Google Cloud brings Duet AI to enterprises
Corporate Gmail customers now have access to Google’s Duet AI tools for $30 a month, according to The Wall Street Journal (WSJ).
“Google’s launch on Tuesday puts it ahead of Microsoft in making AI-powered office software easily available for all customers,” wrote WSJ’s Miles Kruppa. Google will also open up availability to its large PaLM 2 model, which supports generative AI features, plus AI technology by Meta Platforms and startup Anthropic, reported Kruppa.
In a blog post, Aparna Pappu, GM and VP for Google Workspace, said the tech giant has made Duet AI for Google Workspace generally available to customers by offering a free trial. Google Workspace has more than 3 billion users and 10 million paid customers.
