Google Enhances Chat With Duet AI For Smarter Communication
Google has unveiled exciting updates for its Chat app, introducing AI-powered features and a sleek redesign. Duet AI, a standout addition, aims to tackle intricate queries by searching through Gmail and Drive messages, offering document summaries, and recapping missed discussions.
The app also boasts a refreshed Material 3 design, featuring a modern color palette, typography, and visual style. Users will now find direct messages and spaces conveniently merged in a unified conversation list, alongside useful shortcuts like a chronological home view, @mentions, and starred conversations.
Additionally, Google has raised the membership cap for spaces from 50,000 to an impressive 500,000 members, promoting more expansive collaboration. The introduction of 'huddles' lets users seamlessly join audio and video conversations within the Chat experience, enhancing real-time team communication. This customer preview feature is expected to roll out by year-end.
