1. What are QuillBot and Grammarly?

QuillBot and Grammarly are advanced writing assistant tools that use artificial intelligence to check or rewrite content. They can be of great help in all your content writing endeavors. Their main task is to find and correct grammatical and spelling errors, evaluate the meaning of the text, and change the necessary places if needed. They also have plagiarism checking, summarizing, and many other writing-related helper features.

2. QuillBot vs Grammarly – Tools Comparison


 QuillBot is widely known for its paraphrasing feature. It paraphrases sentences in seconds. In addition, there are different modes of Quillbot. You can edit the text as you want by putting it in the desired mode. They are Standard, Fluency, Creative, Creative+, Formal, Shorten, and Expand modes.

Grammarly doesn’t have anything like this. It doesn’t paraphrase and summarizes the text.

Grammar Checker

Grammarly, as its name suggests, is the best grammar checker tool online for any kind of text. It finds and fixes grammar errors faster than other writing assistant tools. Furthermore, it provides suggestions for improving the structure of your sentences.

However, I realized that QuillBot finds more grammar errors than Grammarly and provides a one-click button to fix them. Also, it suggests changing words and sentences and showing alternative ones. In general, both tools are better at finding grammar mistakes than Google Docs and Word, but the key to Grammarly’s success is that it contextualizes grammatical errors. However, I preferred QuillBot after realizing that it finds more grammar errors than Grammarly.

Grammarly found 7 errors, while QuillBot found 10 in the same text.

Plagiarism Checker

Both tools have excellent plagiarism checking. However, if you want to use the tool for freelancing, online content, blogging, or something like this, I suggest you use Grammarly, as it checks billions of pages on the web against plagiarism. And, there is access to Grammarly’s plagiarism checker for premium subscribers without additional fees.

On the other hand, the QuillBot plagiarism tool works better than Grammarly as it’s designed for formal documentation, academic writing, and essays for students and teachers. But it costs more than Grammarly. It’s because it charges per page. It costs $7.50 per 20 pages, about 250 words per page.

Other Tools:

QuillBot also includes summarizing, citation, and SEO-checking tools. The Citation tool saves academics and essayists hours of time formatting papers by correctly generating citations. QullBot helps to improve content for SEO purposes if you have a business online.

In Grammarly, you can see the overall score of your content on top that evaluates your work based on clarity, structure, deliverability, and engagement. Also, it analyzes reading time, speaking time, and sentence count in detail. It may be helpful if you create video content.


The ideal approach to using QuillBot and Grammarly to check any document without continuously logging in is through add-ons and extensions. QuillBot doesn’t have as many extensions and plug-ins as Grammarly. Grammarly is available as a Chrome, Safari, Word Extension, Firefox, and Google Docs Extension too.

Additionally, the Google Docs add-on, Chrome extension, and Word add-on are all provided by Quillbot. Because you don’t have to repeatedly check your documents on the official website, these extensions save you a ton of time.

What are the free and paid features?

With QuillBot’s free plan, you can use its paraphrasing, grammar, citation, and summarizing tools. You can’t use different modes and a plagiarism checker tool on a free plan.

Grammarly offers more features with its free version. You can use spelling correction, punctuation errors, and tone detection in a free plan. Furthermore, you can use its extensions for free in order to get a taste of its flexibility and ease of use. More extensive features are available in the paid version.
