We are thrilled to unveil the French version of Zia, Writer's AI-powered writing assistant. Click here to read the blog in French.
Ever since we added Zia to Writer, she's been a favorite among users. In fact, Zia has become so popular that we continuously get requests for a multilingual version. We were excited to fulfill this popular demand. So, we added Spanish, the most requested language. Then, we started teaching Zia French.
