Agreed, this would be invaluable for productivity. I am constantly switching between English & Portuguese and having to pin the Editor settings and go back to change the language every time is a constant pain point for me. For Editor to automatically recognise the language I was writing in (even if I have to add them to a list in advance) would be right on Microsoft's message of staying in your workflow. Thanks!
just make switch between languages easier that will be a good start
ex: when clicking on editor extension then proofing language you should be able choose between a number of languages you usually use and not be redirected to the entension on a new tab.

It would make sense to automatically recognize language only within a user-defined set of languages.
Say, I normally (99%) write in English and Russian. Ukrainian language uses roughly the same character set as Russian, but I don't write in Ukrainian, so don't include it in auto-detection.
That said, there should be a way to allow in certain place writing in other languages. Say, I love transcribing Albanian songs. I like to be able to type in Albanian, but only in certain places. Otherwise only Russian and English (en-gb and en-us) for me please.
That should make the task easier.

The method must recognize the language not depending on keyboard one, because I, for example may type on Russian using Ukrainian keyboard or backwards, because they both require Cyrillic keyboard.

This feature has been in Microsoft Word for decades now, but unfortunately was never picked up by other MS teams (Windows Input, Edge...). It's a must for the large number of people who toggle between English and their native language all day - without it, it's rather useless.
Microsoft own the techno for this with SwiftKey ;-)
This is crucial for me to be able to use the plugin, since I write in multiple languages constantly, often switching in the same sentence. Typical use case is something like:
[Swedish: "What do you think about writing] [English: The estimated completion date it...?]"

we already have that on microsoft teams, please double check with the pg from that team.
