Google has released what it calls its biggest expansion to date for its AI assistant, Bard, with new, useful features like built-in conversations and customizable options that include a “long way” to get detailed answers.
Continued A battle between Bard, Microsoft’s Bing and OpenAI’s ChatGPT has expanded in several areas. To date, Bing is one of the only chatbots that you can interact with via a microphone, using the Bing mobile version. Google has taken a different approach: now Bard will talk to you, pronouncing words. Bard will also speak not only in English, but also in Arabic, Chinese, German, Hindi and Spanish, and access to the Bard chatbot has been opened in Europe, too.
For many users, the three most useful features coming to the new update include new threaded threads, enhanced communication options and image analysis. ChatGPT assigns a topic to each new topic (which Google calls a thread), and you can jump back and forth between your chat history to find what you’re looking for. Now Bard will be able to do that, too, so you can go back to old conversations. (A Google representative says there’s no limit to how many threads you can post, or how far back they can go.) Although you can publish discussions for your own use, you’ll be able to share them with a friend. , too.
Bing was also the first to implement different types of informal communication: Appropriate, Correct, and Creative. Google’s Bard takes a slightly different approach: You can choose simple, long, short, professional or casual instead. This is only in English, however. One advantage of the GPT-4 conversion for ChatGPT and its support for long inputs and outputs, and it seems that Bard is trying to match the capabilities of ChatGPT here.

Finally, Google is adding photo analysis tools was announced at their Google I/O conference at Bard as well. With Bard, you will be able to analyze the content of the image – what this means, in fact, is in the sky. Basically, this means you can upload an image, just like you can with Google Image Search, and ask a question using Bard. However, it does not include image creation so far.
Google seems to be going through with what it announced at Google I/O, although not everything is yet. Bard’s ability to extract code and run it is not available, although it can be deployed to Google Collab’s test server and a third party, Replit.
However, Bard is free, available, and Google seems committed to pushing it as far as it can go. You should try out the Bard’s new abilities now.
