What’s New on Google Maps

Google Maps introduced a new “Immersive View for Routes” feature in select cities. The new feature brings together all the information a user might need in one place. Including details on traffic simulations, bike lanes, complex intersections, parking and more.

Magic Editor and Magic Composition

Google has introduced an exciting feature called Magic Editor, powered by artificial intelligence. Which allows more advanced edits to be made to specific parts of newly taken photos. This innovative tool is able to modify the foreground or background. Fill in empty spaces and even reposition the subject for a more attractive framing.

In addition, Magic Compose, a new feature used in messages and conversations to rewrite text in different styles, has been introduced.

This feature offers the ability to make messages sound more positive, professional or even as if they were written by renowned playwrights. These new Google features give users creative and fun options to enhance their photos and express themselves in unique ways in their conversations.

PaLM 2

PaLM 2 is Google’s new large language model (LLM). This new language model will feed into Google’s updated chat tool, called Bard. The competitor to OpenAI’s ChatGPT, and it will serve as the base model for most of the new artificial intelligence features announced by the company. PaLM 2 also has improved support for writing and debugging code.

A Smarter Version of Bard

Google has announced exciting new features for Bard. Not only will it eliminate the waiting list and become available in over 180 countries and territories in English, but it will also expand its support for Japanese and Korean. With the goal of supporting 40 languages in the near future. One notable feature is Bard’s ability to display images in its responses, providing a more visual and interactive experience.

In addition, Google has entered into a partnership with Adobe to incorporate art generation capabilities into Bard. According to Kyle, Bard users will be able to create images using Firefly and then customize them using Express.

Within the platform, options for templates, fonts, stock images and other resources from the Express library will be offered so that users will have more creative options at their disposal.


Google’s Workspace suite is also getting the AI touch to make it smarter, with the addition of automatic table generation (but not formulas) in Sheets and image creation in Presentations and Meet. Initially, the automatic table is simpler, although there will be more to come regarding the use of AI to create formulas.

New features for Slides and Meet include the ability to type in what type of visualization you are looking for, and the AI will create that image. Specifically for Google Meet, that means custom backgrounds.


MusicLM is Google’s new experimental artificial intelligence tool that turns text into music. For example, if you are hosting a dinner party, you can simply type “soulful blues for a dinner party” and have the tool create multiple versions of the song.

Implementing Google Search

Google has introduced two new features in its Search to improve understanding of the content and context of images in search results. These new features include an “About this image” option, which provides additional information, and new markup that identifies AI-generated images.

Both features aim to provide greater transparency about the credibility of images and whether they have been generated by AI, although they acknowledge that this does not completely solve the problem of misinformation in AI images.

Separately, Google is experimenting with an AI-powered conversation mode in Search. Users will see suggested next steps when performing a search, along with an AI-backed snapshot of key information, including links to drill down on the topic.

By selecting the suggested next step, users will enter a conversation mode where they can ask Google additional questions about the explored topic, and context will be maintained from question to question.

In addition, Google has introduced a new filter called “Insights” that will be displayed at the top of some search results when it is felt that users would benefit from the experiences of others.

This will include posts on forums, Q&A sites, and social networking platforms, such as Reddit or YouTube. This feature will make it easier to find relevant links and related videos, providing a variety of perspectives in search results.

The New Sidekick Feature

In addition, Google has also presented Sidekick, an innovative tool. Sidekick aims to improve cues in the AI generation cycle, challenging even human skill in this area.

The Sidekick panel will be located on the side of Google Docs and will remain active by continuously reading and processing the entire document as it is being written, offering contextual suggestions that are tailored specifically to what has been written.

The Sidekick feature represents a significant advance in helping users during content creation. By using artificial intelligence strategically, this tool provides valuable, personalized support to improve writing and overall document quality.

By leveraging its constant and contextual processing capabilities, Sidekick promises to be a reliable companion for writers, offering accurate and relevant guidance at every stage of their work.


This tool is part of a series of AI-focused coding tools launching today and is also Google’s answer to GitHub’s Copilot, a chat tool used to ask coding questions. Codey is specifically trained to handle coding-related requests and is also trained to handle queries related to Google Cloud in general.

Google Presents ‘Universal Translator’

In a recent revelation, Google has announced the testing of an innovative translation service known as “Universal Translator”. This service has the ability to convert videos into a new language. By lip-syncing the speaker with words that were never spoken. This is an example of recent advances in AI making this feature possible. But it also poses risks that must be considered from the outset.

The process works as follows: the “experimental” service takes an input video. Such as a lecture originally recorded in English from an online course, transcribes the speech, translates it, generates a new voiceover in the same style and tone in the new language. Finally, it edits the video so that the lip movements match the new audio.

Pixel Fold

Google surprised by launching a Pixel Fold phone on May 4, that Google has been working on it for five years. The key to the Pixel Fold experience lies in its software. With a seamless transition between the external and internal screens that allows you to pick up where you left off when changing screen size.
