How experiments work

Experiments may change how Google Search appears. For example, you might get an AI-powered overview at the top of search results. Also, you might get different design layouts than you’re used to.

Why can't I use Search Labs or SGE with a Google Workspace for Education account?

Before we make generative AI tools available to Google Workspace for Education accounts, especially those for users under 18, we want to make sure:

  • School administrators have transparency and control over how students access generative AI with their school accounts.
  • School staff and faculty are informed about generative AI tools so they can make decisions that align with their school policies. This includes giving school staff and faculty time to test generative AI tools in their school environment.

As we work on this, we'll continue to work with the education community to explore new ways to bring helpful tools and functionalities to educators and students.

I turned on the experiment. Why can't I find it?
  • SGE: Not all queries will generate an AI-powered overview in your search results. In this case, your search results won’t include SGE content.
  • SGE while browsing: Generative AI features may not be available for certain pages, like:
How long will experiments be available?

You can find the end date of an experiment on its card on the Search Labs page, though these may change over time.

What happened to Code Tips?

While the Code Tips experiment has ended, we took what we learned from the experiment and applied it to SGE. That means you can now find responses to your coding queries directly in SGE.
