Google, the world’s largest search engine, is now penetrating towards the territory of Artificial Intelligence, with its various new features. Google’s Gemini, an artificial intelligence chatbot designed to stimulate human conversations using natural language processes and machine learning, was launched in December of 2023. Since then, the company has been working tirelessly to go beyond and launch an integrated feature within the Search Engine that will make Google more user friendly, accessible and less time consuming.


Google’s AI overview, launched in May, 2024, seeks to make AI helpful for everyone.

What is Google’s AI Overview?

Launched to integrate AI generated answers along with the traditional web searches, Google’s all new AI feature focuses on producing fast and intelligent search results, taking help from human sources, websites and blogs.

Google, launched in 1998, aims at providing quick results within seconds, even to the most bizarre questions. It provides people with a plethora of sources and websites to choose from. Taking this vision, their new feature is set to provide original results to the people, giving options to ‘simplify the content’ or ‘break it down’, step by step.

Google’s Gemini, an updated version of their first AI model Bard, provides personalised answers to questions while providing links for further assistance, similar to OpenAI’s ChatGPT. It has an edge over other AI bots like ChatGPT and Microsoft’s Copilot as Google is a decades old trusted search engine, known for its user-friendly interface and optimised research.

While Google was hesitant to integrate the new generative AI technology into its search engine, Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, said that launching AI overview is an attempt to showcase the company’s vigorous efforts in artificial intelligence and their dedication to prevent dissemination of misleading information.

How does AI overview change the search engine forever?

Earlier, when one used to Google anything, pages and pages of websites would appear. Now, with AI overview, users will be able to get an overview on top of the page, summarising the best of the content, giving users the benefit of getting what they are looking for without checking every single website.

Pichai also said in a conference that the responses generated through AI overview wouldn’t just rely on information available online but will also include human reviews to improve the quality of results and products.

How does AI overview work?

With fastened and advanced technology, AI overview quickly scans all the contents related to the question asked and provides a compiled, concrete, simplified answer to ease the process of searching.

How to use AI overview in India?

Launched in the US on May 15, AI overview is yet to come to India, however, it is available via Google Labs platform. It is expected to launch for all users by the end of this year, with an aim of reaching a billion people by the end of 2024.

AI overview is not just about getting the quickest answers, it also has a wide range of other features, such as a Real-time translator, where one can speak directly into the mic available on their Google search tab and get a translation. It also features video and image search, through the help of Google Lens.
