Because sometimes making a deck takes too much effort.

That’s what Google is banking on, anyway, with its newest addition to the Workspace family of apps, which includes Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Google Vids was briefly mentioned as an “all-in-one video creation app” in a Google blog post on Tuesday. That blog post is nearly useless when it comes to learning about what Vids actually does, but thankfully outlets like The Verge, we get to see it in action.

What is the ‘Google Vids’ app?

Put simply, Vids is a simple video creation app meant for work purposes. You’re supposed to use it to create slide presentations using a simple left-to-right timeline that you insert things from your Google Drive into. You can also add voiceover or footage of yourself speaking for a little added oomph.

What makes Vids interesting, however, is that it integrates Google’s Gemini AI into the creation suite. Users can (optionally) ask Gemini to write scripts, build storyboards, and even read scripts out loud using text-to-speech. It can also draw from a library of stock footage and even create images itself.

Vids is currently in testing by a small number of Workspace users, with plans to launch a more open beta version in the summer. Be on the lookout for work presentations that look suspiciously AI-generated when that happens.
