Google will use the power of AI to a higher level. With the intention of utilizing the opportunity of generative AI and helping the users to “create, connect and collaborate”, Google has declared the integration of AI powered tools with its workspace for personal, business and community use. To summarize Google is giving the potential of AI tools to the Docs and Gmail that will help the users write, edit or create any topic in an instant way.
Though the tool is quite familiar to ChatGPT or Bing, Google is using the AI tool at its next level and integrated the AI-powered writing tool within Docs and Gmail to ease the work of the users. With this feature a user can work on the Google workspace without referring to other websites or browsers for help. Google said that with the introduced gen-next Google workspace with AI-powered tools will enable its users to achieve goals, across Gmail, Docs, Slides, Sheets, Meet, and Chat.
The following can be the benefits of the new google workspace for its users:
- Draft, reply, summarize, and prioritize on Gmail.
- Brainstorm, proofread, write, and rewrite in Docs.
- Create 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.
Though all the AI tools were promising but most gained attention will be to see the new AI opportunity linked with Google Docs and Gmail. It is so exciting to see that Google Docs will write the topic as soon as its user wants to write. Even if one is planning to write a resignation, Google will not only write but also, will send it to you. We all should thank ChatGPT for the idea and which the competitors like Google are exploring and it has definitely some more planned features in its box for the competitors.
Let’s go through what Google Docs and Gmail are capable of using the AI:
Help people to write: The user needs to give a command to the AI box by typing the topic and an instant draft will be generated. With the collaboration of the AI partner the draft can be refined, edited or more suggestions can be asked if required as per Google’s official blog post.
The tool will not only help in brainstorming or conceptualising the ideas but will also help the user to start writing on any topic while facing difficulty in doing so right from essays to job descriptions and even scripts for videos. AI is there to help you with everything.
Rewrite: The tool will help the user to rewrite any topic by setting the tone and writing style. For example, if you have the notes or highlights for a refined writeup or few bullet points to write down a summary, AI tools integrated with Docs and Gmail will help the users to formulate a refined and polished article.
Gmail users can also give voice commands to the AI tool by hitting the “I’m feeling lucky” option in Gmail.
To summarise AI will do all the work for you but now the question arises whether it will replace them? According to google the AI tool will definitely not replace humans but will be in control of them.
” Sometimes the AI gets things wrong, sometimes it delights you with something offbeat, and oftentimes it requires guidance. With all this in mind, we’re designing our products in accordance with Google’s AI Principles that keep the user in control, letting AI make suggestions that you’re able to accept, edit, and change,” says Google.
Before making the tools available to the public for everyone’s access Google for the time being is bringing the new generative AI experiences to selective and trusted users on a rolling basis throughout the year.
