The world is witnessing a rapid transformation with the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) revolution. From businesses to industries, AI is transforming the way we live, work, and interact.

Google also uses AI to improve the user experience, make its products more efficient, and develop new technologies.

Smart Reply, a feature by Gmail in 2017, introduced short response suggestions that could be selected with a single click. Smart Compose was then launched which provided writing suggestions in real-time while typing.

Google claims that the AI-powered writing features available in Google Workspace have been utilized more than 180 billion times over the past year.

And now, Google has improved its generative model, leading to the development of the "Help me write" feature, which is set to roll out soon as a part of Workspace updates for Gmail.

One of the early announcements made during the Google I/O event was a new feature for Gmail aimed at assisting users in writing emails.

The new feature for Gmail, called "Help Me Write", which uses AI to assist users in composing emails. The Help Me Write tool expands on the existing auto-replies and generative text functionality available in Gmail.

The feature uses past exchanges with a contact to generate a message, as demonstrated by CEO Sundar Pichai when he used the example of requesting a refund from an airline.

The users can type what they want in the prompt. The following screenshot shows how to ask the 'Help Me Write" to compose an Email draft.
