also help you to grow and mature as a writer and its totally up to you to take the advice as it is not always accurate.

The Editor offers basic corrections of grammar and spelling. It also suggests you how to improve your writing and shorten the lengthy sentences.

Cost Factor

Both Grammarly and Editor offer free services and premium ones too. So when it comes to the paid versions, the Editor is more on the good side.

So premium Grammarly services are for $29.95 a month and $ 140 a year. However, the company offers discounts every now and then. On the other hand, Microsoft 365 gives you full Microsoft Office suite and 1 TB of Cloud Storage along with the Editor. It costs $9.99 a month and $99.99 a year.



You see Microsoft Editor is very new in the field so of course, it will grow over time but as of now, Grammarly has more features and some special ones like the one that detects the tone of the text that you have written. Grammarly is more widely available and Editor is restricted to a few platforms.

Microsoft Editor is more cost-effective and combined with its proofreading service with Office suite and cloud storage just make it even better. It might be not as good in terms of features as of now but we can definitely expect some improvements over time.
