Digital Marketing Weekly Digest on 7-11 of August 2023
Generative AI Experiences Explosive Growth
Generative AI tools like ChatGPT have experienced rapid adoption, surpassing the adoption rates of smartphones and tablets after their initial release. The research from Emarketer highlights that generative AI reached 77.8 million users in two years since ChatGPT’s launch in November 2022. The rapid adoption rate is attributed to the low barrier of entry, allowing people to access ChatGPT without needing new hardware. Millennials and Gen Z are key demographics driving this surge.
Custom Instructions Feature Widened for ChatGPT Users
OpenAI recently expanded its ChatGPT Custom Instructions feature to most users. However, those in the EU and UK will have to wait a bit longer for access. Introduced in July, these instructions allow users to give specific contexts to ChatGPT, enhancing the AI’s ability to cater to individual preferences. Notably, this feature recently made its debut on the iOS ChatGPT app.
Gmail Enhances User Experience with Mobile Translation
Google is enhancing the user experience of its Gmail mobile app by introducing a translation feature. Previously available for web users, this feature now extends to the mobile app, allowing users to translate emails into over 100 languages. Users will have a dismissible banner, which, when tapped, will translate the email’s content. Android users began receiving this feature from August 8, while iOS users can anticipate its arrival starting August 21.
