Google introduces AI to Gmail that can help you to write emails

Google is introducing a new AI feature called Gemini in its apps, starting with a side panel in Gmail that helps you write and summarize emails. This comes after Google announced the change at its I/O developer conference, which highlighted new AI advancements.

In Gmail, Gemini can assist with drafting emails, suggesting responses, and retrieving specific information from emails and Google Drive files. Users can ask questions like “What was the PO number for my agency?” or “How much did the company spend on the last marketing event?”. However, these features are exclusive to Google Workspace customers with specific add-ons or a Google One AI Premium subscription.

Gemini is also being incorporated into other Google Workspace apps. In Docs, it aids in writing, refining content, summarizing information, and brainstorming ideas. It can even create content based on existing files. In Slides, Gemini generates new slides, custom images, and summarizations. In Sheets, it helps track and organize data, create tables, generate formulas, and accomplish tasks. In Drive, the panel can summarize documents and provide project details.

As with Gmail, access to Gemini features in Docs, Slides, Sheets, and Drive requires a subscription.

Google joins other tech giants like Meta and Apple, which are also integrating generative AI into their apps and services. Meta added an AI chatbot to Instagram and WhatsApp, while Apple plans to introduce AI features to Siri, Messages, Mail, and Notes. This trend may not be universally welcomed as more users find AI increasingly interlaced with their daily apps.
