In an ever-evolving digital landscape, Google continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible with its search engine. The latest Google’s update, harnessing the capabilities of generative AI, promises to revolutionize the way we find and understand information on the web. Here are three exciting features you need to know about:
1. Enhanced Definitions in AI-Generated Responses
Google’s new generative AI update introduces an innovative way to explore definitions and related information within AI-generated responses. When you search for a topic, you can now hover over specific words to preview definitions and even access related diagrams or images. This feature empowers you to dive deeper into the subject matter with just a tap, making learning from search results more informative and engaging.
2. Simplifying Coding Information
For those in the programming world, understanding coding information just got easier. Google’s generative AI, known as SGE, provides AI-generated overviews across various programming languages and tools. Whether you’re looking for answers to coding questions or need suggested code snippets for common tasks, SGE has you covered. This feature simplifies the coding experience, making it more accessible to both beginners and experienced developers.
3. Introducing “SGE while browsing”
Imagine seamlessly navigating through long and complex web pages while effortlessly pinpointing the information you seek. Google is launching an early experiment called “SGE while browsing” in Search Labs to make this a reality. Initially available in the Google app on Android and iOS, with plans to expand to Chrome on desktop, this feature uses generative AI to help you extract key points from articles and web pages. You can tap to view an AI-generated list of the article’s key points, complete with links that lead directly to the relevant sections on the page. Additionally, the “Explore on page” function lets you see questions the article answers, allowing you to jump straight to the section you want to explore further.
“SGE while browsing” is designed to enhance your experience with freely available web content, making it easier to learn and discover valuable insights. Publishers retain control, choosing whether to designate their content as free or paywalled. Google values user and publisher feedback and plans to refine this feature based on input gathered during the experimental phase.
How to Get Started with Google’s update
If you’re already using SGE, you’ll automatically gain access to “SGE while browsing.” If you haven’t opted in yet, you can try it as a standalone experiment in Search Labs. To experience it on desktop, ensure you have the latest version of Chrome and then visit Labs.
This update shows Google’s commitment to enhancing the generative AI experience in Search is evident in these exciting developments. As you explore these new features, remember that your feedback is invaluable. You can sign up and share your thoughts on these experiments through Search Labs in the Google app (available on Android and iOS) or on Chrome desktop.
In a world where information is abundant, Google’s generative AI in Search is your trusted companion for effortlessly accessing and comprehending the knowledge that matters most to you. Embrace these enhancements and embark on a more enriching search experience today.
