In May, Google introduced an experimental feature called Search Generative Experience (SGE), which uses the power of Google’s artificial intelligence to summarize search results. Despite the main idea of making it easier to search, users have reported problems such as slow speed and some crashes.
What the SGE feature offers
- Google provides an experimental feature called Search Generative Experience (SGE).
- The idea is to show the user the information they are looking for without having to click on links or enter additional queries.
- Uses artificial intelligence to summarize search results.
Limited access and performance issues
- Access to the function was received by a limited number of users who signed up for the Search Labs service.
- Some testers note that the search has become slower and sometimes crashes.
- On PC, answers are often supplemented with extra information in the form of cards on the right, and on mobile devices (so far only in the Google app) under the search result.
Problems with requests and loading times
- Users are reporting issues with some obvious requests like YouTube, Amazon, Wordle, Twitter, and Roblox.
- When using queries such as Facebook, Gmail, Apple, and Netflix, there is a long delay in loading search results.
- The Gmail query responds the fastest, at around two seconds, but for complex queries, load times can exceed six seconds.
Google’s Search Generative Experience (SGE) is receiving mixed reviews from users regarding slow performance and intermittent crashes, concludes NIXSolutions. While the feature offers a new approach to search, its current limitations need to be further improved to meet the needs of users for a more robust and faster search experience.
