All the new AI features for Gmail, Google Docs, and Slides


Google Workspace is getting a generative AI boost at the same time that many other productivity suites are adding new features that allow users to simplify clerical tasks with just a prompt. Following up on the visual redesign to Google Docs and the announcement of Google Bard, these new AI features are the company's latest attempt to bring more buzzy goodness to its most popular applications. Google announced in a blog on Tuesday, its next frontier of AI support, which will span its Workspace suite, with support for Gmail, Docs, Slides, Sheets, Meet, and Chat. The host of writing-based features will be available first to a set of English-based testers in the U.S. throughout the year and then made public at a later date. Much like other AI generators, users will be able to input their prompt within their Workspace, such as Docs and Gmail and the AI will do the rest. Google uses examples including "a busy HR professional who needs to create customized job descriptions, or a parent drafting the invitation for your child's pirate-themed birthday party."
