Google is now starting to open up access to new generative AI capabilities in Search.
Those who have already signed up for the waitlist will be notified by email when they can start testing Search Labs experiments such as SGE (Search Generative Experience), Code Tips and Add to Sheets in the US.
The new generative AI-powered Google Search experience is designed to take some of the work out of searching.
This will enable users to understand the topic they’re searching for faster, uncover new viewpoints and insights and get things done more easily.
“Instead of asking a series of questions and piecing together that information yourself, Search now can do some of that heavy lifting for you,” the company explained in a blog post.
The new generative AI capabilities in Search will help users get up to speed on new or complicated topics, find quick tips for specific questions and discover a range of products and things to consider while shopping.
“If you want to explore further, right under the snapshot, you’ll see the option to ask a follow-up question’ or select a suggested next step, which will take you into conversational mode,” noted Google.
The company said that if those who want to opt-in to these experiments can simply tap the Labs icon in the latest version of the Google app (Android and iOS) or on Chrome desktop to sign up.
After signing up, users can also visit the Labs site to check their waitlist status.
