Google brings Gboard’s real-time Grammar Check to all Android devices
No longer a feature limited to Pixel models only, Google is making Gboard’s Grammar Check available for other Android devices. No, the feature will not perform a virtual welfare check on your grandma in Boca Raton, but it will alert you in real-time if you failed to put a comma in the appropriate spot or if you put a comma where one doesn’t belong. Consider it Google’s answer to the Grammerly app.
In this example, Grammar Check underlines the wrong use of the word Your suggesting a replacement. The replacement is tapped and the sentence is automatically fixed
In the above example, an Android user texts a friend to remind him to move “you’re clock” ahead for Daylight Savings Time. The feature underlines in blue the word “you’re” since it is incorrectly used in this sentence. Tapping on the underlined word results in the suggestion to use the spelling “your” and tapping on that recommendation corrects the sentence by substituting “your” for “you’re.”
To use Grammar check, make sure it is enabled on Gboard
Make sure that you have Grammar Check enabled on the Gboard app. to do that, open up Google Messages or any other app that uses Gboard. Tap on the gear icon to open the settings. From the list, tap on Text correction and scroll down to the bottom to see Grammar check. Make sure it is toggled on.

Also rolling out now is a new feature that converts text that a user has written and converts it into a sticker for use when messaging. This was announced as part of the March Feature Drop for Pixel phones and had been spotted by some redditors being tested by Google as far back as November.
