Otter, the automatic transcription service, has introduced a new AI-powered chatbot called Otter AI Chat, designed to enhance collaboration and information sharing during and after meetings.

Here’s some good news: unlike other bots that focus on one-on-one conversations, Otter’s chatbot can provide answers to multiple people to facilitate team collaboration. The chatbot allows participants to ask questions related to ongoing or concluded meetings, aiding in catching up on missed content or generating follow-up emails with action points. 

Zoom, on the other hand, also released the same feature a few months back, but this development follows Otter’s earlier launch of the OtterPilot bot, which automatically sent meeting summaries to participants, complete with important slide images. 

Although Otter stated that it transcribes more than one million spoken words per minute, it did not provide any specific information regarding whether the training data for Otter AI Chat was derived from that source.

If you’re interested in trying out Otter AI Chat and leveraging its benefits during meetings, here’s a guide on how you can get started. Before that, make sure you’ve signed up to try Otter AI for free here.
