1. ChatGPT for Google
If you’re an avid user of ChatGPT, then ChatGPT extension may help boost your productivity. Now you no longer have to visit the ChatGPT site every time you want to ask a question. Simply enable the ChatGPT extension in Chrome (or any Chromium browser like Edge and Brave). Now, whenever you search anything on Google, it will parallelly search the same thing on ChatGPT and show results on the right side of the Google Search. If you want, you can also use the chatbox to begin a conversation with ChatGPT.
Merlin is an all-in-one AI extension for Chrome that not only delivers ChatGPT-powered results in Google Search but can also summarize any YouTube Video into text format within seconds.
That’s not all, you can also access ChatGPT on any website on the fly. Just use Ctrl + M (Windows) or Cmd + M (Mac) and it will open a ChatGPT-powered chatbox, which you can use to create tweets, job cover letters, codes, etc.
In the free plan, you’re only allowed to have 51 queries per day, but if that seems not enough, you can always switch to the pro plan, which starts at $19/month with up to 2000 queries and 1500 words per query.
Manganum is a productivity workspace extension that hosts many features, such as notes, a calculator, Google Tasks, and a calendar. But what most of you would find more interesting is the integration of the ChatGPT chatbot in the extension. You can access it anytime from the sidebar and use it to quickly get answers to your questions, or even engage in casual conversation without ever having to leave your workspace.
Overall, if you want to boost productivity, then Manganum is one of the best AI Chrome extensions on the internet right now.
Grammarly is one of the most popular Chrome extensions, especially among writers. It uses AI to understand the context and, based on that, suggest all the possible grammatical and spelling mistakes you may have made. This can make life easier for students or working professionals who frequently compose business emails, write academic papers, publish blogs, and more.
For many people, the free version of Grammarly would be more than enough, but if you want more advanced features, you may consider upgrading to Grammarly Premium, which starts at $144 /year.
Feature of Grammarly Premium:
- Full-sentence rewriting
- Word choice
- Tone suggestions
- English fluency and more
Wordtune is a free AI Chrome browser extension that helps you write content in a clear, concise, and authentic manner. Unlike Grammarly, it will not solely focus on your grammatical or spelling mistakes. Instead, when you highlight a text or phrase, it will give you a list of suggestions related to your context. You can then pick the entire sentence, phrase, or just a word to make your text more expressive without changing its meaning.
You can also use this extension to change the tone of the writing to either formal or casual and adjust its length. What’s more? You can also use the Add Spice feature to add flair to your writing, such as writing humorously, emphasizing important points, adding facts, stats, and more.
So whether you want to send a professional email to a client, create a blog post, or send a message to your colleague on Slack, Wordtune will help you express yourself better.
Note: In the extension, you won’t find the grammar or spelling checker feature. For that, you have to use the Wordtune Editor. Also, in the free plan, you can only rewrite 10 sentences per day. To get unlimited rewrites, you have to subscribe to their premium plan, which starts at ~$119/year.
If you often spend your time tweeting or replying to tweets, then you will love this AI Chrome extension. It can drastically reduce the amount of time you spend crafting a tweet by leveraging AI to generate a tweet based on the context.
For instance, the below screenshot clearly depicts how TweetGPT works. Just ask TweetGPT “reply to this tweet”, select the emotional tone and it will instantly create an engaging tweet for you.
7. Copyleaks – AI Content Detector
We live in an era where the difference between human writing and AI writing has become hard to detect. And this is just the beginning; you will soon see many websites, groups, and community pages will be full of poor or low-value content.
That’s where the Copyleaks Chrome extension comes into play, which helps you detect whether the content is written by AI or humans. This will not only help you avoid visiting such low-quality websites but also if you run a blog or group. This will help you filter out all the AI-written content from your platform. Thus saving you time and resources that would otherwise be spent manually reviewing content.
8. New Tab with ChatGPT (aka Tabrr)
If you want to take your Chrome experience to the next level, this is the extension you should watch out for. It not only brings lots of productivity tools to the table but also a custom AI-powered ChatGPT chatbox.
You can use the chatbox just like you would with the official ChatGPT and the best part is it doesn’t require your ChatGPT account access to generate an answer. So it would be safe to assume that your privacy & security won’t be compromised. Plus, you can even customize the appearance of the chatbox to your liking.
9. Wordtune Read
If you’re short on time and need to stay up-to-date on the latest news, then this is the perfect extension for you. Just open a news article you’re interested in and it will instantly give you a short and precise summary of that article. That’s not all, it can even create a summary of any YouTube video (except songs).
The crazy part is that it can also translate any video from almost any language to English in real-time with an accurate summary. And if you want you can save these summaries in Word document format.
The only caveat is it offers just 3 summaries per month and to get unlimited summaries, you need to subscribe to their premium plan, which starts at $9.99/month. However, if you’re a student or educator, you can get an additional 30% discount on it.
10. YouTube Summary with ChatGPT
If you hate to watch long YouTube videos or you’re in a rush and quickly want to get the summary of any YouTube video, then this is one of the best AI Chrome extensions for that role. With just one click, it will instantly transcribe the YouTube video to text. And if you want to get a summary of that video, click on the ChatGPT icon and it will generate a summary for you in bullet points.
Also, unlike Wordtune Read, here you are not restricted to 3 summaries, so you can use it as many times as you want for free. The only issue you might face would be sometimes it fails to transcribe & summarize YouTube videos. However, it mostly has to do with non-English videos.
