Google launches new features for its AI tool

Google has launched new features for Bard, to make it more accessible in Arabic and other languages globally.

The tool is designed to enable people to use their creative potential by developing new ideas, learn about the world by exploring topics from different perspectives and boost productivity by simplifying dense content. 

Arabic speaking users can upload images with Google Lens, get search images in responses, and modify Bard’s responses. 

The AI tool is powered by Google’s language model, ‘PaLM2’, has been further developed based on users’ feedback to become more intuitive, and respond with greater quality and accuracy in all languages.

With the updated model, its making its existing english language features available to more than 40 new languages.

It will also launch new capabilities in English and soon to other languages. 

The list of features include: Use images in prompts to bring the capabilities of Google Lens, a product that recognises and analyses objects, texts and images, into Bard so people can use images in prompts; Modify responses, changing the tone and style of Bard’s responses to five options including simple, long, short, professional or casual. 

“We are delighted by the positive feedback we have received from Arabic speakers using Bard. We are committed to continuously improving Bard and bringing more capabilities to Arabic speakers in the future.” a quote generated by Bard.
