As the popularity of Microsoft’s AI product line continually increases, Google is also trying to up its game and is introducing many new AI-based features for its Workspace products.
Recently, Google announced that Google Sheets will also receive Duet AI feature. Since its launch, the feature has only been added to Google Docs and Google Slides, but now the tech giant is expanding its horizon.
The feature will be visible to users on the right side of the screen and is titled “Help me get organized.”
Aparna Pappu, general manager and vice president of Google Workspace, stated in a blog that “Our new Help Me Organize ability in Sheets automatically creates custom plans for tasks, projects, or any activity you want to track or manage; simply describe what you’re trying to accomplish and Sheets generates a plan to help you get organized” . .
“Whether you’re an events team planning an annual sales conference or a manager coordinating an off-site team, Duet AI helps you create organized plans with tools that get you off to a good start,” he added.
One of the most powerful features of Duet AI is its ability to automatically classify data. This can save users a lot of time and effort as they no longer have to manually categorize their data. Duet AI can classify data based on a variety of factors, including the type of data, the source of the data, and the context of the data.
Duet AI for Google Workspace can now help you stay organized in Google Sheets. Simply describe what you want to achieve and Sheets will generate custom templates to help you get started. Implementing now in #GoogleWorkspace Laboratories → https://t.co/0VPbhLziA0 pic.twitter.com/t7RH9haY8l

What is Duet AI for Google Workspace?
Google Duet AI is a generative AI that was first introduced at Google I/O in 2023. It was created with the vision of helping users create and edit text, images, and code more efficiently.
The Google blog stated: “From the beginning, Google Workspace was built to let you collaborate in real time with others. Now you can collaborate with AI. We’ve been incorporating the power of generative AI into all Workspace apps.
“These features help you write, organize, visualize, speed up workflows, have richer meetings, and much more. This powerful new way of working is what we call Duet AI for Google Workspace,” he added.
Duet AI is based on Google’s PaLM 2 language model, which is one of the most powerful language models in the world. PaLM 2 is trained on a massive data set of text and code, and can understand language context in a similar way to how humans do.
Duet AI is built into the following workspace products:
- Gmail and Gmail mobile
- Google Docs
- Google Slides
- Google meeting
- Google Sheets
How to use Google Duet AI?
Duet AI is currently in testing mode and is only available to beta users. However, Steve Holt, vice president of strategy at Google Workspace, said that it is now available for pre-order and will be available in the coming months. Users must complete a form to do so.
