Google recently announced the availability of its AI chatbot, Bard, in more than 180 countries. The Google has also introduced new features to make the user experience even better. Bard was introduced earlier this year as a competitor to ChatGPT, which has been gaining attention for its impressive ability to provide human-like responses to prompts. Since its launch, Bard has captured the interest of tech enthusiasts, leading to comparisons with ChatGPT.
Google’s AI chatbot Bard surpasses ChatGPT with built-in internet access
Google’s AI chatbot, Bard, has an advantage over ChatGPT because it has access to the internet by default. ChatGPT needs web-browsing features to access the internet. Bard is trained on a massive dataset of text and code that includes information from the internet, making it capable of answering questions in a detailed and informative manner. Bard can show you the top news of the hour and retrieve information from the internet. However, we should note that Bard is still in the experimental phase and may display inaccurate or offensive information that does not reflect Google’s views. There is a warning message right under the text input box to alert users of this potential issue.
Google’s AI chatbot Bard to be integrated into more Google apps and services for smartphone users
Currently, ChatGPT does not have a mobile version, which can be a significant disadvantage for users who prefer using their smartphones. Although some people have been using ChatGPT on their phone browsers, having a dedicated application would be more convenient. On the other hand, Google Bard is not yet available on smartphones, but the company has announced plans to integrate the chatbot into more Google apps and services. This means that smartphone users will soon be able to access Bard through these Google platforms.
Bard’s new feature allows users to use images as prompts
Although ChatGPT is known for generating detailed text responses, it has limitations when it comes to displaying images. This may be because OpenAI has other tools like Dall-E that can generate images. However, Google Bard has the ability to include images in its text responses. While Google demonstrated this capability during the I/O event, we found that it did not display any images in response to prompts like ‘best places to visit in Rajasthan’. It’s possible that this feature is still being rolled out and will become available gradually.
Google Bard introduces plugins for enhanced functionality
Google has announced that Bard will come with several plugins, including Walmart, Spotify, Uber Eats, Adobe Firefly, and other Google apps. It’s worth noting that in March of this year, OpenAI also introduced plugins for ChatGPT. However, ChatGPT’s plugins are only available to users who subscribe to ChatGPT Plus, which is a premium service that costs $20 per month.
Bard’s New Image Recognition Feature Makes AI Chatbots More Accessible
Bard has introduced a unique and impressive feature that sets it apart from other AI chatbots. Users can now use images as prompts or scan images through Google Lens to ask Bard for help. This means that if a user is struggling with a crafting project and doesn’t know how to proceed, they can take a picture of the materials and ask Bard for ideas. The chatbot will provide instant suggestions. This new feature is a significant step forward in making AI chatbots more accessible and user-friendly.
Google’s AI chatbot Bard offers voice prompts
Unlike ChatGPT, which currently lacks the ability to respond to voice and image prompts, Google’s AI chatbot Bard is offering these features to its users. Using voice commands can be a convenient way to get responses while multitasking, and Bard’s integration of this technology is groundbreaking in the world of AI chatbots. This could be the first time that voice prompts are being used on an AI chatbot, giving Bard an edge over its competitors, including ChatGPT.
Share Google Bard Results Easily with Export Functionality
Google Bard now offers a new feature that allows users to share their chat results easily with friends and coworkers. When users receive a response from Bard, they will see like, dislike, and share buttons underneath. Clicking on the share button will give them the option to Export To Docs or Drafts in Gmail. These export functions will make it easy to compose emails and share results hassle-free. While ChatGPT has several extensions for similar features, Bard comes with export functionality by default, making it a convenient and efficient way to share results.
Google Bard’s “Search Related Topics” feature enhances information validation
Google Bard offers users more control over the accuracy of information by providing a “Search Related Topics” feature. With every response, users can like, dislike, and share the information, and also search for related topics. By clicking on the Google icon, a box with relevant search terms appears, and clicking on these topics leads to another page displaying search results in the usual way. ChatGPT does not have a similar mechanism to provide live search results at this time. This feature gives Bard users the ability to validate information and access additional relevant data with ease.
Google Bard to be integrated with Gmail, revolutionizing email interactions
Google Bard’s biggest advantage is its integration with Gmail, a widely used email service with over 2 billion users. With this integration, Google Bard can redefine email interactions by offering AI chatbot assistance directly in the email platform. This feature can be especially useful for professional interactions, such as writing proposals or sending invitations. With Google Bard integrated into Gmail, users can expect quick and convenient assistance in drafting emails.
