At this point, the AI Assistant will begin generating your content. If you see information in the output that is incorrect or not exactly as you wanted, you can click Stop in the prompt bar to choose from several options:

  • Try Again: This option in the block toolbar menu removes the AI-generated content but retains your prompt, allowing you to refine the instructions in your initial prompt.
  • Send: This option on the prompt input bar restarts the prompt from the beginning.
  • Accept: This option on the prompt input bar completes the prompt at the point you stopped.

After the AI Assistant completes the prompt and you accept it, the AI Assistant prompt and input field are removed. You are left with the resulting blocks that you can edit as needed.

Customizing Content

After the AI Assistant completes the prompt and displays the content, there are several options to further customize the generated content:

  • Change Tone: This option allows you to apply one of 10 different tones to your content. Once you select a tone, the AI Assistant will rewrite the content in your chosen tone. You can repeat this process until you’re satisfied with the tone of your content.
  • Translate: This option enables you to translate your content into one of 12 languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, Hindi, and Korean. After selecting your preferred language, the AI Assistant rewrites the content in your chosen tone and language.
  • Improve: This option lets you alter the content by summarizing it or extending the AI-generated text to make it shorter or longer as desired.

Modifying Existing Content

The AI Extension feature enhances the functionality of core blocks such as Paragraphs, Headings, and Lists by adding a new AI Assistant button to the block toolbar. This button enables you to leverage the power of AI to modify and improve the content of these blocks.

With the AI Extension feature, you can easily transform the text within Paragraph, Heading, and List blocks using AI-generated suggestions. This allows you to easily and efficiently enhance the quality, clarity, and effectiveness of your content.

  2. Click on the AI Assistant button that appears on the block toolbar.
  3. Choose from the available options. You can provide a prompt describing the changes you want, correct spelling and grammar, simplify, summarize, expand, translate, or change the tone of the text, the same as when you use the Assistant to generate fresh content from scratch.
  4. The AI Assistant will regenerate and modify the content of the selected block based on the option you’ve chosen in Step 3.
  5. Once you are satisfied with the modifications, you may accept the changes.

The AI Extension feature empowers you to effortlessly enhance your existing content created with core blocks, ensuring that your message resonates with your audience effectively.

Privacy Information

This feature is activated by default. You can deactivate it by turning off Jetpack Blocks.

Data Used
Site Owners / Users

This feature requires the usage of the following information and data: site ID, post ID, and the full prompt received from the block, which includes what the user typed in the block and also the current content from the post, including the title.

When a user sends a request or clicks one of the options in the toolbar (Summarize, Simplify, Post about…, and so on), the option is tracked, along with its type (suggestion or prompt template).
Site Visitors

No visitor data is used or tracked by this feature, as it is only available in the block editor. The AI Assistant block is not rendered on the site’s frontend by itself.

Only the content generated is shown using paragraphs, lists, and tables, which don’t track any data.
Activity Tracked
Site Owners / Users

We track when and by which user the feature is used. We also track when and which configuration settings are modified (and by which user).

On our end, we keep track of every prompt execution (any action that the user performs on the block). This tracking includes the site type, the site ID, the post ID, and the full prompt received from the block.
Site Visitors

No activity is tracked for site visitors as the feature is only operative in the block editor and not on the frontend of the site.
