Google has recently announced the integration of AI features into Google Search, known as Search Generative Experience (SGE). Currently, SGE is only available in three countries: the United States, Japan, and India. In essence, SGE utilizes AI to summarize search results and gradually adds new features, such as the ability to insert images or videos and even allow SGE to ask and answer its own questions.
Most recently, Google introduced an image generator feature for SGE. The usage remains similar to other AI image generators, where users need to input prompts specifying the desired image. However, what sets SGE’s image generation feature apart is that it can be directly accessed within the Google search bar itself. Simply typing “draw an image” followed by the desired image specifications will do the trick.
Another notable feature of SGE is its integration with Google Images Search, similar to Bing Image Creator. When searching for images as usual, Google now includes a “Create something new” section with a “Generate” button, allowing users to create custom images without the need for additional commands or prompts (based on existing image search results).
Google assures users that the generated images adhere to safety policies, ensuring they do not contain offensive or distorted content. Additionally, there will be no watermarking on the images to indicate their AI-generated origins.
Another new feature of SGE, unrelated to images, is the ability to have SGE draft text according to user specifications. The usage is similar to Gmail’s “Help Me Write” or Google Docs, offering an additional avenue for accessing SGE. Once the AI has finished drafting the text, it can be immediately forwarded to Gmail or Google Docs.
In conclusion, Google’s incorporation of AI into its search functionality through SGE brings forth various innovative features, including image generation, integration with Google Images Search, and the ability to draft text. TLDR: Google has introduced SGE, an AI-driven feature in Google Search, offering functionalities like image generation, AI-generated text drafting, and more.
