BARD: The AI Assistant Takes a Giant Leap Forward - July 13, 2023 Update
The future of virtual assistance is upon us, and it’s never been more exciting. AI technology is no longer a niche product but a fundamental part of everyday life. Bard, the artificial intelligence (AI) application that helps users explore possibilities and amplify their creativity, has expanded its capabilities exponentially. In this article, we'll be breaking down the recent updates and explaining how these changes impact everyday users like you and me.
BARD Gets Multilingual, and Crosses Borders
Bard is now available in more than 40 new languages, including but not limited to Arabic, Chinese, German, Hindi, and Spanish. This means that many more users from different linguistic backgrounds can interact with Bard in their native tongue, making the platform more accessible and user-friendly. Also, Bard's availability has expanded to include all 27 EU countries and Brazil, thus covering an extensive global user base.
Picture-Perfect Communication with Google Lens
Bard now integrates with Google Lens, a technology that recognizes images and provides relevant information about them. This means you can upload images to Bard, and it will help you understand the content of the image or provide creative inspiration based on it. This update brings an exciting, multi-dimensional way to interact with your AI assistant.
Hear It Out with Text-to-Speech
In a significant accessibility update, Bard reads responses aloud in over 40 languages. This feature is especially beneficial for users who process information better when it's heard rather than read or those who are visually impaired.
Efficient Organization with Pinned and Recent Threads
With Bard's new feature, you can now pin and rename conversations and even handle multiple conversations at once. This function is particularly useful if you're using Bard for brainstorming or project planning, as you can organize your thoughts and ideas more effectively.
Share and Inspire with Bard Conversations
Sharing Bard conversations with others means you can now easily share your ideas, inspirations, or collaborations with friends, colleagues, or social media followers. Sharing has been made simple, requiring only a click on a shareable link.
Bard now offers five new options to modify its responses, from making them simpler, longer, shorter, more professional, to more casual. This update allows users to tailor their interactions with Bard, ensuring the AI assistant aligns more closely with the user's unique style and needs.
Smoother Coding with Python Export to Replit
For the programmers out there, you can now export Python code from Bard to Replit, in addition to Google Colab. This feature will make your coding workflow smoother, allowing you to seamlessly transfer code and continue working on your programming tasks.
The recent Bard updates are about empowering users like you and me. Whether it's to help you express your thoughts in your native language, inspire you with images, listen to your ideas, organize your creative process, share your creations, adjust responses to your liking, or streamline your coding tasks - Bard is stepping up to enhance your user experience in every way possible. So, take advantage of these updates, and let Bard help you explore your possibilities!
