The AI assistant in Adobe Acrobat

Adobe’s AI assistant will reduce time-consuming and work-intensive tasks related to breaking down massive text documents. This could look like students quickly finding information for research projects or office workers summarising large reports into snappy highlights for e-mails, meetings and presentations.

Users don’t simply type their requests of the AI, with Adobe’s new conversational engine, they can talk to the assistant too! This redefines how users interact with documents. By simply chatting with the assistant, users can extract data, summaries and insights effortlessly. The AI Assistant in Acrobat not only streamlines document workflows but also sets a new standard for interactive and intelligent document handling in the digital age.

What can the assistant do?

Adobe's generative AI assistant introduces a suite of features designed to revolutionise how we interact with digital documents, making it an essential tool for professionals, educators and anyone looking to enhance their productivity.

Ask questions, get answers fast: Say goodbye to the old days of manual search. Adobe’s AI assistant dives into the document details, offering up answers and savvy suggestions straight from the text.

Get accurate summaries: Short on time for those long reads? The AI assistant has got you covered with brief, easy-to-digest summaries, helping you catch the essential bits in no time.

Need trustworthy citations? No problem: Lean on automatically generated citations for that extra layer of credibility. Adobe’s unique attribution engine backs up the AI assistant’s responses, so you know you're getting reliable info.

Seamless document surfing: Jump to the info you need without the hunt. Summaries come with handy clickable links, making it a breeze to navigate to important sections directly.

Sharing made simple: Beyond just understanding, the AI assistant preps your key insights and text for e-mails, reports and presentations, streamlining how you share knowledge without the extra legwork.

Beyond its impressive capabilities with PDFs, Adobe's AI assistant stands out for its support of multiple document formats, including Word, PowerPoint and meeting transcripts. This versatility ensures wide applicability across different professional and academic fields, making it a versatile tool in any digital workflow.

What Adobe’s AI can do that others can’t

In contrast to other generative AIs like OpenAI's ChatGPT, which need you to upload documents before getting to work, Adobe's generative AI fits right into its products like a glove. This means you can dive straight into your documents within Adobe's ecosystem, skipping the hassle of formatting, cutting and uploading. It's all about making things smoother and friendlier for you.

Beyond simple PDF management

Picture this: you extract the main points from a lengthy Word document, boil down a dense PowerPoint, or cruise through meeting minutes with ease, regardless of the file type. Adobe’s flexibility turns it into a go-to resource in all kinds of work and study settings, turbocharging your ability to sift through and make sense of information from different places swiftly. Adobe may be synonymous with the PDF, but its AI assistant can work across varied document formats.

Real world applications

With Adobe’s AI assistant, you are getting a supercharged office assistant that can dig through multiple documents in a flash, highlight what matters, and even make your work look good while at it. With document sharing in Adobe Acrobat shooting up by 75% over the last year, it's clear that people everywhere are craving better ways to collaborate digitally. Adobe's mission is to make AI a natural part of this, helping to sift through feedback, offer edits and smooth over any bumps in the collaboration road.

What about security?

Adobe brings its enterprise grade security to its entire suite of products. The company is doubling down on its pledge to keep user data safe, especially in the age of AI. A prime example of this is a document setting that ensures your content cannot be used for AI training without your explicit consent. This careful balance between innovation and ethics reinforces Adobe's position as a leader in digital document technology, encouraging users to embrace generative AI capabilities with confidence, knowing their information remains secure and private.


Adobe’s AI assistant is not just tweaking the edges, but reimagining our way of working. The future of document management isn't just about reading and editing; it's about engaging with content in smarter, more efficient ways. It’s now so easy to sift through piles of PDFs, Word docs and PowerPoints to extract smart, AI-driven insights and summaries.

We should also not overlook the peace of mind Adobe's commitment to top-tier security and ethical AI use brings to the table. Whether you are a project manager drowning in reports, a student buried in research, or a marketing manager preparing the next big pitch, Adobe’s AI assistant is poised to revolutionize how you interact with documents.
