Google, the global technology giant, has once again showcased its prowess in Artificial Intelligence (AI) with the general availability of Duet AI for Google Workspace. With over 3 billion users under its belt, Google Workspace has established itself as an indispensable productivity tool worldwide. And now, Duet AI seeks to make it even more intelligent and interactive. "Google Workspace makes collaboration seamless and efficient," says Tom Fowler, CTO at CloudSmiths. "With Duet AI, they're taking this to the next level by introducing AI as a real-time collaborator, streamlining tasks and enhancing user experience." 

With a no-cost trial available, now is the time to embark on a new era of collaborative productivity with Duet AI. 

Duet AI: Your Efficient Work Partner

Gone are the days when last-minute work requests meant sleepless nights. With Duet AI, one can easily prompt the AI to create summaries, presentations, and other documents with minimal manual input.

A prime example: Financial analysts, instead of delving into numerous documents and spreadsheets, can simply prompt Duet AI with requests like “create a summary of Q3 performance,” and the AI will present a comprehensive presentation sourced from relevant Drive and Gmail content.

Reimagining Meetings with Duet AI

Let's admit it: meetings can be exhausting. Duet AI aims to transform this ordeal into a more enriching experience.

By integrating Duet AI into Google Meet, users will experience enhanced visual and audio quality. But that's not all; Duet AI will also facilitate automatic translations, catering to international audiences and ensuring everyone is on the same page.

Furthermore, the new "take notes for me" feature captures notes, action points, and even video snippets, offering a consolidated summary post-meeting. And if you miss a meeting? No worries. Duet AI's "attend for me" feature ensures you’re still in the loop.

Staying Connected on the Go

Google Workspace isn't just about meetings; it's also about fostering real-time collaboration and connection. The refreshed user interface in Google Chat makes it easier than ever to connect with your team. At the same time, enhanced search functionalities ensure you can stay on top of conversations and information flow.

The introduction of "huddles" in Chat allows distributed teams to come together in real-time audio gatherings, breaking down geographical barriers and fostering seamless collaboration. Additionally, the integration of Duet AI into Gmail's smart reply feature allows for more personalised, longer responses with a single tap, even while on the move.

Prioritising Data Privacy

As Google Workspace evolves with the introduction of Duet AI, user privacy and data security remain paramount. Google emphasises that interactions with Duet AI are private, with no other users able to access your data. Google's commitment to user privacy remains steadfast, and this commitment extends to the realm of AI collaboration.

Expanding Workspace Ecosystem

Beyond Duet AI, Google is consistently looking to expand its Workspace ecosystem. By partnering with third-party apps and generative AI innovators like Typeface and Jasper, it's ensuring that users have all the tools they need within the Workspace arena. Here is the growing list of trusted technology providers to help users simplify workflows and tap into innovative tools:
