Google’s experimental project, Search Generative Experience (SGE), has launched new capabilities driven by generative artificial intelligence (AI) in searches. Users can now generate images using prompts, similar to the integration of Dall-e 3 into Bing, along with the ability to generate personalized draft texts.
With the capacity to generate images through indicators, users can now easily find specific images or capture visual ideas when they need inspiration. By simply using prompts like “draw” or “sketch” in the Google search field, users can obtain up to four images and get detailed descriptions of each. They can also make changes to these images as needed.
Google Images also offers the option to press “Generate something new,” resulting in four images generated by AI. Users can edit the descriptions to obtain more precise images. They can save the detailed descriptions to Google Drive or export them for use in other tools if required. However, Google emphasizes responsible use and blocks the creation of images that violate their policy on generative AI use, such as harmful or misleading content. All generated images will include metadata tags and embedded watermarks indicating that they were created by artificial intelligence.
This capability is available to users who are 18 years or older, participate in SGE, have their account set up in English, and are located in the United States.
Additionally, users can now create draft texts using generative AI. They can set the tone and amplitude and export the content to other applications when needed. For example, if someone is researching home improvement projects, they can ask SGE to “Write a note to a contractor asking for a quote to turn my garage into a home office.”
Both these features are currently experimental, and Google has solicited user feedback to determine their future. By enabling users to harness the power of generative AI, Google aims to provide a wide range of creative possibilities while ensuring responsible usage.
