July kicked in with new Google Bard updates! Yesterday Google released a bunch of new features for their Bard AI experiment, packed with great functionality. Let’s put them to test!
Google Bard Updates (July 13th, 2023)
1. Bard is available in new places and languages
Google Bard is now available in over 40 new languages including Arabic, Chinese (Simplified/Traditional), German, Hindi, Spanish, and more. They have also expanded access to more places, including all 27 countries in the European Union (EU) and Brazil.
I did a quick test in Spanish and works like a charm.
2. Google Lens in Bard
Images are a fundamental part of how we put our imaginations to work. Now you can upload images alongside text in your conversations with Bard, allowing you to boost your imagination and creativity in completely new ways. To make this happen, they brought the power of Google Lens into Bard, starting with English.
3. Bard can read responses out loud
Bard added text-to-speech capabilities to Bard in over 40 languages, including Hindi, Spanish, and US English. Now you can listen to responses and see what it helps you imagine and create!
4. Pinned & Recent Threads
Bard added the ability to pin conversations, rename them, and have multiple conversations going at once. You can now pick up where you left off with your past Bard conversations and organize them according to your needs. Just as you can do with ChatGPT.
5. Share your Bard conversations with others
It is now easier to share part or all of your Bard chat with others. Shareable links make seeing your chat and any sources just a click away so others can seamlessly view what you created with Bard.
Just click on the Share button and you get a link, or Export to Google Docs.
6. Modify Bard’s responses
There are five new options to help you modify Bard’s responses. Just tap to make the response simpler, longer, shorter, more professional, or more casual.
7. Export Python code to Replit
To Streamline your workflow and continue your programming tasks by moving Bard interactions into Replit, you can now export Python code to Replit, in addition to Google Colab.
