Microsoft recently updated a feature within Microsoft Word online that helps you rewrite sentences. Previously, the Rewrite suggestions feature for Word online only suggested rewrites to phrases. Now, you can highlight an entire sentence and see several suggestions that improve the flow of a sentence. The feature is available now for Word online and requires a Microsoft 365 subscription or Office 365 subscription. Microsoft announced the feature and discussed how it works in a recent tech community post.
Microsoft first showcased the Rewrite suggestions feature at Build conference in 2019, though at the time it could only suggest rewrites to phrases. The feature utilizes a neural network and machine learning models that have been trained with millions of sentences.
To use the feature, you just select a sentence and click "Rewrite Suggestions." If suggestions are available, Word shows you several suggestions to choose from. The feature focuses on making sentences concise, readable, and fluid.
At least for now, the feature is only available for Word online.
