During the recent annual I/O conference, Google unveiled advanced generative AI Capabilities that are now accessible through Search Labs. 

This is an innovative platform that allows users to explore and engage with early-stage experiments in Search. 

“Experimentation is part of our DNA. That's why we're introducing Search Labs, a new way for users to sign up to test bold new products and ideas we're exploring,” Google said. 

“Users will be able to try out some early-stage experiments and share their feedback directly with the teams working on them. Search Labs will introduce new, fun, and creative ways to engage with Search and explore information.”

Below are some of the numerous experiments that are being released by Google, aimed to continue upholding the quality of its search engine. 

Search Generated Experience (SGE), powered by AI, is a new search experience that seeks to help one quickly find and make sense of information. 

“The heavy lifting task of breaking down a question and swimming through vast information can now be a thing of the past all thanks to the generative AI,” Google said. 

This time-limited trial takes more of the work out of searching by providing snapshots of vital information and links for a deeper and faster understanding of a topic.

“Context will be carried over from question to question, to help users more naturally continue with their exploration. You’ll also find helpful jumping-off points to web content and a range of perspectives that you can dig into,” Google added. 

This aims to provide users with a range of insights, perspectives, and viewpoints for easy understanding.

Code tips that harness the power of large language models seek to provide users with pointers for writing code faster and easier. 

According to Google, users can ask how-to-questions related to a specific set of programming languages such as C, C++, Go, Java, JavaScript, Kotlin, Python, and TypeScript, tools such as Docker, Git, shells as well as algorithms.

Through Add to Sheets, Search has added a companion that permits users to add a search result directly into spreadsheets and share it with friends for track keeping, research, and planning.

“It’s your perfect research companion for planning a trip and adding info to your itinerary, or keeping track of other information you’ve found on Search.” Google said. 

Search labs are currently open with access to SGE beginning in the coming weeks.

Through the Google app or Chrome Desktop, users can tap on the Labs icon to express interest by joining the waitlist.
