Google Bard has received a fresh lease of life with Google apps and services integration. The Generative AI platform also includes enhancements such as double-checking Bard’s responses and build of shared conversations. Moreover, Google Bard can now scrap content from YouTube and Gmail. You will be able to easily locate a particular e-mail.

The main advantage of Google Bard is its ability to customize responses based on your requirements. You can request Bard to start a trip-planning document or draft your online marketplace listing. You can also ask Bard to provide explanation about a particular topic for your kids. Google Bard has integrated Google apps and services for tailored responses.

Google has announced the launch of Bard Extensions in English, which is a new way to interact and collaborate with Bard. You can fetch information from Gmail, Docs, Drive, Google Maps, Google Flights, Google Hotels, and YouTube. For instance, if you would like to fetch an e-mail containing a particular photo, Bard can drill deep into your Gmail inbox and provide adequate information. The chatbot displays the titles and also the links to the relevant emails. We tested this functionality and it worked perfectly. You can also ask Bard to locate resume titled August 2023 from My Drive and summarize it to a short paragraph personal statement.

Google revealed that they are committed to protect your personal information. The content generated from Gmail, Docs, and Drive will not be visible to human reviewers. The company will not use the AI chatbot to display ads or to train the Bard model. You can deactivate extensions when you want.
