Automattic Launches AI Assistant for WordPress
The assistant easily integrates with WordPress.com and all Jetpack-powered sites. It generates text based on natural language prompts and can create structured lists and tables within a blog post. It can also change the tonality of a post and make it more informal, skeptical, humorous, confident, or empathetic. The assistant supports 12 languages and offers better spelling and grammar correction features than WordPress’s built-in tools.

Competition in AI-Powered Writing Tools
In the past few months, numerous writing tools have introduced a different set of AI-powered features. Google and Microsoft are both integrating different AI features into their professional application suites — including Microsoft Word and Google Docs. Google introduced Project Tailwind, an AI-powered note-taking experience, at Google I/O last month. Other writing solutions like Grammarly have also introduced AI-aided tools into their apps.
