Over the past months since the media frenzy of OpenAI's chatbot tool ChatGPT, Generative AI technology has continued to gain widespread usage, capturing the attention of many in the tech industry.

Several tech companies are now looking to leverage the technology on their existing platforms to improve user experience.

Chat app Discord, which lets its more than 30 million users chat by text, video and voice, has said it will introduce new AI-powered features that can summarise long conversations or add decorations to a user’s avatar, in the latest move among tech companies to build generative AI tools.

Discord says it will revamp its AI-powered bot called Clyde, which will now be powered by OpenAI technology to answer trivia questions, summarize stream of messages, block harmful or unwanted messages in chats, help schedule meetings and recommend playlists among other things.

Similarly, AI writing assistant Grammarly announced in a recent blog post that it will roll out a new “contextually aware assistant powered by generative AI” called GrammarlyGo.

Similar to ChatGPT, the new AI-powered assistant will be able to write from scratch or help revise existing text whether you are writing an email or working on a document. The company says GrammarlyGo will offer a personalised experience by identifying writing styles by letting users set their preferred voice and professional roles.

GrammarlyGo will be initially available in select regions on Grammarly for Windows and Mac, Grammarly for Chrome and the Grammarly Editor sometime in April, a wider rollout is expected in the near future.

Other tech companies including Twitter rival Koo and US car manufacturer General Motors also plan to introduce ChatGPT-like features that'd improve the user experience of their respective products.
