Generative AI is transforming the world with its potential to revolutionise how humans work and optimise various processes. Tech giants are competing to integrate the technology into their products to make people’s work easier, and the last two weeks witnessed major generative AI feature updates to some of the most popular apps and tools, led by Duet AI launched for Google’s nearly entire suite of apps. We explore everything new announced in the past couple of weeks.
Google Duet AI
Announced at the I/O conference earlier this year, Google’s Duet AI assistant is now generally available. The tool aims to help users with various tasks across Workspace apps. Duet AI can create slides, charts, images, summaries, and more, using natural language commands and Google’s powerful AI models. It’s also a creative partner, offering suggestions and feedback for your work.
However, the tool isn’t free: Google charges $30 per user for this service, which is still in its early stages and may not be perfect. Duet AI is now available for all Workspace users, and it will appear in most of the Google apps you use. With the launch of Duet, Google finally has a product worthy of rivalling Microsoft’s Copilot, which has already been plugged into most of the company’s apps including the Edge browser.
Snapchat is introducing a new feature that lets you create AI selfies with different themes. The feature is called Dreams and it uses generative AI to transform your real-life selfies into various scenarios. You can find Dreams in the Memories section of Snapchat, where you can upload your selfies and choose from eight-photo packs with themes like doppelgangers or back-to-school.
You can make your first pack of Dreams for free, but each additional pack will cost you $1. Dreams is rolling out to Snapchat users in Australia and New Zealand today, and will be available globally in the next few weeks.
Yahoo Mail is getting smarter with new features built on top of Google Cloud’s AI platform. These include Shopping Saver, a tool that helps you save money by finding hidden deals in your inbox and drafting messages to redeem them. You can also search your emails more easily by asking questions or using suggested prompts instead of typing keywords.
Moreover, you can write better emails with the writing assistant that helps you choose the right tone for your message. Finally, you can get a quick overview of your emails with the message summary feature that highlights the important information.
Microsoft Launcher Bing Chat integration
Microsoft Launcher is a popular app that allows Android users to customise their home screen and access various Microsoft services. Now, the beta version of the app has added a new feature: Bing Chat integration.
Bing Chat is an AI-powered chatbot that can answer questions, generate content, and provide information from the web. Users can access Bing Chat from the launcher’s search bar by simply pulling down. They can also choose from three conversational styles: Creative, Balanced, and Precise.
Adobe’s AI-first Express
If you are looking for a fun and easy way to design stunning content, you might want to check out the all-new Adobe Express. It is an AI-first, all-in-one content creation app that lets you use Firefly beta generative AI capabilities to make custom images and text effects from text prompts in over 100 languages. You can also access and edit assets from Photoshop and Illustrator, or add linked files that always stay in sync. The app offers quick actions, templates, design elements, video assets and animations to help you create standout content in minutes.
Amazon AI reviews
Amazon has a new feature to help you shop smarter and faster – AI review summarisation. The feature uses artificial intelligence to create summaries of customer reviews on product pages, displaying the pros and cons in a neat list. You can also tap on keywords to learn more about specific features, such as quality, performance, or values.
Google’s Deepmind has a smart new method to identify AI-generated images
The feature is currently available for some mobile shoppers in the US, and it may be expanded in the future.
