Using the Smart Copy Chrome Extension

The feature helps you write the following sentence or paragraph, expand on the content you've written, summarize longer content, or rewrite one of your existing lines of content.

When building your landing pages, the Chrome extension works in Gmail, Google Docs, Grammarly, or even directly in Unbounce.

  2. Click the Add To Chrome - It's Free button, or Install the extension directly from the Chrome web app store.

  3. Once installed, the plugin icon will appear in your Chrome Extensions tab.
  4. Be sure to enable the plugin within Google Chrome, as seen in the below screenshot. When toggled, the extension will appear highlighted in green :
