notion confirmed the launch of its artificial intelligence capable of automating tasks and writing notes like ChatGPT. After several weeks of testing, the company announced that Notion AI will be available to everyone starting today. This means that if you are a user of the popular application you will have access to the AI without having to pay the monthly fee or sign up for a private beta.
According to its creators, Notion AI can help people improve writing and approach projects with greater creativity. The AI is integrated into the software, so it is enough to invoke it to help you with your tasks. For example, if you have written a paragraph, just highlight it and click on “Ask the AI” in the toolbar and select “Improve Writing”.
If you are a lover of productivity, but have a mess in your notes, Notion AI is able to generate an instant summary. Just press the space bar on the keyboard when starting a new line and select “Summarize”. artificial intelligence can identify the most important elements and generate tables for better understanding.
The app also has an option to start writing with the help of AI, where it will help us with recommendations to generate the text according to the type of content (blog post, job description, sales email, etc.). Notion AI offers the ability to make text longer, use simple language, or change the tone. The latter is important, since you can generate a professional, direct, friendly or casual document, depending on the target audience.
Notion AI and its difference with ChatGPT
Since its announcement, some thought that Notion AI would get on the bandwagon of generative AI. Although ChatGPT had not exploded to become the monster that it is now, Sudowrite already gave something to talk about. The GPT-3-based app allowed the creation of complete texts, such as chapters in a science fiction book, so it was time to integrate it into a productivity app.
After 10 weeks of testing, Notion AI engineers discovered that users were not looking for a replacement for ChatGPT to write publications or press releases. According to a blog postthe main way in which people interacted was highlighting the text and asking the AI for help.
This suggests that most people start out by writing their own content and treat AI as an intellectual partner and publisher. “Enhance Typing” works like one-click photo editing, but for your words.
According to its creators, Notion AI becomes more useful when integrated into an already started workspace. While it is available in the notes and docs, the company plans to extend its functionality to other features of the app.
Notion AI is available starting today. Although you do not require paid membership to access it, the AI is limited to 20 free responses per member. Once that limit is exceeded, the system will display a warning that a subscription is required to access it.
