Why can't I turn summarizer off?

Description of the issue:

Cannot find this alleged opt-out setting to deactivate the summarizer integrated into
Brave search.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Use Brave search (ironically enough) to look for a way to turn it off.
  2. Read that users can opt out of the AI-powered summarizer via the settings menu.
  3. Fail to find this opt-out slider anywhere.

Expected result:

Well, you know, the ability to turn it off. Good grief.

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Version 1.48.171 Chromium: 110.0.5481.177 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:


The setting is not yet displayed in the search settings, despite Brave stating that users can turn off Summarizer results in the settings.

Here is how that is done:

  1. Load https://search.brave.com/settings.
  2. Locate the Summarizer option and toggle it off.

That was what was said in this post.

I know, it’d be nice if they didn’t talk out of their behinds when making press releases like that.
