The blowback to Google’s AI Overviews is growing now that they are showing up for all U.S. users — and sometimes getting things glaringly wrong.

Why it matters: The search giant’s addition of AI-generated summaries to the top of search results could fundamentally reshape what’s available on the internet and who profits from it.

  • Many users habitually use Google searches to check facts, particularly now that AI chatbots deliver sometimes suspect answers. Now these search results are subject to the same mistakes and “hallucinations” that plague the chatbots.

Driving the news: Google last week announced that it was making AI-generated summaries the default experience in the U.S. for many search queries.
