What Is the AI Assistant?

The Taskade AI Assistant is a versatile tool that will help you write, edit, and proofread all kinds of documents in the project editor. You can also use the Assistant to brainstorm ideas, organize and prioritize tasks, and summarize long-form content, all using convenient /AI commands.

💡 Note: The AI Assistant is only one of the ways we use artificial intelligence at Taskade. Check Taskade AI (iOS & Android), AI Project Studio, and AI Chat next.
