Advances in AI technology have turned the concept of a computer writing for you from science-fiction to reality. Now, there are plenty of online tools and programs that can generate everything from emails to full-on blog posts at the push of a button.
Many of them even integrate directly into your Google Chrome browser as extensions, so you can access them wherever you browse and no matter what you’re writing.
Here are five of the very best for you to give a try.
First up on this list, we have Writecream. Writecream is a Google Chrome extension you can install and use easily from the Chrome Web Store to get more out of your writing.
To get started, you’ll need an account, but signing up is quick and easy and can be managed entirely from the extension menu, which you can access in the same place as any regular extension could be.
Once you’ve signed up, Writecream makes your writing easier. You’ll be presented with a menu that shows you all of the different tools that Writecream gives you access to, and there’s really quite a lot.
Writecream features over 35 different tools for you to give a shot, such as email personalization, blog ideas, social media post captions, headline generators, and many more. Depending on what you’re hoping to get out of Writecream, you may want to look through the tools yourself, but with so many options you’re bound to find something that you can use.
Unfortunately, AI writing can never replace humans, so once you’ve chosen your desired output, you’ll need to give Writecream a bit of information to get started. This won’t be much, often just a website link or brand name that pertains to the type of content that you want Writecream to generate for you. From there, the extension handles the rest, generating the content that you chose.
It’s worth noting that Writecream isn’t a free service, however. You’ll be given a starting balance to get a taste of what Writecream can provide for you, but from there you’ll need to pay a monthly subscription (starting from $29 per month) to upgrade your plan.
Next up, we have HyperWrite. If you’re worried about usability or being able to keep up, then HyperWrite is a great choice to get started with.
Once you download HyperWrite and sign up to its service, you’ll be greeted with a handy set of prompts asking how you plan to use it, and with what other services. This helps to make sure that HyperWrite is providing the right type of content for you.
From there, you’ll be given a tutorial showing you some of HyperWrite’s more useful features. This is great if you’re not sure what exactly it is that you want out of an AI writing extension.
Once you’ve looked through HyperWrite’s AutoWrite, TypeAhead, ReWrite, and AI Personalization features, you’ll be able to use HyperWrite however you see fit.
What’s great about HyperWrite is how it integrates directly into your existing writing process. You don’t have to go out of your way to make use of it. Instead, it appears automatically on almost any online writing platform that you might be using such as Gmail, Google Docs, and many others.
If you’re looking for something that integrates directly into your writing while still having the ability to produce AI-generated documents and templates, then Scalenut might just be what you’re looking for.
From the Scalenut dashboard, you’re able to access a huge range of different AI prompts that you can put forward to have this Chrome extension produce for you. For example, you can quickly generate content briefs, product descriptions, and more using these templates.
If you’re more focused on improving your own writing, however, you can instead use Scalenut for its integrated writing features. While writing an email, for instance, you may want to try and spice up what you’re writing with various features such as AI-drive rephrasing or simplifying tools.
You can choose templates here as well. Maybe you’re not sure how to start an email, or aren’t sure how to finish off a blog post. Either way, Scalenut comes with plenty of tools to help you create the content that you’re after.
Next on this list comes AISEO, a great little extension with a good range of features. If you’re looking for something that can help you expand on your writing or improve your content without being too overwhelming with its options, then AISEO is a great place to start.
AISEO effectively has seven modes that you can use. Unlike many of the best online AI tools for content creation, you can access these from just about any text input on the web, with a little popup which appears in the bottom right of the box.
There are tools that adjust some of the more basic structures of your sentences, such as paraphrasing what you’ve written, expanding on what you’ve written to make it longer, or shortening it to make it more concise.
There are tools to adjust tone, in order to make any sentence sound more formal, or to make your text sound more creative and inventive.
If you’re not sure what to write, there are also tools that will attempt to write something from scratch given a series of prompts, or even to finish off the last parts of your content for you if you get stuck on your conclusions or outros.
Finally, we have Compose AI. If you’re more interested in using an AI writing extension to help you with your emails and maybe the occasional Slack message, then Compose AI is a great tool for doing just that.
Compose AI advertises itself as an AI that writes your emails, which is a good indicator as to where and how exactly it excels. Using it is simple, too. All you need to do is open up an email, and you’ll find the prompt within the existing window.
Compose AI will ask you what you want to compose, and if you’re not sure what to ask the AI specifically, there are even examples to help you get a feel for it.
From there, Compose AI will generate a couple of different email options for you to choose from. You can easily generate more whenever you wish, and once you find one that feels right for you, all you have to do is select it, and it’ll be automatically input into the email for you.
Work Smarter, Not Harder
As you can see, there are a wide variety of different AI writer extensions available for Google Chrome. You can try them out easily whenever you wish, as they’re easy to install and uninstall at a moment’s notice.
