‘Help me write email in Gmail
Gmail is working actively towards the direction of making the user’s work a lot easier. “There are some great instances of how generative AI is helping in evolving the products, which has been initialized with Gmail. In 2017, Google launched Smart Reply, short responses that could select with just one click. Smart Compose was the next best launch that offered writing suggestions once typed. Smart Compose supports advanced writing features which are powered by AI. At the time they are used in Workspace over 180 billion times. With the help of a much more powerful generative model, the next step in Gmail would be “Help me write,” Pichai said.

The airline has sent a voucher, but what you really want is a full refund. One can reply, and make use of ‘Help me write’ to perform the same. All you have to do is simply type what you want, which is an email that asks for a full refund. Click on Create, and a full draft comes into the picture.
However, in case you are not satisfied with the mail and want to refine it further, you can even perform the task with the help of the tool. These tools consist of a button that allows users in refining the mail, with “formalize”, “elaborate,” and “shorten.”
