AI, AI, everywhere, and every bit a game-changer! These two little letters are like a hit pop song - they're on everyone's lips and shaking up the world! And now, they're making quite a splash in the e-commerce pool too.
Imagine if your product images could go from 'meh' to 'marvelous' with just a touch of AI magic. You heard it right! Here’s the deal:
Make Your Product Standout!
It’s always a struggle to make your product stand out. Well, Google has something in store to cover those concerns. They're pulling the curtain back on their new tool, the dazzling Product Studio. And, it's launching in the US in just a few months!
Packed with the power of generative AI, this tool is a game-changer for Shopping merchants. No need to shell out bucks for editing or customizing product images anymore. Google's gifting you the power to do it all, and it's absolutely free!
With Product Studio, you won't diversify your product and lifestyle images but make them stand out in the e-commerce crowd. You can use text prompts within Product Studio for a quick image makeover. You can even instantly erase the background for that clean, dreamy look!
The global rollout is scheduled to be finished by 2024.

The answer is at the end of this newsletter.👇
🔔 It's a wrap for YouTube Stories!
Well, folks, it's time to wave goodbye to YouTube Stories. YouTube has decided to withdraw this feature on June 26, 2023, as it shifts its focus onto better things like Shorts, Community posts, and live videos.
Back in 2018, YouTube Stories made its grand entrance, offering creators with over 10,000 subscribers a platform to share their behind-the-scenes banter, sneak peeks, quick updates, and more. However, YouTube has decided to refocus its efforts, acknowledging that Stories didn't quite hit the mark.
In a recent announcement, YouTube acknowledged that Stories did not perform as well as Community posts. They reported that creators who used both features received significantly more comments and likes on their Community posts.
