He reveals it to us 9TO5Google, which decompiled the popular app for Android, managing to enable some of the new features to come. Let’s discover them together, remembering you also our guide on how to use ChatGPT.

With the “Help me write” command, the AI ​​will write for you, but that’s not all

But that’s not all. Google is also working on a feature called “Improve my message” which will help you improve an already written text. This feature will be accessible via a special keyand once generated you can ask to create another version and give a “vote” to the AI ​​with a thumbs up or down (image below, right).

The concept is to make the message more formal (there will indeed be a button Formalize), Of add it, elaborate it better or even reduce it to a bulleted list.

Google even has announced that there will be a button called “I’m feeling lucky“, to give more freedom to the AI, and also one called “Write a draft” to give you an initial idea, but at the moment 9TO5Google was only able to see the keys “Help me write” e “Improve my message“, so it’s likely that at least in Gmail they’ll be the first to arrive.

E Gmail it won’t be the only app to benefit from this style feature ChatGPT: Google has indeed announced that too Google Docs he will receive them. As regards the timing, the release will not be immediate, as they will reach the first testers during the year, and then probably expand later on.
