The features include new ways for Google Docs’ AI to brainstorm, summarize, and generate text; the ability for Gmail to create complete emails from users’ brief bullet points; and for Google Slides to create AI imagery, audio, and video to illustrate presentations.
The first of the company’s many new features, AI writing tools in Documents and Gmail, will only be made accessible to a handful of US-based “trusted testers” this month, despite the company’s announcement of a plethora of new capabilities. The public will subsequently be able to use these capabilities, among others, later this year, although Google didn’t indicate when.
Users can draft, reply, summarize, and prioritize their Gmail and brainstorm, proofread, write, and rewrite in Docs. They can bring their creative vision to life with auto-generated images, video, and audio in Slides.
The AI features will enable one to go from raw data to insights and analysis through auto-completion, formula generation, and contextual categorization in Sheets. You can also generate new backgrounds and capture notes in Meet, while enabling workflows for getting things done in Chat.
