Google Assistant may soon summarize webpages

Google Assistant may soon summarize webpages

San Francisco: Google is reportedly working on a feature that will allow users to use the Google Assistant to summarize webpages.

Spotted as a work-in-progress in the latest Google app beta (version 14.29), the company is preparing a new ‘Summary’ option for Google Assistant that will appear when you invoke Assistant while browsing the web, reports 9To5Google.

Moreover, users can ask directly by saying “summarize this”.

The summarization option is expected to appear when users browse directly through Chrome or when an app opens a webpage in a custom tab.

However, it is still unclear whether this option will be a Pixel-exclusive feature at launch.

The Summarize option will be one of the first modern generative artificial intelligence (AI) powered features for Google Assistant, the report says.

Last month, the tech giant introduced two new voices—Lime and Indigo—for its virtual assistant software application.

Earlier this month, the company was reported to have “de-promoted” plans to launch ‘Bubble Characters’, an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered mobile chatbot application featuring interactive digital characters designed specifically for Gen Z users.

When a product is prioritized by Google, its development work ends.

The tech giant had been working on the app since the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2021.

The app’s description mentions that it features “human-like” conversations such as “take action” and “engage GenZ.”
