Google Marketing Live Keynote 2024: Embracing a New Era of AI in Marketing 

Welcome to the future of marketing, as unveiled at the Google Marketing Live Keynote 2024. This year’s event highlighted the transformative potential of artificial intelligence (AI) across Google’s product suite, emphasising how AI can be swiftly implemented to enhance marketing efforts and drive better consumer engagement. Here are the key takeaways from the keynote. 

The New Era of AI 

Google is ushering in a new era of AI, moving from the question “What is AI?” to “What can AI do for me?” and “How can I implement it as quickly as possible?” This shift is encapsulated in Project Astra, a groundbreaking live video view AI tool that promises to be 100 times more efficient than tools from just 18 months ago. By integrating AI across all its products, Google aims to build better consumer products and achieve a super-scale impact. 

Enhancing Search with AI 

Human curiosity knows no bounds, with 15% of daily search queries being completely new. Google is leveraging its new Gemini model, tailored for Google Search, to enhance user satisfaction. AI overviews, which provide quick insights, are now available to all U.S. users, with global rollouts planned. 

Emerging Search Trends: 

  1. Exactly What I Want Search: Users get precise results tailored to their queries. 
  1. Complex Search Made Easy: AI simplifies long-tail and complex search queries. 
  1. Search Beyond Words: Google Lens is now handling 12 billion searches a month, with upcoming features for video search.

Revolutionising YouTube 

YouTube continues to dominate with 70 billion daily views. New generative AI tools like Veo for video creation, Music AI Sandbox, and Imagen 3 for image generation were introduced, promising to enhance content creation and engagement. 

Innovative Ad Formats and Features
