In the transfiguring world of technology, Google never stops astounding us. In a recent blog post, Google elaborated on an array of enhancements coming to its Search Generative Experience (SGE), an AI-powered avatar of its renowned Search system.

The improvements are designed to enrich the SGE’s ability to render results amalgamated with videos and images, thereby propelling the user experience to another level.

Anyone who has had the privilege to sign up for Google SGE will witness a much more integrated search environment. Say you wish to learn a specific Yoga pose, Google’s SGE wouldn’t just provide a textual description fetched from the web, it would empower your learning experience by linking videos sourced from YouTube.

Google’s SGE offers the convenience of accessing the sources it uses to draw information. By listing these sources on the side, it facilitates researchers and other users to visit the linked websites for deeper insights. Google is further enhancing this feature through the inclusion of website publish dates on the linked websites, enabling users to identify the most current information.

To help you better understand how recent the information is from these web pages, we recently added publish dates to each link. And we’re continuing to experiment with new, easier ways for people to find web pages that support information in AI overviews, the company said.

The development follows the rush among technology giants to integrate AI into their operational ecosystems. Late last year, OpenAI introduced ChatGPT, an AI-based chatbot capable of responding to any question with a human-like demeanor. Such technology has sparked an upsurge in the investment and development of AI-powered products. Microsoft, for instance, escalated its investment in OpenAI, integrating AI results directly into Bing.
