Google Chrome offers a variety of web services that enhance your overall browsing experience. Web services range from suggesting alternative sites to quickly loading pages when you can’t see a particular site. The prediction service determines the fate of the browser well in advance to speed up page loading times. Google Chrome also has a built-in spell checker.

Many users don’t know this because spell checking is disabled by default. To use it, you need to enable it in your preferences. When you enable spell checking, the web service turns on and detects misspelled words. It does this by sending the words you type in the browser to Google. Google then returns the corrected version or product suggestions.

To add more languages to Google Chrome Spell Checker

The language you want to spell-check is not displayed in Chrome? Chrome only retrieves the default language from your system for spell checking.
