Bard is currently available as a web app for users in the U.S. and the U.K., but Google has plans to bring it to Pixel devices in the future. According to a report from 9to5Google, the company will sons bring Bard to Android either baked into search or as a standalone service.
This will allow users to access Bard's capabilities with voice commands.
For example, you could ask Bard to write a birthday message for your friend, suggest some recipes for dinner or generate a catchy slogan for your business. Bard will then provide you with multiple drafts of its response, which you can choose from or ask for alternatives. You can also ask follow-up questions or edit the response as you like.
Google reportedly thinks bringing Bard to Pixel devices will help to boost the popularity of the chatbot. Furthermore, the company believes it will also help in the streamlining of AI and bring the technology into the daily lives of users.
Bard Has Been on a Unique Journey
Google´s recently launched Bard-Chatbot has raised some controversy among content creators, who claim that the chatbot does not properly cite or link to the sources of its information. Bard is now available in limited preview for users in the United States.
It is a natural language processor (NLP) generative AI similar to ChatGPT. However, ChatGPT is more mature and has already been upgraded several times, currently running on the GPT-3.5 AI model from OpenAI.
Google was taken by surprise by the launch of Bing Chat and rushed to announce Bard. That decision did not sit well with employees and the situation worsened when Bard mostly failed during its introduction demo.
CEO Sundar Pichai was also seemingly making strange decisions, such as forcing employees to test Bard for hours each day. In an interview, the CEO admits Bard is a prototype and will get better with time. It is clear Google's hand was forced and Pichai now suggests the company would prefer a slower approach to AI development.
Tip of the day: To prevent attackers from capturing your password, Secure Sign-in asks the user to perform a physical action that activates the sign-in screen. In some cases, this is a dedicated “Windows Security” button, but the most common case in Windows is the Ctrl+Alt Del hotkey. In our tutorial, we show you how to activate this feature.
