This year’s Google IO was all about AI. The company announced a number of AI-powered features in its products on Wednesday. The search giant also launched a new page called Google Labs to get people to sign up for these experiments and test out AI-powered features for feedback before the wider release.
Currently, you can view four projects on the Google Labs homepage. AI-powered Google search features; AI in Google Workspaces; Tailwind, the company’s new project about smarter note-taking; and MusicLM, a new tool that lets you generate music through text prompts. You can learn more about each project or sign up for the waitlist to try them out.
At this time, search labs are only available in the US and in English. In addition, most experiments require users to be 18 or older to join the waitlist. Google Labs can be accessed through the website or through the Labs icon in the Google app.
In addition to opening a new Labs page for AI experiments, Google has also lifted the waiting list on the Bard chatbot and made it available to users in 180 countries, along with support for Japanese and Korean.
