Google’s Generative AI Integration
On Wednesday, Google announced that it would add generative AI features to its virtual assistant. According to Reuters, a firm executive said that an AI upgrade will enable the virtual assistant to help customers with things like vacation planning and email management and to ask pertinent follow-up questions.
Google, the American tech giant, revealed at its Made By Google event in New York that it will include the generative AI characteristics of its Bard chatbot into Google Assistant. The ultimate goal of this combination is to provide individualized help with logical and creative tasks on mobile devices.
Reportedly, Google is in competition with other internet giants to implement generative AI into their forthcoming and current offerings. This year, competitors have stepped up their efforts, including Meta Platforms, Amazon.com, and Microsoft.
It was also in discussion that in the future version of Google’s assistant, users would be able to enter images or voice to help answer queries by connecting their phone’s camera and microphone. As Google is still in the “learning phase” with generative AI, it will not include any features that generate income.
Google has stated that its trusted tester program will have access to the new software soon, however, a particular release date for the public has not been announced. The startup plans to release apps for both the Android and iOS platforms.
