Google’s Bard AI now available in ‘most of the world,’ comes with new features too

July 13, 2023

Despite Google’s decade-old dominance in search, the company is playing catch up after the tremendous success of OpenAI’s ChatGPT. However, the company is working hard to be on par or even outperform its competitors on many fronts. Recently, Google announced the expansion of the Bard AI and a plethora of new features for the AI tool.

In its official blog post, Google announced that Bard AI is now available in “most of the world,” covering places like Brazil and across Europe. Besides making it available for users across different parts of the world, Google is also ensuring that people interact with the Bard in their native languages. The search giant has also announced that Bard AI can now collaborate with users in 40 different languages, including Arabic, Chinese, German, Hindi, and Spanish.

An even more exciting announcement is the addition of new features to Bard AI. The PaLM 2-based AI chatbot is now capable of delivering responses in multiple tones, including simple, long, short, professional, or casual. This is similar to how Microsoft’s Bing allows you to set between Creative, Balanced, and Precise modes to get answers from the chatbot. Besides adjusting responses, you can also listen to answers given by Bard: all you have to do is click the sound icon, and it will start playing. You can listen to Bard’s answers in over 40 languages.

Keeping productivity in mind, Google also announced features such as the ability to pin and rename conversations in Bard. You can pin the most important conversation to revisit it later and resume to ask additional questions, if any. The Bing AI chatbot offers similar functionality through Recent activity. For coders, Bard can now export Python codes to Replit alongside Google Colab. And you can share everything Bard produces with your friends with shareable links.

Lastly, Bard AI can now let you upload images if you want more information about that and are in need of a killer caption for that specific still. However, Google has confirmed that Bard could throw information about images only in English. Support for more languages will be added “soon,” per the company’s announcement post.
