Google Introduces Gemini AI in Gmail and Workspace Platforms

Google has recently introduced Gemini across the web version of Gmail, designed to leverage some of Google’s most capable models, including the Gemini 1.5 Pro model, which offers a longer context window and enhanced reasoning capabilities. Users can now utilize Gemini for tasks such as email summarization, suggesting replies, drafting, and querying about inbox or Google Drive files.

In Gmail’s sidebar, Gemini suggests proactive prompts to users while also allowing for specific queries. For instance, users can ask queries like “How much did the company spend on the last marketing event?” or “When is the next team meeting?” directly in their inbox.

Enhancing Efficiency with Gemini: Features and Limitations

Starting today, similar to the web sidebar, users can also use Gemini in the Gmail mobile app on Android and iOS to analyze email threads and obtain a summarized view of content. While these features appear highly beneficial, they come with some limitations in terms of availability: only Google Workspace users with a paid subscription can access Gemini’s features.

In addition to Gmail integration, Google has added Gemini features as a sidebar in Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Drive platforms for Google Workspace customers. Gemini enhances workflows, making them more efficient and saving time. However, it’s advisable not to rely entirely on Gemini’s outputs for your work, as there may be issues with accuracy. Therefore, verifying the accuracy of outputs is recommended.
