MC308286 – Updated May 10, 2022: Microsoft has updated the post to provide additional details. Thank you for your patience.

This update will add the Microsoft Editor service to SharePoint Pages and News and enabling their spellcheck and grammar capabilities. This will allow proofreading to take place in SharePoint without relying on the Editor browser extension. This feature changes the suggestion’s colors to monochrome when they’re shown on a themed background to increase visibility.

If you prefer to write without proofing, you can turn Editor off for a given page in Page details.
