Google is rolling out Bard, its incredible AI, across more than 180 countries and announcing a plethora of new features to enrich the user experience. Don't miss this opportunity to discover all that this AI has to offer!
Bard: the intelligent assistant accessible to all
Bard, the Google chatbot powered by LaMDA, is positioned as an alternative to ChatGPT and is now equipped with many new features. Announced during the I/O conference dedicated to developers, these new features promise to considerably improve the user experience during searches. Among them are the export of answers to a Google Docs document, visual search and support for new languages.
Bard's most notable innovation is undoubtedly its global availability. Google has confirmed that the chatbot is no longer subject to a waiting list, allowing users in more than 180 countries to test the AI in English as of today. In addition, Bard is also available in Japanese and Korean, and Google promises to add another 40 languages “soon,” hopefully including French.
Bard: a more visual user experience
Google wants to make Bard more visual. The company is looking to enrich the AI with images in addition to text answers. For example, if a user asks the AI what places to visit in Barcelona, in addition to text, Bard will display images of the most emblematic sites or monuments of the city.
Thanks to the integration of Google Lens, Bard also allows searches based on images. For example, a user can ask the chatbot to create a “funny description of a photo of two dogs”. Using Google Lens, Bard will analyze the image, detect relevant information, such as breed, and generate the description.
Exciting new features for Bard
Google is also announcing a series of interesting little new features for Bard. One of them is the activation of a dark mode in the chatbot to reduce eyestrain and offer a different aesthetic. In addition, the chatbot now has an “Export” button to send the text to a Google document or even to a Gmail email.
Bard also gets improvements for developers and programmers, such as the ability to export lines of code to Colab and Replit, or general improvements for source citations.
Finally, Google confirms that Bard will include features supported by third-party services. The first of these will be the generation of images from a brief text description using Adobe Firefly, Adobe's AI model. This feature works in a similar way to DALL-E or the one included in Bing chat by Microsoft. All the user will have to do is ask Bard to create an image, and the AI will display up to four different results.
All these new features, we repeat, are available today in more than 180 countries. However, some of them may take a few weeks to be fully deployed. Don't miss this opportunity to discover Bard and its revolutionary features to improve your user experience!
