Google has announced that its Duet AI assistant would soon be available in all of its Workspace applications, including Gmail, Drive, Slides, Docs, and more.
According to the company, more than a million users have already tried out Google’s virtual assistant while the Duet technology has been in testing for some time. Anyone who has paid for Google Workspace apps will now receive it.
At its I/O developer conference earlier this year, Google unveiled Duet AI, promoting the set of features as a useful coworker in all of the Google apps. Users can instruct Duet to create a chart from the data in a spreadsheet or to convert Google Docs outline into a deck in Slides.
Users can also ask Duet to write an email answer, generate photos, or check grammar. It can be used as a helpful creative tool. Additionally, users may use it to summarize their documents, discover items in Drive, and more.
Duet AI can also refer to a variety of app-specific features. It entails AI-based adjustments to the lighting and audio of meetings in addition to automated meeting summaries in Google Meets. In Chat, it provides automatic summaries of lengthy threads, so users don’t have to read through it all.
Google will charge $30 per person for access to Duet for large organizations. Workspace’s Head Aparna Pappu said that Google hasn’t decided on pricing for smaller teams. The cost of Microsoft’s AI solution, Copilot, which has comparable features and is compatible with the majority of Office products, is the same.
