What Is Gemini for Google Workspace?

Editor's Note: Google announced on February 8, 2024 that Duet AI and Bard will be moved under the Gemini product umbrella. This blog has been updated to reflect the new branding. 

No matter what industry you’re in, you’ve probably heard all the recent buzz around generative artificial intelligence (AI). With over 100 million users on ChatGPT alone, it’s a hard topic to avoid. In fact, you may have already tried one of the many tools on the market to draft some emails or generate humorous images. 

Generative AI — also known as “gen AI” — has many different use cases, but it’s proving particularly beneficial in the workplace. Current research shows the technology has the potential to increase US labor productivity by 0.5% to 0.9% annually through 2030.  

Being something of a champion for collaboration and productivity themselves, Google has recently thrown its hat in the generative AI ring with Gemini for Google Workspace (formerly Duet AI). This exciting tool promises to revolutionize how teams work together and achieve their operational goals

 

Understanding Gemini for Google Workspace

Gemini is a groundbreaking advancement that brings artificial intelligence into the heart of Google Workspace. It seamlessly integrates with applications like Drive, Gmail, and more to enhance the user experience, offer intelligent suggestions, and augment the way teams collaborate and perform tasks.

Key Features & Benefits of Gemini for Google Workspace

1. Smart Writing Suggestions

Gemini actively assists users by offering contextually relevant suggestions as they work within Google Workspace apps like Gmail, Docs, and Drive. 

Now writer’s block is a thing of the past; simply start typing a  prompt into the Gemini window, and the Google Workspace application will instantly generate a first draft for you. From there, you can edit and optimize as you please. 

You can also use Gemini for Google Workspace to easily add smart chips for information like location, status, and custom variables. 

2. Effective Data Management 

Gemini doesn’t just help you write Google Docs; it also helps you create better Google Sheets.

Simply describe what you’re trying to accomplish, and Sheets will automatically generate a table to track any activity. It can also automatically classify your data for you, freeing you up to focus on more important work. 

Whether you're a product development team analyzing user feedback or an HR recruiter summarizing input from interviews, this tool makes it easy to develop a clear and visually engaging analysis.

3. Text-to-Image Visualization

Trying to identify the perfect image or design a professional-looking graphic for your next Google Slides presentation? Gemini for Google Workspace can help with that too. 

Just plug a short prompt into the tool, and it’ll generate stunning graphics and photos of things that have never existed before. In turn, you no longer need to worry about the time-consuming, often-expensive design process.  

4. Video Enhancements 

In today’s hybrid work environment, you need a reliable communication platform to host voice and video calls between teammates and external partners. 

Gemini automatically improves audio quality issues such as poor microphones, noisy environments, or poor network connectivity. It also enhances image quality in low light, low quality webcams, and in some poor network scenarios, so you always look and sound your best. 

If you work with international teams, Gemini for Google Workspace Enterprise also generates translated captions in real-time, making video calls more inclusive and collaborative by removing language proficiency barriers. 

 

Unlocking Gemini's Potential: Use Cases

Curious how you can put these features to work for your organization? Here are just a few use cases for Gemini for Google Workspace. 

Gemini for Sales & Marketing Organizations  

From emails to pitch decks, sales representatives are tasked with generating a lot of content for prospects and customers. 

By using Gemini to help you draft your external communications, you can get a jumpstart on outreach while staying true to brand voice and industry best practices.  

Gemini for Retailers      

Inventory management is crucial for both ecommerce and brick and mortar stores. Use Gemini to create tables that track incoming and outgoing merchandise, so you can focus on other areas of your business. 

Gemini for Manufacturers 

Manufacturing is a complex industry, making it hard to find photos and graphics for your website and other marketing materials that accurately represent your business. Chances are, you’ll have to invest in custom designs or task employees with submitting their own images — and even then, the images might not be up to par.  

Try using Gemini to generate compelling images for your pitch decks, customer proposals, and other externally-shared materials. You can even use the tool to help you write internal training documents for critical manufacturing processes.
