Amazon has confirmed it is testing a new feature in its Shopping app – summaries of product reviews, generated by AI.
The summary provides a summary of both positive and negative feedback about products. Beneath that is a note: “AI-generated from the text of customer reviews.”

What Amazon is saying. Amazon confirmed the test but declined to reveal any details about how it is generating these product summaries. An Amazon spokesperson said:
More generative AI at Amazon. The company is also reportedly preparing to add generative AI to its search experience. Amazon is also building tools for advertisers that generate videos and images.
