Alphabet has announced that they are expanding their Bard AI chatbot to be available in more than 40 languages, making the service accessible to users worldwide. This news was shared by Jack Krawczyk, the product lead for Bard, in a recent blog post.
One of the new features introduced is the option for users to listen to Bard’s responses instead of just reading them. This can be particularly beneficial for those who want to hear the correct pronunciation of a word or listen to a poem or script.
Another exciting addition is the ability to use images in prompts. Users can now upload images and Bard will analyze them to provide more information or help come up with a caption.
Alphabet has also introduced a tool that allows users to change the style of Bard’s responses. You can choose from options like simple, long, short, professional, or casual responses. For instance, if you need assistance in writing a marketplace listing for a vintage armchair, you can ask Bard for help and then shorten the response using the drop-down menu. This feature is currently available in English and will be expanded to other languages soon.
Additionally, Bard now offers a convenient way to revisit previous prompts by allowing users to pin and rename conversations. This feature is accessible in over 40 languages. Furthermore, web links to conversations have been added, enabling easier sharing of creations and ideas with others.
Lastly, the latest version of Bard simplifies the process of exporting computer code written by Bard in Python to development tools like Replit and Google Colab.
Alphabet continues to enhance the capabilities of its chatbot, providing users with an even more interactive and versatile experience.
