Google Chrome is rolling out a new feature that uses generative AI to summarize articles. The feature, called “SGE while browsing,” is currently available in the Google app on iOS and Android, and will come to Chrome on desktop “in the days ahead.”
To use the feature, open an article and tap the “Summarize” button. Google’s AI will then generate a bulleted list of the key points from the article. You can click on any of the points to jump to the corresponding section of the article.
Google says that the SGE while browsing feature is designed to help people “more deeply engage” with long-form content. The company believes that by providing a quick and easy way to summarize articles, people will be more likely to read and understand the information.
The SGE while browsing feature is just one example of how Google is using AI to improve its products. In recent years, the company has invested heavily in AI research and has developed a number of AI-powered features for its products, including Google Search, Google Translate, and Google Assistant.
As AI technology continues to evolve, it is likely that we will see even more innovative ways to use AI to improve our lives. The SGE while browsing feature is a glimpse of what the future holds, and it is a sign that AI has the potential to make a real difference in the way we consume information.
Here are some additional details about the SGE while browsing feature:
- The feature is only available for articles that are freely available on the web.
- The AI is trained on a massive dataset of text and code and is able to identify the critical points in an article.
- The summary is generated in a matter of seconds and is presented in a bulleted list.
- Users can click on any of the points in the summary to jump to the corresponding section of the article.
The SGE while browsing feature is still under development, but it has the potential to be a valuable tool for people who want to quickly and easily understand long-form content. As the feature continues to improve, it is likely to become an even more popular way to read articles online.
