Meeting summaries: a comparison

Zoom AI Companion’s Meeting Summaries are based on default templates. Only the meeting host and co-host can start or stop the meeting summary through the features in-meeting controls. After the meeting, all participants will receive a default summary of the meeting, generated by the Zoom AI companion, which highlights important topics, and outlines next steps. 

Default, highlight and follow-on summaries can easily be created with Tucan.ai. However, enterprise customers can also access complex user-defined meeting summaries. With Tucan.ai one or more custom instructions can be used to pull out various information depending on the meeting type.

Summaries in keywords or complete sentences, the next to-dos, a mood- or sentiment analysis of the meeting and much more can be queried. Furthermore these things can be prompted only for specific information resulting from the meeting. There are no limits for the user here.
