Once the feature is rolled out, Word will begin to produce real-time text predictions while the users type documents. These predictions will be all grayed-out until either typed over, approved (by pressing the TAB key), or rejected (by pressing the ESC key).

As per Microsoft, the service will improve over time by learning and adapting to the writing style as well as linguistic preferences of each user, help minimize spelling and grammatical errors. This new feature will, of course, overall act as a timesaver. Users can turn this feature off anytime when finding it unnecessary. 

At the time of this writing, the feature is still under development. But the good news is that it's likely to be released for users of the Windows application soon, maybe by the end of March 2021. It's unclear when the new feature will be available for the web client.
