Upgrading from the WriQ add-on

If you have previously utilized the WriQ add-on in Google Docs, you will now notice that you receive the following message when trying to use it:

This is because we have released an updated version of WriQ, which comes in the form of a Google Chrome extension.

To upgrade to the new version of WriQ, you’ll want to click the button that says Click here to update WriQ at the bottom of the message.

This will bring you to the Chrome Web Store, where you can add the new WriQ extension to your Google Chrome browser.

Clicking Add to Chrome will prompt a pop-up to add the extension.

Once it is added, you will be prompted to accept the permissions associated with the extension. These permissions allow WriQ to access your Google Docs.

Once you have accepted those permissions, you can go back into the original Google Doc and open the WriQ extension from the Chrome Browser.

For more details on how to use the new WriQ extension, please see The WriQ extension: Let's get started!
