Google to Release AI Tools for Google Workspace
In an effort to compete with Microsoft’s upcoming GPT-4, Google has announced a suite of new AI tools for Google Workspace. The first set of tools will be available on Gmail and Docs.
According to a blog post by Johanna Voolich Wright, Vice President of Product for Google Workspace, the company will be incorporating a range of new AI tools for Workspace. These tools will be available on Gmail, Docs, Slides, Sheets, Meet, and Chat. However, they will be rolled out to testers first throughout the year before being released to the public.
Future Workspace Features
- Draft, reply, summarize, and prioritize your Gmail.
- Brainstorm, proofread, write, and rewrite in Docs.
- Bring your creative vision to life with auto-generated images, audio, and video in Slides.
- Go from raw data to insights and analysis via auto-completion, formula generation, and contextual categorization in Sheets.
- Generate new backgrounds and capture notes in Meet.
- Enable workflows for getting things done in Chat.
Docs and Gmail will be among the first of Google’s products to receive the new AI tools. These tools will help with generating, summarizing, and brainstorming text. Users can simply type a topic they want to write about and the AI will take it from there. Once the draft is generated, users can refine and edit the text, as well as get additional suggestions. In addition to creating a draft, there will be a feature that allows the user to adjust the tone and composition of the writing.
The new AI features will be launched this month through Google’s trusted tester program, starting with the US and eventually expanding to other countries. There is no word yet on when the features will be available to the public.
