To get started with the Chrome extension,

  1. Install the app directly from the Chrome web app store.
    • If you have trouble accessing the extension once installed, try rebooting Google Chrome or double-check that Google Chrome is up-to-date.
  2. Once installed, be sure to enable the plugin within Google Chrome, as seen in the below screenshot:

    Remember, if you are on the Free Starter Plan, you will have access to 5 credits to use with the Chrome extension. If you upgrade to a paid plan, you can create unlimited content. See more in our Smart Copy FAQ documentation.

  3. Once installed and enabled in your Chrome, highlight a snippet of text and apply any of the following copywriting features:

Expand

Automatically writes more content to expand and lengthen existing content on your page. Use the Expand feature to charge past writer's block and generate an entire paragraph of additional content:

Remix

Sift through multiple variations of copy suggestions by clicking the Next button.
