2. Tabnine: Helps you write code

Some of you might remember Github Copilot, quite a good tool while it was still free. Now I've found an alternative, Tabnine.

Tabnine is a tool really similar to Github Copilot. Basically, you install it to your IDE, then Tabnine will give you suggestions and autocompletion for your code.

3. Notion: Free AI writing assistant

Notion is a free AI writing assistant, giving you writing advice, and even helping you write parts of your writing for you.

Notion is still in Alpha, so you will need to sign up for the waitlist, and wait a while before getting access to it.

4. Fireflies: AI meeting assistant

Fireflies will help you take notes during your meetings, and will also analyze voice conversations for free.

Fireflies is also quite popular and trusted by over 60000 companies, and can be used personally too.

7. Lalal

Lalal allows you to remove parts of a song, like vocals. You can use it to customize your own musics personally, or use it for commercial purposes. Again, it's completely free.

Lalal can also remove a specific instrument from a song, and they promised to do it all without harming the original quality of the song.

Final Thoughts

I tried my best to not include common AI tools that everyone knows, like ChatGPT. Because it's not providing you any value if I tell you what you already know.

I hope you enjoyed this post, and please leave a comment down below if you have any additional AI tools to add, or have a comment to make.

TabNine is great - and it's been around considerably longer than CoPilot
