How To Use Gemini in Google Docs

The One AI Premium Plan was recently announced by Google as part of its Google One paid plan. As part of this plan, you will have access to Gemini Advanced and you will also be able to use the Gemini AI in other Google applications, including Docs, Gmail, Sheets, and more.

Gemini allows you to write documents, draft emails, and do many other things by using natural language prompts. This guide will show you how to create, edit, and even proofread documents using Gemini in Google Docs.

You must be signed into your Google account with an active Google One AI Premium Plan subscription in order to use Gemini. Google Workspace users can also access these features.

Gemini makes it extremely easy to create and edit documents in Google Docs. To make your documents better, you can not only create new ones, but also edit the existing ones.
