Microsoft Word for Windows will soon support text predictions. According to the Microsoft 365 roadmap, the feature is in development and could roll out as soon as next month (via Neowin). The Microsoft 365 roadmap is a guide for feature rollout, not a set of firm release dates, so we may have to wait a bit longer to see the feature.
The text predictions feature works similarly to Google Docs’ Smart Compose option or text suggestions on some smartphone keyboards. It uses machine learning to predict what words should appear next within a sentence. Authors can then accept the suggestions by pressing the Tab key or reject them by pressing Escape.
If you prefer that predictions don’t show up at all, you can just completely disable the feature. The option to turn it off is especially handy if you’re creating a document in which suggestions are less likely to be accurate.
Microsoft already started rolling out text predictions to Outlook for Windows earlier this month. Text prediction is also available for Outlook for the web and Outlook for Android.
Since the predictions use machine learning, they should get better over time as you use them more.
Productivity across work and life
The new Microsoft 365 subscription for individuals and families brings with it new AI-powered features and benefits inside Microsoft Office, including Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Excel, as and also enhances Microsoft Edge, Teams, and Family Safety across Windows 10, Xbox, Android, and iOS.
