Google I/O 2022: These Google Docs, Google Meet updates to make your work EASY
Google I/O 2022: Google has announced several updates to its workspace apps like Google Meet, Google Chat, among others. Check all details here.
Google I/O 2022: Ever since people started working from home, and now with some at office, the use of Google Docs, Google Chat, and Google Meet has increased at a rapid pace. In order to make your work even easier, Google has announced certain updates to its workspace apps like Docs, Meet, among others at Google I/O 2022. "We've been working on finding more ways to use machine learning to fight information overload and keep you feeling productive. Here are seven upcoming features — most made possible by AI — on their way to Google Workspace," Google said in a blog post.
Google introduced automated summarization for Google Docs using which it will automatically parse the words and pull out the main points. "Just as we're using AI to improve features in YouTube, we're building it into our Workspace products to help people be more efficient. Whether you work for a small business or a large institution, chances are you spend a lot of time reading documents. Maybe you've felt that wave of panic when you realize you have a 25-page document to read ahead of a meeting that starts in five minutes. That's why we've introduced automated summarization for Google Docs. Using one of our machine learning models for text summarization, Google Docs will automatically parse the words and pull out the main points," Google said.
Google is also launching summarization for other products in Workspace. It will come to Google Chat in the next few months, providing a helpful digest of chat conversations, so you can jump right into a group chat or look back at the key highlights. Google further announced that it is working to bring transcription and summarization to Google Meet as well so you can catch up on some important meetings you missed.
Talking about Google Meet, it was informed that Meet video calls will now look better with the help of portrait restore and portrait light, which use AI and machine learning to improve quality and lighting on video calls. Later this year the company will be scaling the phishing and malware protections that guard Gmail to Google Docs, Sheets and Slides.
"Portrait restore uses Google AI technology to improve video quality, so even if you're using Google Meet in a dimly lit room using an old webcam — or maybe you've got a bad WiFi connection — your video will be automatically enhanced. We're also introducing portrait light: This feature uses machine learning to simulate studio-quality lighting in your video feed, and you can even adjust the lighting position and brightness," Google said in a blog post.
Live sharing is also coming to Google Meet, meaning users will be able to share controls and interact directly within the meeting, whether it's watching an icebreaker video from YouTube or sharing a playlist.
De-reverberation for Google Meet will filter out echoes in spaces with hard surfaces, giving you conference-room audio quality whether you are in a basement, a kitchen, or a big empty room.
