This month marks an important milestone in the history of Google, as it turns 25 years old. Every day, the search engine receives billions of search queries, which makes it hard to imagine a day without this search engine.
With time, Google is no longer just a search engine which started in the garage of Susan Wojcicki, the future boss of YouTube. It has expanded far beyond Gmail, Google Drive, Google Calendar, Pixel devices, and other services.
Moreover, Google is all set to enter the AI market with the introduction of Google’s Bard and the recently announced Gemini (a direct competitor to ChatGPT).
With this, today we will be talking about how Google, on its 25th birthday, came up with a new update related to AI. Last year, the company showcased how they were using AI innovations in India for the Search Engine.
This will help to focus on bilingual users’ needs, new search capabilities with your camera, and a new speech recognition model for Hinglish users.
Finally, in May, during its I/O conference, the company introduced Search Labs in the first countries outside the US – India and Japan. By using this feature, it will allow users to understand topics faster, get to know new viewpoints, and get things easily.
Additionally, the official blog post of Google suggested that all Indians will get a hold of a special feature. Users will be able to find a language toggle that will help multilingual speakers switch back and forth between English and Hindi.
Here’s a sneak peek of how the feature will look like:
How do I use this feature?
To enable the Search Labs feature, the user will have to go through the following steps:
- Visit the Google website.
- Locate the Search Labs icons, which will be present on the extreme right side of the screen.
- The user will see a popup talking about SGE generative AI in Search by clicking on it.
- Locate the toggle button next to the button, which reads, ‘When turned on, SGE may appear when you search.’
Other than this, the feature will also help the users with coding queries. This feature has already started rolling out in select devices.
