In a recent announcement, the global tech juggernaut Google has revealed a series of new features for its cutting-edge generative AI chatbot, Bard. The upgrades include the implementation of fact-checking capabilities and the integration of personalized data analysis from users’ Google accounts.
Google made this momentous revelation in an official statement provided on Wednesday, offering users a comprehensive overview of the freshly introduced functionalities.
Notably, Google highlighted that Bard AI chatbot’s capabilities have transcended its initial role of fetching information from the internet. Now, it possesses the capability to delve into users’ Gmail, Documents, and Drive to assist in the retrieval of pertinent information.
Moreover, these innovative enhancements empower Bard users to succinctly summarize email content and efficiently extract crucial data stored within their Google Drive.
Bard’s expanded repertoire also encompasses seamless integration with Google Maps, YouTube, and Google’s flight and hotel services, providing users with a more holistic digital experience.
Among the notable features touted in the announcement, Google emphasized Bard’s remarkable ability to facilitate collaborative efforts in creative projects, allowing users to initiate conversations in one language and smoothly transition to over 40 other languages and regions.
Additionally, the new features offer invaluable assistance for in-depth coding inquiries and the exploration of diverse topics from multiple perspectives, all with an emphasis on enhanced quality and precision.
It’s worth recalling that Google introduced Bard on February 6, 2023, positioning it as a formidable rival to ChatGPT, a chatbot backed by tech giant Microsoft (MSFT.O).
