Google Rolls Out Cool New Feature: Make Pictures with Text!

Got an image in your head but can't quite put it on paper? Google's got you covered! The tech giant has just launched its Search Generative Experience (SGE), and it's about to make your searches a lot more visual.

How's It Work?

If you're part of Google’s Search Labs program, just punch in a text prompt in the Google search bar. Voila! You'll get a bunch of images to pick from, crafted especially for you. Think of it like ordering a custom-made burger, but for pictures.

For a taste of what SGE can do, Google showcased a fun example: typing “draw an image of a capybara wearing a chefs hat and cooking breakfast” brought to life exactly that. And if the first shot isn’t perfect? You can always tweak your request for a do-over.

Cruising through Google Images? Keep an eye out for a new box that'll let you craft images on the fly based on your search. It's like having a little artist in your pocket.

Safety First

With all the buzz around AI, Google is playing it safe. They’re taking steps to make sure these AI-created images are used the right way. Every pic made using SGE will have a clear "created by AI" tag. And, just to be extra careful, Google's putting a pin in making lifelike faces or images of famous folks. If you’re under 18, you'll have to wait a bit longer to play with this feature, as Google's keeping it 18+ for now.

But Wait, There's More!

Need a quick draft for an email or report? Google's extending the SGE magic to written content too. Type in what you need, decide on the length and tone, and you’re set. If it’s a winner, you can move that draft straight to Google Docs or Gmail.
