Just as when we are little and we have a question we turn to our parents or elders to solve it for us, over the years we have started to ask Google our questions for the simple fact that it has an answer to everything, regardless of the location. issue.
And Google is the most used search engine in the world, it has had a dominant position for more than 20 years, and despite the attempts of the rest of the browsers that try to compete with it, for now It seems very far away that someone can dethrone him.
But the company is aware that this dominant position must be taken care of, and even though it is the default browser on the vast majority of devices in the world, it knows that it has to work to update itself and offer the best possible functions and tools to improve the user experience.
And as it could not be otherwise, in recent years and months, Google has been introducing different functions powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI), the most notable being Google Lens, an app that uses the camera to identify and recognize images and offer results and information about what is shown.
But with the rise of this technology, more AI tools were necessary, and for example, they also included new AI functions within Gmail to improve the overall management and use of their email service. And now, the company has announced the arrival of two new search tools powered by AI, that will help give much more accurate results in a simpler way.
Round to search
With this new tool, users will be able to select an image, text or video, make a circle with your finger and without leaving the app they were in they will be able to perform a search and find the information they needed.
This way they do not have to leave the platform, enter Google and perform the search, streamlining the process enormously. Unfortunately, and at least for now, this news will arrive on January 31, but first only in Pixel 8 phones and the new Samsung Galaxy S24.
Point, ask and you will receive your answer
AI-powered assistants like Siri or Alexa have been with us for several years, and although Google had its own, it was more limited than the others. Now, thanks to the arrival of Bard and the advances of this technology, the user will be able to open Google Lens, take a photo of an object, sign or whatever they want, and the search engine Not only will it give you several related results, but it will summarize and explain what you want to know.
For example, if you upload a photo of a board game that you don’t know how to play, the AI will collect all the information it can and explain to you step by step how to play, without you having to choose a specific article or website. For now, this function will arrive in the coming weeks first in the US, We don’t know when it will arrive in Spain.
