If you are a Google user like us, you will be pleased and excited to know that Bard (the Google AI equivalent to ChatGPT) now integrates with Google apps and services for more helpful responses.
Bard is also getting even better at understanding and responding to your needs.
One of the biggest benefits of Bard is that it can tailor its responses to exactly what you need. For example, you could ask Bard to start a trip planning Google Doc for you and your friends, draft up your online marketplace listing, or help explain a science topic to your kids.
Now, Bard is getting even better at customising its responses so you can easily bring your ideas to life.
Here are some of the new developments with Bard and Google announced this week:
- Bard now integrates with Google apps and services for more helpful responses. This means that Bard can find and show you relevant information from the Google tools you use every day, even when the information you need is across multiple apps and services. For example, if you’re planning a trip, you can ask Bard to grab the dates that work for everyone from Gmail, look up real-time flight and hotel information, see Google Maps directions to the airport, and even watch YouTube videos of things to do there, all within one conversation.
- Bard’s “Google it” feature has been improved to double-check its answers. This means that you can now more easily verify the accuracy of Bard’s responses. When you click on the “G” icon, Bard will read the response and evaluate whether there is content across the web to substantiate it. When a statement can be evaluated, you can click on the highlighted phrases and learn more about supporting or contradicting information found by Search.
- Bard’s features have been expanded to more places. This means that you can now use Bard in more Google apps and services, such as Gmail, Docs, and Drive.
Google is committed to protecting your personal information. If you choose to use the Workspace extensions, your content from Gmail, Docs, and Drive is not seen by human reviewers, used by Bard to show you ads, or used to train the Bard model. And of course, you’re always in control of your privacy settings when deciding how you want to use these extensions, and you can turn them off at any time.
Here are some examples of how you can now use Bard in your daily life:
- Plan a trip: Ask Bard to help you plan your next trip, from finding the best flights and hotels to booking activities and transportation.
- Write a cover letter: Ask Bard to help you write a cover letter for your dream job. Bard can help you tailor your letter to the specific job you’re applying for and highlight your most relevant skills and experience.
- Create a presentation: Ask Bard to help you create a presentation for work or school. Bard can help you brainstorm ideas, gather information, and design your slides.
- Learn a new skill: Ask Bard to help you learn a new skill, such as coding, playing a musical instrument, or speaking a new language. Bard can provide you with personalised instruction and feedback.
Whilst Bard is still under development, but it has the potential to revolutionise the way we work, learn, and play. With its new features and integrations, Bard is becoming even more powerful and versatile.
AI apps, such as Bard, will be an everyday tool that’s part of our lives and the best way to learn about Bard is to jump right in and start using it to see its potential.
Have a great day!
