Google has unveiled the latest update to its Bard model, introducing a range of new features that position it as the most intelligent and versatile iteration to date. This update not only enhances Bard’s linguistic capabilities across numerous languages and regions but also seamlessly integrates it with popular Google applications and services.
To achieve this, Google has implemented state-of-the-art reinforcement learning techniques to boost Bard’s intuitiveness and creativity. Now, users can engage with Bard on creative projects, initiate conversations in one language, and effortlessly transition to more than 40 different languages and regions. Additionally, Bard is equipped to provide in-depth coding assistance and explore various topics with heightened quality and accuracy.

Unlocking Bard’s Full Potential
Since its initial launch in February, Bard has been evolving continuously, thanks to valuable user feedback and advancements in the PaLM2 model. The model has been fine-tuned to be more intuitive, imaginative, and responsive, covering a vast array of languages and countries worldwide.
Google is taking a significant leap forward by expanding Bard’s capabilities through Bard Extensions. These extensions enable Bard to access real-time information from popular Google apps and services like Maps, YouTube, Hotels, and Flights. Users can seamlessly integrate information from multiple sources, facilitating the faster realization of their ideas.
Extensions are enabled by default, but users have the flexibility to disable them at any time. Moreover, Bard can now interact with information from Gmail, Docs, and Drive, allowing users to find, summarize, and answer questions related to their personal content. Importantly, user data from Google Workspace will not be used to train Bard’s public model, and users can opt out of this feature if they choose.
Bard’s Extensions provides a natural and intuitive way to access information from various apps and services, simplifying complex tasks. For example, users can ask Bard to look up flights for Valentine’s Day, find nearby flower shops, and even compose a romantic poem, all within a single conversation. While these features are currently available in English, Google plans to expand them to other languages in the future.
“This is the first step in a fundamentally new capability for Bard – the ability to talk to other apps and services to provide more helpful responses. This is a very young area of AI – we are still learning and iterating fast – but are excited to make these features available to users and get their feedback.”
Do more with Bard
The company acknowledges the challenges associated with large language models, including the potential for presenting inaccurate information. To address this, Google has integrated the power of Google Search into Bard, enabling users to cross-check AI-generated responses.
When Bard provides a response that can be evaluated, it will be highlighted, and users can click to find similar or different content. It’s crucial to note that these links from Google Search do not imply that they informed Bard’s initial response.
With the assistance of Google Search, the “G” button can help users double-check Bard’s AI-generated responses by finding content that is likely similar to or different from its statements. Starting with English, when a statement can be evaluated, users will see it highlighted in Bard’s response and can click to learn more.
Creativity often draws inspiration from the work of others, and Google aims to facilitate this process by allowing users to use shared Bard conversations as a foundation for their creative endeavors. When someone shares a Bard conversation through the public link-sharing feature, recipients can continue the conversation in their accounts and build upon the existing content.
As part of the company’s commitment to responsible AI development, they are expanding access to existing English-language features across all 40+ supported languages and regions. Users can now upload images using Google Lens, receive Google Search images as responses, and modify Bard’s responses to suit their preferences.
Google mentioned, “As we continue to build Bard responsibly, we’re now expanding access to existing English language features — you can upload images with Google Lens, get Google Search images in responses, and modify Bard’s responses to be simpler, longer, shorter, more professional or more casual in all 40+ supported languages and countries.”
This added flexibility gives users greater control over their creative processes, and the inclusion of images in prompts and responses opens up new avenues for creativity.
