Google seems excited to catch up with the competition in the new AI race. ChatGPT seems to have disorganized the entire industry, and things didn’t get any better when Microsoft launched its chatbot-enabled Bing. This has caused the search giant to panic and launch similar AI features. The company, known internally as “Code Red,” reportedly sounded the alarm last December, urging all developers to start integrating AI tools into all of its user products by 2023.

OpenAI’s ChatGPT seems to have brought some good competition to the scene as Google’s new artificial intelligence (AI) features. These include new ways to generate, summarize, and brainstorm text with AI in Google Docs (similar to how many people use it), the option to generate full emails in Gmail based on users’ short bullet points, and the ability to use AI to create images. Audio and video to illustrate presentations in slides.

Of all the new features, the artificial intelligence writing and brainstorming tools in Docs and Gmail seem to be the most potentially useful. In an example demo (GIF above), a user sees the prompt “Help me write” and then enters a request: “Job Posting for a Regional Sales Representative.” The AI ​​system then completes the job description for them in seconds and lets them edit and refine the text.

Microsoft is rumored to be building similar features into its suite of Office apps, including Word, Teams, and Outlook. Microsoft famously unsettled Google this year with the launch of the new Bing. Microsoft has scheduled an event where it will detail its plans for “the future of working with AI” later this week, on March 16th.
