Google Introduces Duet AI for Google Workspace: Your Productivity Assistant

Google Duet AI

Are you drowning in a sea of emails, documents, and spreadsheets? Do you wish you had a personal assistant to help you stay on top of your workload? Well, Google has come to the rescue with its latest offering, Duet AI for Google Workspace.

What is Duet AI?

Duet AI is Google’s answer to Microsoft Copilot, a generative AI assistant that aims to boost your productivity. Unveiled at Google I/O earlier this year, Duet AI is now widely available to users. It is designed to integrate seamlessly with Google’s suite of cloud-based Workspace apps, including Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Meet, and Google Chat.

Your Very Own Assistant

Imagine having your own personal assistant who can pull together information from across all your work repositories in a matter of seconds. Well, that’s exactly what Duet AI can do. It can generate copy, brainstorm new ideas, summarize text, and even create images and charts for your slides. It’s like having a trusted sidekick who can do all the heavy lifting for you.

Not Just for Email and Documents

While Gmail and Docs initially stole the spotlight during the launch of Duet AI, the recent blog post from Google highlights its capabilities in other areas as well. For example, in Google Meet, the video-conferencing app, Duet AI can take real-time notes, identify action items, and capture snippets of video for later reference. And if you’re not in the mood for another meeting, you can simply let Duet AI join on your behalf and even convey your message for you. It’s the perfect excuse to skip that boring conference call!

Privacy Concerns

Now, you might be wondering how Google accomplishes such magic. Well, it’s not without potential ethical concerns. In July, Google quietly updated its privacy policy to mention the use of public information to train its AI chatbot, Bard, and Cloud AI products. This change raised eyebrows and even led to a class action lawsuit accusing Google of using personal information illegally. However, Google reassures Duet AI users that their data will remain safe. According to Google, interactions with Duet AI are private and won’t be used to train its models without user permission.

Try It Out!

Excited to give Duet AI a try? Google is offering a free trial of the service for up to 10 users for a duration of 14 days. Beyond that, pricing details are yet to be revealed, but don’t worry; Google promises to provide more information soon.

So, if you’re ready to take your productivity to the next level and embrace the assistance of AI, give Duet AI for Google Workspace a spin. Let this technology-infused sidekick help you navigate the overwhelming world of emails, documents, and meetings, so you can focus on what really matters – getting things done!
