The generative AI tools include the option to automatically generate drafts based on prompts in Docs and Gmail, as well as the ability to auto-generate images, audio and video for presentations in Slides.
The tech giant is also bringing new generative capabilities for business through Google Cloud, as well as a new API for developers.
"We’re now at a pivotal moment in our AI journey," Thomas Kurian, CEO of Google Cloud, said in a blog post. "Breakthroughs in generative AI are fundamentally changing how people interact with technology — and at Google, we’ve been responsibly developing large language models so we can safely bring them to our products."
What AI tools are coming to Workspace?
Google listed a flurry of features coming to its Workspace apps, including Gmail, Docs, Slides and Sheets.
According to the company, here's what you'll be able to do with the tools:
Draft, reply, summarize, and prioritize your Gmail
Brainstorm, proofread, write, and rewrite in Docs
Illustrate presentations with auto-generated images, audio, and video in Slides
Get insights and analysis from raw data via auto-completion, formula generation, and contextual categorization in Sheets
Generate new backgrounds and capture notes in Meet
Enable workflows in Chat
Google said it will embed AI in Docs and Gmail that generates a draft text after you type a few words about the topic you want to write about. You can continue to refine and edit the draft with more AI suggestions.
When will Google launch the features?
Google said it's rolling out the features to "trusted testers" before making the tools broadly available. (The Bard chatbot was also initially available to a group of "trusted testers.")
Google Workspace has more than 3 billion users, according to the search giant.
