Google Announced ‘Duet AI’ for Gmail, Docs, Drive, and Slides

IBL News | San Francisco

Google Cloud announced Duet AI — its collection of generative AI features for text summarization, code writing, and data organization — yesterday at its annual Cloud Next conference in San Francisco.

Google said that Duet AI will be rolled out across all of its Workspace apps, including Gmail, Drive, Slides, and Docs, at $30 per user.

Duet AI, which directly challenges Microsoft, can turn Google Docs outline into a deck in Slides or have it make a chart out of the data in a spreadsheet.

One of the biggest features of Duet AI will be the ability to take notes in real-time and later summarize them in Meet. In addition, during a call, the user will be able to talk privately with a Google chatbot to go over missed details.

Another new Meet feature lets Duet “attend” a meeting on your behalf. With this “attend for me” functionality, Google will auto-generate some text about what the user might want to discuss. This note-taking feature will come to Google’s Workspace Labs in the coming months.
