1. Compose a 30-second song | Splash Pro
Input: A few words to describe the kind of song you want.
Get: A short song you can download as an audio or video clip.
Options: Set your song’s character with a brief prompt. Speed it up by raising the BPM — beats per minute. For a darker mood, set the Mode to minor.
Example: Below👇 is a mini song I generated for a video I’m working on.
2. Create an attractive document draft | Craft AI
Input: Type in a sentence summing up the kind of info you’d like to build on.
Get: An elegantly formatted document made up of AI-generated starting notes. No sign-up, subscription or download required because it’s intended to demo how Craft docs look. You can edit the AI-generated doc in Craft (why I like Craft). Go to https://creator.craft.do/ and type in a prompt.
3. Make a quick compelling slide | Beautiful.ai
Input: Type in a phrase or sentence that describes a slide you want to make.
Get: A slide with a quote, chart, or other custom visual you can screenshot. You can use this free on Beautiful.ai’s home page without an account.
Example: wordcloud slide with the names of the planets.
4. Summarize any YouTube video | Summarize.tech
Input: Paste in a YouTube video link.
Get: An instant concise summary. Click “See more” to get a more detailed overview of sub-sections. Shortcut: Summarize any YouTube video by typing http://summarize.tech/ followed by any YouTube video link.
Example: Summary of Biden’s 2022 State of the Union speech.
Alternative: Eightify lets you add a video summary button to Chrome.
5. Dream up a 4-second AI-generated video | Runway.ml
Input: Type in a description of any 4-second visual scene. Or upload any image to turn it into a short video.

7. Clean up background noise on any file | Podcast.adobe.com
Input: Upload any audio file up to 500 mb or 30 minutes long.
Get: A clean version without background noise.
Also: Try Adobe’s separate free Mic Check tool to test whether you’re speaking too far or too close to your computer’s mic, and whether background noise is likely to impact your audio quality for recordings or Zoom calls.
8. Cook up an AI-powered recipe 🎂 | Taste Bud
Input: Type in some ingredients (or leftovers) in your fridge.
Get: A nicely-formatted recipe note card you can save on the site or print. I can’t yet vouch for how tasty the recipes will actually be, but I like the design. :)
