Google and Microsoft joined hands to improve spell-check experience on Chrome

Microsoft and Google are continuously developing the spell check experience of Chrome browser. They have been working together for a long time to ensure precision in spell check and accuracy.

The latest version of Chrome and Edge have in-built windows spell check feature, instead of Hunspell open-source implementation. The benefit of the features is that now the users of Windows 8.1 will have a better support system for URLs, acronyms, email addresses, and an improved shared custom dictionary.

Microsoft’s team said, “This feature was developed as a collaboration between Google and Microsoft engineers in the Chromium project, enabling all Chromium-based browsers to benefit from Windows Spellcheck integration.” 

But, what if you don’t see the built-in feature in your window? In that case, you need to enable the flag and search for, “Use the Windows OS spell checker” and restart. 

Microsoft surprised everyone by moving to Chrome last year and since then have been helping Google to update the spell-check. Further, they are also helping in improving the scrolling with percentage and bounce affect scrolling.
