Otter.ai has introduced OtterPilot, an extension of its meeting management software. The company advertises the new functions as a “smart AI meeting assistant”: OtterPilot logs video conferences and automatically distributes the result to the call participants.
With its “proprietary AI,” Otter records a transcript of the spoken word in real time, the provider explains in a blog post. At the same time, the program records all the slides shown and displays them in the correct time position in the final log. After the end of the video conference, the tool can also create a meeting summary with the most important topics discussed.
In addition to teams, also for Zoom and Google Meet
OtterPilot works with Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Google Meet. The tool can also evaluate pre-recorded video and audio files after an upload. Depending on the platform and subscription booked, it takes the minutes either via native integration into the conference program or as a browser extension. So far, however, the tool has only been able to handle conversations in English. After all, as the provider claims in the support blog, the tool can also “deal with a large number of accents”, including German and Swiss language accents.
The prices of the virtual note takers depend on the range of functions and the number of possible minutes of the note. The free basic version offers 300 minutes per month and limits individual calls to 30 minutes. The business plan provides 6000 minutes/month and 4 hours per call in addition to extended functions. An Enterprise subscription with single sign-on feature is only available upon request. Recently, Microsoft has also offered very similar professional meeting functions with Teams Premium for a surcharge for its widespread conference tool.
