Google’s Duet AI Can now Write Emails For You


Gmail’s new AI companion will be able to help you draft and customize your emails. Google announced as part of this week’s news from its Google Cloud Next ’23 event.

The company had shared a number of updates about its AI-powered companion, Duet AI, which is becoming generally available for Workspace users; aiding them with various tasks across meetings, documents, Google Chat and more. The company also said that Duet AI would enhance Gmail’s existing smart reply feature by allowing users to draft longer, more personalized emails with a tap.

Now, Google has shared more on how that will actually work in an update for Workspace users. On both web and mobile, Gmail users trying Duet AI will gain access to a “Help me write” button that will offer them a variety of options for writing assistance. For instance, Duet AI can now use your own words to draft an email message; as it can understand the context from previous emails in a thread to create replies that are relevant to the current conversation.

You also can use the AI feature to make the tone of your drafted email sound more formal or elaborate on the draft by adding more detail to the message. Alternatively, you can opt to decrease the length of your drafted email if you’re looking for brevity.

In addition, a “Help me write” feature will also come to Docs, Google noted; letting you change the tone of your content, summarize sections, add bullets, elaborate or shorten your text, receive a different generated draft if you didn’t like the first (“retry”) and more. You also can provide your own instructions on how you want your content refined through a custom option, Google said.
