Chat to Google with this new feature from the Browser Company

Do you remember the “If Google was a guy” College Humour (now Dropout) skit? In it, the Google search we all know and love gets a human face, and would-be Googlers show up to ask this human Google to do their searches for them. It gets pretty wacky, fast.

The Browser Company’s latest launch feels like the company saw the video and said, “Hey, let’s make it a feature.”

Announced yesterday, Call Arc is a new feature in Arc Search, the company’s AI-powered mobile search companion. Picture this: You’re in your kitchen trying to remember a recipe to cook tonight. You pick up your phone, and instead of typing, you put it to your ear, and ask for an “authentic carbonara recipe.” From there, Arc Search will play some hold music before providing a verbal answer and standing by for another question. 

It even looks like a regular phone call. Pull it away from your ear, and you’ll see an iPhone-esque splash screen complete with a caller ID, hang-up button, loudspeaker option, and read more button. 

Arc Search first launched in January of this year and initially made waves because of its ‘browse for me’ option. This AI-powered function allows users to get a summarized version of their search instead of the more typical browsing experience they’re used to. Arc’s been working to add more personality to web surfing, and we think it’s safe to say they did it.

Work smarter, not harder with these four tools

The tech world is moving at break-neck speed, and so are our work lives. If you work in a startup, you’ve probably felt the rush of building and shipping new features to keep up with growing trends like generative AI and spatial computing recently. 

There’s an old saying that goes something like “a worker is only as good as their tools.” While there’s some nuance to that, it can’t be denied that a good product can make your life ten times easier. So, in that spirit, here are some recently launched tools that make your work life more efficient: 

Code & Line is a developer-orientated note-taking tool built by Berra Kerraman, a solo founder and front-end developer. It’s designed to help developers provide a more detailed understanding of their code. Its core feature allows users to target specific code lines with each note, aiming for a line-by-line explanation of the snippet.

Findr 2.0 is an AI-powered tool designed to be you and your team's work assistant. It can answer questions, find information, write documentation, and more by interacting with your company’s existing tooling and knowledge base. 

CANVID for Windows makes it easier to quickly record your screen for things like showing off a demo, asking for feedback, or logging a bug. It prioritizes smooth mouse movement and automatic zooms for pointing out specific points. It also comes with customizable features like backgrounds and adding blur. 

Granola is built for people in back-to-back meetings (hello, me). As you’re chatting on your call, Granola will automatically start taking notes by transcribing your meeting. It captures every detail and highlights the most important points — no more post-meeting docs! 

There you have it! Four new apps to help you get to grips with moving fast and breaking things. After all, it’s all about working smarter, not harder.

This new AI tool lets you breeze through documentation with a single promptThis new AI tool lets you breeze through documentation with a single prompt

There’s no shortage of AI coding copilots out there. I mean I only just covered GitHub’s latest coding copilot in this very newsletter, and Amazon just launched their own recently too. But where are the AI tools for non-coding related tasks like say, writing technical documents or engineering design?

Shin Kim, the founder of Eraser, an all-in-one diagrams and documentation designing tool, had the same question. So after helping build 1 million+ diagrams for customers, him and his team set to work on Eraser AI

Eraser AI is a copilot that allows anyone to generate technical design assets by writing natural language prompts that outputs diagram code that you can save, edit, and share with your team. 

Say you’re building a cloud infrastructure and you want to visually explain your thought process to your team. Instead of spending hours designing a diagram, you can instead tell Eraser what you need and it will get to work generating colorful, accurate, and icon-studded diagrams to your taste. 

Or maybe you need a design doc to pitch to your manager. Drop in your specifications and Eraser will get to work generating outlines for planning documents like RFCs (request for comments) and full fledged design thinking documents. 

Like a lot of AI copilots, Eraser shines when you know what you want and, in that spirit, you can make direct edits to any and all documents it generates before deciding on the final iteration.
