AI has changed the world in recent months. Technology has been gradually improving for decades, but now Artificial Intelligence is firmly in the public eye — and it seems every company wants a slice of the pie.
Consumers today are spoiled for choice when deciding which quirky AI tool they’d like to leverage. We’ve seen ingenious features, such as Photoshop’s Generative Expand tool. We’ve witnessed cute timewasters, such as Pamera, which turns images into whimsical poems. We’ve even seen the downright weird — such as EmbodyMe’s Expression Chat, a tool that allows you to have an AI conversation with anyone, alive or dead.
Now, a new challenger is entering the AI race. Yahoo just released an AI tool that could help you save money. The company announced their “Shopping Saver” feature last week. It promises to track all unused gift cards, credits, and vouchers in your email inbox. If there’s a coupon you’ve forgotten about, the AI will find it.
Yahoo has also unveiled several other exciting AI features that are worth your time. A new email writing assistant helps you convey the right tone and choose the correct words depending on the context of your email. Yahoo’s automated message summariser provides brief overviews of emails in seconds.
I’m glad Yahoo has taken the time to create some actually useful AI functionalities. They may be a late starter in the AI race, but the chance to save some money means it was well worth the wait. Try the Shopping Saver as part of Yahoo Mail’s AI beta experience today.
