Google Bard is getting “more visual” to help users experience a user-friendly interface. For instance, users can ask the AI to find “must-see sights” in a particular region, and the tool would show relevant results with images – a feature ChatGPT lacks.
Google adds that Bard will soon get support for languages, including Japanese and Korean. The software giant also promised support for 40 additional languages, which may include.
What’s new with Bard?
Firstly, Google Bard is getting “more visual” to help users experience a user-friendly interface. For instance, users can ask the AI to find “must-see sights” in a particular region, and the AI with the power of Google Search and Knowledge Graph would show relevant results with images – a feature ChatGPT lacks. With Bard, the user can ask to change the viewing style (say tiles or listicle). Similarly, Google is improving Google Lens – a tool that lets users search for objects in an image. With the new capabilities, users can upload an image on Lens and ask the AI to generate a “funny caption.”
Additionally, Google notes that Bard citations would get more precise to help users find the accurate source of information. Bard will also get an “export” option to let users upload the generated text directly into Gmail or Google Docs.
Speaking of exporting and images, Google is collaborating with Adobe, a company that recently unveiled Adobe Firefly to let creators create original images based on text prompts. Users would soon be able to create high-quality images with simple text inputs such as, “Create a birthday invitation for my daughter who likes unicorns,” and the AI-powered tool would quickly create the image with relevant elements.
Google say Bard will get a Dark Mode — feature developers have asked for” to “make interacting with Bard a lot easier on your eyes.”
At the time of writing, Google Bard is still not fully open, and users in India need to join the waitlist to experience the ChatGPT and Microsoft Bing Chat rival.
Gmail’s smart reply aka ‘help me write’
Google already lets users compose smart emails on Gmail with autocomplete. Going forward, with the power of AI and Google paML2 technology, users can create emails in seconds.
The company is calling the feature “help me write” to eliminate the need for downloading ChatGPT-powered extensions. At the Google I/O 2023, Google showcased a new pencil icon on Gmail, and users can add some prompts. For instance, a user receives an email about cancelled flights.
Up on clicking the pencil icon, users can type, “Ask for a full refund,” and a smart-reply will be composed. Google suggests that the reply is just for reference and users can improve or tweak the text to suit their style. If users are unhappy, there are options such as “recreate” and “elaborate.”
