What Tasks Can I Perform with Gemini? 

In addition to building a text from a promptGemini can also help a user with various tasks that can be long and tedious. In this article we'll mention five of them that are a real hand in the wheel.

Writing e-mails

When you open your inbox, do you see that "+99" and, no matter how many emails you answer, you can't get through to everyone? Writing emails can be a time-consuming task and can delay the delivery of important demands. 

But what if there was a way to make it simpler and faster? With Gemini you can. 

Type the following command: "Write a reply to the e-mail below stating that the delivery time for the demand is five working days" and copy and paste the e-mail you received.
Gemini will draft a reply which you can also copy and paste into your email and send. But be aware that Gemini cannot send it for security reasons.

Summarize Content

Content producers need to read several articles and other materials in order to write texts that are technically correct. However, reading articles with hundreds of pages can delay the completion of the task by several hours. 

With Gemini, you can write a prompt where the AI will read the text for you and summarize the content into topics that can be worked on more quickly. Easy and practical.

Thinking in Ideas

Does it seem that some days your head just doesn't work? No matter how hard you try, the ideas just won't come? It happens to everyone, but you need a way out of these creative blocks. 

When using Gemini, you can write commands such as:

  • What sports topics can I write a blog about? 
  • I need to create a course on paid media campaigns. Where should I start? 
  • I have to make a 1-minute video about veganism, what could be the script? 

So AI can help you unlock your ideas, produce something that is original and meets your needs.

Analyzing and Organizing Data

In a market that is data-drivenit is necessary to use data as a way of making decisions. That's why Gemini offers tools that can analyze data and perform operations such as:

  • Demonstrate data in simple language;
  • Summarize insights about the data;
  • Finding patterns and trends; 
  • Point out the highest or lowest values.

Gemini can also organize data into tables that can be used directly in Google Sheets. Simply enter the data and type in the command to organize everything in a table. In the end, Gemini does it for you!

Scheduling Meetings

This feature is at the bottom of the list because it is still in the experimental phase and may require you to make some adjustments before completing the task.

With the help of Gemini, you can create prompts that structure meeting invitations. But remember to make it clear who the participants are, the date, time and agenda. Sometimes there can be mistakes, so take another look before sending the invitation.
