According to Android Central, a new feature found in Google’s virtual keyboard app Gboard, is only available on the new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. This feature detects grammatical errors as you type and corrects them in real time. The function starts after three words are written and works even if a sentence being written is incomplete.
Exclusively for the new Pixel 6 handsets, Gboard will correct grammatical errors when they occur in real time
Errors are highlighted on the screen with suggested replacements at the top of the keyboard. Right now, the feature only supports English, but there are plans to add additional language support. To prevent the feature from being a memory pig, it only takes up 20 MB of storage space while processing 60 input characters of 22ms. Instead of taking place in the cloud, the feature runs locally on your Pixel 6 Series model.
Gboard feature that corrects real-time grammar is exclusive to the Pixel 6 line
Google has not said whether this feature will eventually be made available for other Android phones. Google also introduced Assistant Voice Writing on the Gboard for the Pixel 6 Series. This is more than the typical hands-free dictation available today with the Gboard app. Assistant voice writing starts with saying “Hey Google, type”.
Certain commands will remove the last sentence (“Clear”), and the entire text field can be cleared by saying “Clear All”. You can delete the last word by saying “delete”. You can delete a specific word by saying “Undo [specific word]. “In the worst case, spelling a word will allow the Assistant to type a word with the correct spelling. Emoji can be added by saying the name of the emoji followed by the word” emoji “. For example, you can ask for LOL emoji, heart-eye emoji, thank-you emoji and more.
When writing an email, you can say “Specify recipient”, “Add [contact] to Cc “and” Set subject. “And when you are ready to send the message, simply say” Send “.
Some users have Assistant Voice Write down on their phone; here is a solution from Google
Some Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro users have not been able to use these alternative writing methods because the feature has been dimmed on their phones. On Reddit, a Pixel 6 Pro owner wrote: “I just got my Pixel 6 Pro and I have an issue where the ability to enable assistant voice typing in Gboard is dimmed. I can not enable it. Google Assistant is enabled and works fine so I know it’s not the cause of the problem I’ve installed all the latest app and Android updates but the possibility is still dimmed. I tried to chat with Pixel Support but they did not help much. does anyone else have this problem with their new phone? “
Order Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro
As it turns out, the answer to that question is “Yes”. Another Reddit subscriber says, “The same problem is happening here! Hopefully we can get a solution soon. I’ve heard that for some people it was activated overnight.” Another post on Reddit reveals a solution that allegedly came from Google Support:
First, use the app store to update all pre-installed apps.
Go to Settings > System > Language and input > Language and remove all languages except English (US).
Enter the Google Voice Typing setting and change this setting to English only (US).
Follow these steps and Assistant Voice Writing will no longer be dimmed. If not, restart the phone and check it out again.
Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro were released last Thursday, and the inventory for the latter model is running low in the Google Store. Your best bet for finding the model you want is to check your provider’s inventory. Businesses like Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T both offer models, as do other wireless providers such as Google Fi and Visible. Retailers like Amazon and Best Buy may also have the model you want in the color and configuration you are looking for.
