Universe introduces AI-powered GUS

In a game-changing move, Universe, known for its no-code mobile website builder, has rolled out an AI-powered website designer named GUS (short for Generative Universe Sites). The tool is currently in its beta phase, but it promises to significantly simplify the process of building and launching custom websites. Importantly, it's all operated via an iOS device, making it even more accessible and convenient for users.

GUS interacts through text conversation

GUS revolutionizes website design by incorporating a text conversation format. Users simply chat with GUS about their website preferences, including the type, design, color scheme, and the number of pages they wish to have. By asking these pertinent questions, GUS ensures that the final product aligns closely with the user's vision and requirements.

GUS provides fully editable layouts

GUS takes the information provided by the users and crafts an editable layout for the website. Notably, this layout is completely customizable, with users able to make changes manually. This flexibility extends to all components, including images, which can be swapped out as desired. In this way, GUS offers the user total control, without the need for any coding skills.

Universe's mission and future plans

Universe is on a mission to democratize internet building, and GUS encapsulates this perfectly. The AI-powered tool is currently available in beta to all users who update their Universe app on iOS devices. Looking ahead, Universe has plans to extend this tool to the web, widening its reach to include users without an iPhone and those who prefer working on a desktop.

Universe's GUS shares similarities with the AI Site Generator recently launched by Wix. Both these tools leverage AI to make website creation easier, especially for small and medium-sized businesses. By providing an easier path to website creation, these tools can help businesses launch their online presence, driving sales and growth.

Universe's commitment to inclusivity

Universe is committed to promoting inclusivity and accessibility in web design. The launch of GUS represents a significant milestone in this commitment. With its AI capabilities, GUS empowers individuals from all walks of life, allowing them to bring their creative visions to the digital realm. Regardless of their tech-savviness or background, GUS makes web design a possibility for all.

Universe, founded in 2014, has made impressive strides, evident from the $47.3 million it has raised in funding to date. This includes a $30 million influx as part of a Series B round in December 2021, which saw participation from Google Ventures, Javelin Venture Partners, Box Group, among others. Earlier, in April 2020, Universe had secured a $10 million Series A round from Google Ventures.
