With its latest update, Google Chrome — the world-class browsing giant from Google — has been instilled with a new and exciting artificial intelligence (AI) feature called "Help me write". 

Backed by the generative AI (GenAI) technology, the feature is only accessible to the Google Chrome user in the US with Mac, Windows, and Linux versions of the app. 

The feature is powered by Goggle's Gemini generative AI tool, which helps you compose content for the purpose of posting or browsing efficiently.

It can be used on any text field — where writing is permissible — on the browser. For instance, if you wish to write feedback regarding a product on Amazon, you can use "Help me write" to mention the key characteristics of that product. 

Google says that  “Help me write” is capable to interpret the content niche (context) of the website you happen to be visiting at the moment, and write relevant content.
