Microsoft Edge Receives Spellcheck Upgrade

Microsoft’s Chromium-based Edge browser will gain an all-new mechanism for spellcheck in version 83. The new feature, which is powered by Windows Spellcheck, will be available on all systems using Windows 8.1 and above.

The Windows spellcheck functionality is being ported over via the Spellcheck API that is integrated into the Windows operating system. Microsoft notes that the benefits of this adjustment include “support for additional languages and dialects, a shared custom dictionary, and better support for URLs, acronyms, and email addresses.”

The new spellcheck feature is available immediately.
