The Google Bard chatbot has officially launched in Ukraine
Google announced the official launch in Ukraine of its AI-powered chatbot Google Bard. This happened as part of a large-scale expansion of the availability of this tool for most countries of the world and in more than 40 languages, which now also includes Ukrainian.
Along with the Bard extension, Google has added new updates to the chatbot to better match the search results to the needs of users, including the artificial intelligence that can now:
- Give voice feedback: Sometimes hearing something out loud can help you approach your idea in a different way. So now users can hear back from Bard. This is especially useful if you want to hear the correct pronunciation of a word or listen to a poem or script. To do this, you now need to select the sound icon after entering a question to hear the answers from the Bard. This feature is now available in over 40 languages.
- Quickly customize Bard responses: Users can now change the tone and style of Bard responses to five different options: simple, long, short, professional, or casual. For example, you can ask Bard to help you compile a list of vintage chair deals on the market, then narrow down the answer with a drop-down list. This feature is available in English and will soon be available in other languages.
Google is also launching four new Bard productivity features today:
- Pinning and renaming conversations: Sometimes users want to be able to go back to questions, so Google has added new ways to pin and rename your conversations with Bard. Now when you start a conversation, you’ll see options to pin, rename, and select recent conversations in the sidebar. For example, if you ask Bard to help you compare outdoor sports activities in the summer, you can review these tips later.
- More opportunities to export code: Google notes that interest in using Bard for programming continues. So today they added a new feature that allows you to export Python code to Replit (in addition to Google Colab).
- Ability to share responses with friends: Google has also made it easy to share part or all of a Bard chat with a user’s contacts. Share your ideas and creations with others using shareable links.
- Using images in queries: Back at I/O, Google announced that they will add Google Lens capabilities to Bard. If a user needs more information about an image or needs inspiration to write text on the image, such as a thank you for a gift, they can now upload an image along with the request and Bard will analyze the photo to help. This feature is now available in English and will be expanded to other languages soon.
