Google has released AutoDraw, a web-based drawing tool that combines machine learning (ML) with artwork generated by great artists to assist you in sketching. It will help you turn your “awful” sketches into better visuals which you can then use in your projects, etc.
Drawing on a phone or computer may be sluggish and challenging for those who are not artists. AutoDraw is a new type of drawing tool that allows anyone to make anything graphic quickly.
AuroDraw is derived from the company’s current QuickDraw tool, offering a little game in which you are given a one-word prompt, 20 seconds to draw it, and the neural network AI is asked to identify your artwork properly. The suggestion feature in AutoDraw suggests clip art substitutes for your scribbled image as you draw.
“AutoDraw is a new kind of drawing tool. It pairs machine learning with drawings from talented artists to help everyone create anything visual, fast. There’s nothing to download. Nothing to pay for. And it works anywhere: smartphone, tablet, laptop, desktop, etc,” says Google.
What is AutoDraw?
According to Google’s official blog post, AutoDraw is “a new web-based tool that pairs machine learning with drawings created by talented artists to help you draw,” and it was created because “drawing on your phone or computer can be slow and difficult.”
The idea is that you would be able to rapidly obtain clean and simple graphics from experienced artists, allowing you to effortlessly produce fliers, invites, and other things that would otherwise need graphic-design knowledge.
Why should you consider the new Google Cloud Consulting tools?
“AutoDraw’s suggestion tool uses the same technology used in QuickDraw, to guess what you’re trying to draw. Right now, it can guess hundreds of drawings, and we look forward to adding more over time. If you are interested in creating drawings for others to use with AutoDraw, contact us here, We hope AutoDraw will help make drawing and creating a little more accessible and fun for everyone,” Google’s Experiment Lab announcement read.
How to use AutoDraw
You just begin drawing your best depiction of a pizza, home, puppy, or birthday cake, and the algorithms attempt to figure out what you’re attempting to create. It then attempts to match your squiggles with drawings in its database, and if any plausible matches are found, they are shown in a list at the top of your virtual canvas.
If you prefer one of those possibilities, simply click on it, and AutoDraw will replace your unprofessional design with something a little more professional. There is nothing to be downloaded. There is nothing to pay for. And it works on any device: smartphone, tablet, laptop, desktop, and so on.

When you first visit the website, you are met with a blank screen. Start sketching right away; you don’t have to be perfect or correct. When you’re finished, you’ll be offered a number of alternatives on the top panel, from which you may choose anyone to finish your design.
To estimate what you’re attempting to draw, AutoDraw’s suggestion feature uses the same technology as QuickDraw. It can predict hundreds of designs, and they are constantly adding more.
- Open your web browser.
- Go to the official Google AutoDraw website.
