Your AI CoPilot for doc collaboration.

Iterate seamlessly on top of Google Documents to revise, edit, and improve your work.

→  Built into the native comments workflow, where you already collaborate.

→  No apps or extensions to install.

→  Our servers never log your content, and you can unshare the copilot any time.

 Just share with to get going!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started?

Just share your Google Doc* with our Copilot like you would with any other email address.

Within about 10 seconds, you should see Copilot join the Google Doc and begin to add comments and replies.

If you have something in particular you want to ask our Copilot, just add a comment. If you want elaboration on a suggestion, add a reply. Copilot will watch your Google Doc and respond with thoughtful and focused in-line edits.

As long as you keep the dialogue going, the Copilot will stick around and respond to any comments or replies you leave. If you need to take a break for more than 30 minutes or so, no worries! The Copilot will politely exit the document and unshare itself. Whenever you're ready to collaborate again, simply re-share the file, and the Copilot will happily rejoin you for another jam session.

* at this time you'll need to share with 'edit' access, and make sure to check 'notify people' checkbox.

👋  Behind the scenes

Thank you for checking out our Document Copilot! There are two product observations about the State of AI that motivated this project:

1. Piecemeal Content Iteration
Using LLMs like OpenAI/Bard/Anthropic is a neat and new way to take your written content and receive generative AI suggestions for improvement. The UX of these experiences, however, leaves much to be desired. Today there are tens of millions of users who are copy-and-pasting their emails, resumes, essays, and recipes back and forth between their browser and their document editor. Oof!

More than just losing formatting and being an annoying loop of ctrl+c/ctrl-v, the real limitation of this pattern is in the way LLMs tend to wholesale rewrite the content they are prompted with. A good editor would (usually) not start your essay over from scratch, but that is often exactly what the LLM will do. Trying to get them to iterate piecemeal over a growing body of text is near impossible.

2. Low-friction Discovery
For many of us, the ‘onboarding’ of new AI experiences is also still too much of a headache. New passwords, new accounts, new interfaces and workflow patterns. New install requirements, or subscriptions to forget about. In many ways our software products have never been more interesting, but our distribution methods have certainly not kept up!

What we envision

We believe the right near-term paradigm for AI agents is one where they plug into your existing context and workflows, and collaborate with you iteratively and interactively the way a trusted colleague might.

That’s why you don’t sign up for our Copilot. While we have a marketing site, our Copilot doesn’t live on a webpage or have its own App. Our Copilot is simply an AI with a Google account.
So go ahead and start using it, you already know how!

⚙️  How does it work?

We combine the latest LLM technologies with good old fashioned headless browsers to engage with your Google Doc exactly the way a person might. Our Copilot is a very early and simple demonstration of an exciting world that is just now becoming possible — if there is any major traction we’ll probably have some outages and other fires to attend to. Bear with us!
