In a revolutionary leap for digital creativity, Google has rolled out its AI-driven image generator, transforming the way users interact with search results. The feature, currently limited to users in the U.S. aged 18 and above, allows direct image generation within the Google Search engine.
To access this cutting-edge tool, users must connect to Google Labs and Search Generative Experience (SGE). Once inside, users input a text prompt, and within seconds, the neural network produces a vivid image. These images can be conveniently exported to Google Drive or downloaded to devices.
Remarkably, this functionality extends to Google Images, enabling users to generate images and even utilize Google Lens for real-image searches based on the AI-generated visuals.
However, Google has imposed some restrictions. The feature is currently exclusive to U.S.-based users participating in English-language programs, ensuring a controlled rollout. Additionally, registration with Google Labs and SGE is a prerequisite.
To maintain ethical standards, Google prohibits the creation of images depicting celebrities or highly realistic human faces. Moreover, the company has introduced a digital watermarking system called SynthID, ensuring transparency and authenticity by labeling AI-generated creations within Google Search.
Accessible through the Labs tab (identified by a flask icon) in the Google app on iOS, Android, and Chrome desktop, this innovative tool heralds a new era for creativity, blurring the lines between artificial intelligence and human ingenuity. Stay tuned as Google’s AI-powered image generation transforms digital exploration for users worldwide.
