June 2024: Update

Today, we're thrilled to update you on our last month's improvements: released a new search engine, team features, published 2 new open-source integrations and added a bunch of minor fixes.

🌟 New Engines

We're excited to release Baidu Search API offering organic results, answer box, knowledge graph, related questions, top searches and more results.

To ease integration, JSON keys align closely with those of the Google Search or Bing Search APIs. You can configure Baidu to return up to 50 organic results per search. Perfect for building tools across.

👥 Team Accounts

To enable team functionality, users must have a Production plan or higher. When a user upgrades to a Production plan or higher, their account is automatically converted to a team account. Users on the Free and Developer plans will see a clear explanation on the Team page about how to access this feature.

Owners and Admins can invite other users by providing their name and email. Invited users can join the team using social sign-up, email/password, or an existing account. Additionally, the Owner can transfer the account to another user. Invited users must verify their email, and verified emails will be displayed on the Team page.

Team admin perspective

Admins have full access to manage team settings, invite and remove users, and monitor team activity. They can also manage billing and account settings, ensuring the team operates smoothly.
Developer perspective

Developers have access to the Search History and Search Analytics but do not have the same administrative privileges as admins. They cannot manage team settings or invite/remove users or manage billing, allowing them to focus on development tasks without altering team configurations.

🔗 Dify Integration​

​Dify - an open-source LLM app development platform. Dify's intuitive interface combines AI workflow, RAG pipeline, agent capabilities, model management, observability features, and more, letting you quickly go from prototype to production.

We are excited to announce that SearchApi now integrates with four engines: Google Search, Google Jobs, Google News, and YouTube Transcripts APIs.
