Google is launching an open beta of its new search engine next week, making it the first major tech company to do so in a major market.
The beta is open to any person or company interested in running a search, and will begin on May 19.
Google has been experimenting with search engines since 2013, but hasn’t launched an open service since, partly because it is still working on its own search engine.
Google, which announced the beta last month, is currently focused on testing the search engine to ensure it’s as competitive as possible against competitors like Facebook and Yahoo.
In addition to Google’s search engine, Google will offer video, audio, and text search.
Google says it’s also working on a chat and video app, and it will soon roll out its YouTube search.
The new beta will also provide more information about what Google can offer advertisers, and the companies that run those search engines will be able to provide that information to Google in addition to the search results themselves.
The search beta will open on May 13, and Google has a “design preview” to show what it can build in the future.
The announcement follows a yearlong review by Google’s parent company Alphabet, which found that the company’s search platform was broken.
Alphabet CEO Larry Page said at the time that the search beta is a “game changer” that will bring Google to the next level.
It’s not clear what features Google will introduce in the beta.
But it seems that Google is trying to make sure that it has enough information for it to launch its own version of its search service.
