Gemini for Google Workspace

Posted by

From its inception, Google Workspace was designed to enhance collaboration among people and teams. With the introduction of Gemini, Google is now powering team collaboration using AI technology. In August 2023, Google announced the roll-out of its Gemini assistant for its Workspace applications – including Gmail, Google Docs, Google Slides, and more.

By leveraging the power of Generative AI, Gemini for Google Workspace enables its users to write, organize, and visualize their work. By powering it with AI capabilities, Google Workspace is now more creative and powerful. 

Here’s a deeper dive into the powerful capabilities of Gemini for Google Workspace. 

1. Write

With this Gemini capability, Gmail users can now draft a professional email on their mobile phone – while on the move.

Similarly, with contextual assistance, users can now save writing time with a contextual response that automatically fills in the mail recipient’s name and other information wherever appropriate.

Besides Gmail, Gemini also helps you write on Google Docs. Here’s a demo of a sales proposal using Google Docs.

2. Visualize

Adding interesting visuals to a presentation slide is a laborious and time-consuming affair – even for experienced presenters. This is no more the case using Gemini in Google Slides.

With a few words, users can now easily generate visual images and add them to their Google Slides presentation. All they need to do is enter a simple text prompt – and Google Slides does the rest of the visualizing work.

What’s more? They can add visuals in a variety of styles including – photographs, illustrations, clipart images, or background images. Here’s a short demo of this capability.


By using Gemini, Google Sheets can now organize and surface available data faster than before. For example, with automated data classification, Google Sheets can understand cell data with more context – and automatically add a label. This reduces time spent on manual data entry. 

The “help me organize” capability in Google Sheets enables this tool to automatically create customized plans for action items, projects, and assigned tasks. Here’s a short demo of the agenda for a one-day executive briefing event.


Gemini technology is also integrated into collaboration tools like Google Meet. Here are the innovative AI-powered capabilities now available in Google Meet:

  • Taking real-time notes from a business meeting.
  • Capturing and showing a mid-meeting summary – whenever you are late for an online meeting.
  • Attending an online meeting on your behalf.
  • Generating an artificial background for the meeting using a range of background images.
