While AI can open new and exciting possibilities, we also recognize the need to introduce this technology in a responsible way. That’s why we’re building safeguards into this experience and blocking the creation of images that run counter to our prohibited use policy for generative AI, including harmful or misleading content. And every image generated through SGE will have metadata labeling and embedded watermarking to indicate that it was created by AI. The image generation capability is only available in English in the United States, to people who opted into the SGE experiment and who are 18 years or older.
We also have an upcoming tool called About this image that will help people easily assess the context and credibility of images. For example, it might show you when a similar version of this image may have first been seen by Google; or show you other pages on the web that use a similar image, including news or fact checking sites.
Search for inspiration with SGE
Sometimes when you’re researching a project or topic in Search, you end up looking for writing ideas and inspiration along the way. To help with these longer-running searches, we’re introducing written drafts in SGE. You’ll be able to make the draft shorter, or change the tone to be more casual.
For example, perhaps you’re looking into home improvement projects, like how to convert your garage into a home office. After finding helpful ideas across the web and contractors you’d like to get in touch with, you can ask SGE to “Write a note to a contractor asking for a quote to turn my garage into a home office.”
From there, it’s easy to export your draft to Google Docs or Gmail when you’re ready to add that personal touch. And rest assured that Google Workspace privacy protections carry over into this export functionality.
This new capability will allow you to get even more help as you search and will begin rolling out today to those opted into the SGE experiment in English in the U.S.
