Google made an official announcement on September 19, revealing the launch of its most capable and feature-rich model of the artificial intelligence chatbot, Bard. This release comes after the success of OpenAI’s ChatGPT, which prompted Google to develop its own alternative, Bard, earlier this year. Since its initial launch, Google has been continuously enhancing Bard by introducing various features to make it more competitive and useful.
According to Google’s announcement, user feedback has played a crucial role in accelerating Bard’s development, making it more intuitive, imaginative, and responsive than ever before. The latest update aims to provide users with a higher quality and more accurate experience, surpassing other AI alternatives like ChatGPT.
One of the major additions to Bard is its ability to explore possibilities in collaboration with users. Whether it’s engaging in playful and creative interactions, seamlessly switching between languages, seeking in-depth coding assistance, or gaining insights from different perspectives, Bard aims to cater to a wide range of user needs.
Furthermore, Bard now offers real-time information from various Google apps such as Maps, YouTube, Hotels, and Flights. These extensions are enabled by default, but users have the flexibility to disable them at any time.
Google envisions Bard becoming an integral part of work, and to achieve this, they plan to enable Bard in Gmail, Docs, and Drive. This integration will allow users to leverage Bard’s capabilities to find, summarize, and answer questions across their personal content. However, Google has clarified that Bard’s public model training does not utilize Google Workspace data.
Additionally, users now have the option to cross-verify Bard’s AI-generated responses using Google Search, as well as share Bard conversations to gather more ideas. Moreover, users can even use Google Lens to explore Bard’s responses further.
With these advancements, Google aims to provide users with a powerful and versatile AI chatbot experience, empowering them to accomplish tasks, gain insights, and collaborate effectively across various domains.
