Google has announced the long-awaited mass release of its Bard artificial intelligence chatbot. From today it is available in 180 countries for all users – no more waiting lists and restrictions. However, Bard is still in the testing phase, the company said.

Until now, the chatbot was only available in English, but it now supports Japanese and Korean languages. Google plans to add support for 40 more languages ​​in the near future. Bard will not only understand questions in different languages, but also answer them.

In addition, Bard knows 20 programming languages. It is also capable of explaining the meaning of a particular line of code and detecting errors in the code, explaining and correcting them.

“As we’ve said from the beginning, large language models are still a nascent technology with some limitations. Therefore, as we continue to expand them, we will maintain high standards of quality and local nuances, as well as monitor adherence to our AI principles,” Google said in a press release.

The company announced that Bard will be getting new features soon. The chatbot will become more descriptive in its responses. You can ask him, for example, “What are the must-see attractions in New Orleans?” and besides text it will provide images.

What’s more, users can include photos in requests to Bard and the chatbot will edit them. To implement this feature, Google added Lens directly to Bard. For example, you can upload a photo of your dogs and ask the chatbot to “write a funny caption”. Using Google Lens, it will analyze the photo, identify the breed of dog and come up with some creative captions.

Google also announced a number of other innovations for Bard. Starting next week, citations will become more accurate. If Bard provides a block of code or cites other content, you can simply click on the abstract and it will highlight the borrowed parts of the answer and provide a link to the source.

Bard will have a dark theme – another feature that developers have requested, which Google says will help make interacting with the chatbot much easier on users’ eyes.

Last but not least, Bard will offer an “Export” button: according to Google, developers like the export feature in Colab, so the chatbot will soon get the ability to export and run code using Replit, starting with the Python language .

And since people often ask Bard to help them write emails and documents, Google is rolling out two more export features to make it easier to bring the chatbot’s responses right into Gmail and Docs. For example, you could ask Bard to write an email invitation to a party, briefly describing dress code requirements or suggestions on what to bring. The AI-written email will end up in Drafts in Gmail, where you can make final edits before sending it.

In the future, Google will add new Bard features from apps and services, including Docs, Drive, Gmail, Maps, and more. At the same time, the developers note that users will be able to control their privacy settings by deciding how to use these tools and extensions.

Bard will be able to connect to any services from the Internet using extensions from external partners. In the coming months, the chatbot will integrate Adobe Firefly, a family of generative AI models that will allow quick and easy transformation of creative ideas into images for subsequent editing by users or addition to projects in Adobe Express. That is, you can ask Bard to draw anything, and with the help of AI from Adobe, it will quickly do so.
