From multi-column layouts and no-markup editing to collaborative code snippets and a new mobile app, we spent the greater part of 2017 making sure Writer serves an even wider set of users. Huge thanks to all you writers out there for the incredible feedback you offered!

Read the complete list of capabilities we had added to Writer in 2017 here.


2018 – The year of Zia

Zia, the AI powered assistant first unveiled in Zoho CRM last year, will make its way into Writer in early 2018. From making recommendations based on readability scores, sentence structures and grammar errors to intelligent task management within Writer, Zia will help improve your writing style and also save time.

Grammar recommendations from Zia

Interested? We’re opening up early access to Zia’s grammar capabilities right away, and would love to get some constructive feedback from you. Request access to Zia beta and we’ll send over an invite.


Wishing you a joyful holiday season and an amazing new year! ?
