Google announced today Bard’s biggest expansion to date. It’s now available in most of the world, and in the most widely spoken languages. From today Bard includes as well new features to help users better customize their experience, boost their creativity and get more done.

All the features introduced today aim to make of Bard, not only an AI tool for easily getting the information one is searching for, but also a good partner for brainstorm.

The company is commited to keep on using their AI Principles as a guide, incorporate user feedback, and take steps to protect people’s privacy and data whenever they bring Bard to more regions and languages over time.
Two new features for more customized and accurate responses
The new features that enables Barde tailoring more accurately its answers to the users’ prompts are:
1.- Listen to Bard responses just with a click on the sound icon: Sometimes hearing something out loud can help one approach one’s idea in a different way. That’s why, starting today, users can listen to Bard’s responses.
This is especially helpful if you want to hear the correct pronunciation of a word or listen to a poem or script. Simply enter a prompt and select the sound icon to hear Bard’s answers. This feature is now live in over 40 languages.
2.- Easily adjust Bard’s responses: You can now change the tone and style of Bard’s responses to five different options: simple, long, short, professional or casual.
For example, you can ask Bard to help you write a marketplace listing for a vintage armchair, and then shorten the response using the drop-down. This feature is live in English and Google expand to new languages soon.
Four new features for boosting user’s productivity, including the use of images in prompts
Now Bard can help the users’ work in four new ways:
1.- Use images in your prompts: Images are a big part of how we put our imaginations to work. At I/OGoogle announced that the capabilities of Google Lens would be brought into Bard.
Whether searching formore information about an image or one just need help coming up with a caption, users can now upload images with prompts and Bard will analyze the photo to help. This feature is now live in English, and G oogle will expand it to new languages soon.
2.- Pin and rename conversations: Users wanted to be able to revisit prompts, so Google is adding new ways to pin and rename each user’s conversations with Bard.
Now when one start a conversation, will see options to pin, rename and pick up recent conversations in the sidebar.
For example, if the user asks Bard help to compare outdoor sports for the summer, the user can revisit the tips later. This feature is now live in over 40 languages.
3.- Export code to more places: As there is continued interest in using Bard for coding tasks, today Google is adding a new feature that allows teh user to export Python code to Replit, in addition to Google Colab. This feature is now live in over 40 languages.
