- Suggested actions: NotebookLM will recommend next steps based on your current task and content, helping you stay focused and productive.
- AI-first design: Built from the ground up using the latest AI technology, NotebookLM offers a unique and innovative experience.
- Privacy and security: NotebookLM only has access to the source material you choose to upload, and your files and interactions with the AI are not visible to other users.
NotebookLM is exclusively available in the U.S. for individuals 18 and older, and is powered by Google’s most advanced AI model: Gemini Pro.
How to use it:
1. Visit the NotebookLM App. For the best experience, use NotebookLM on a desktop computer, as the mobile view might have font size limitations.
2. Upload source documents from Google Drive, drag-and-drop PDFs, or paste text excerpts. Add up to 20 sources with 200k max words.
3. Once your documents are uploaded, NotebookLM transforms into an AI expert tailored to your specific sources, ready to assist with any queries related to your project. Note that NotebookLM may still sometimes give inaccurate responses, so you may want to confirm any facts independently.
