Google expands Bard AI service to 40 new languages, 59 countries

Google rolls out measures to protect Play store users’ data

Google has announced the addition of 40 new languages, including Swahili, the first African language, as well as 59 new countries and territories, to Bard, their conversational AI service.

New features in the expansion allow users to better customize their experience, improve their creativity, and get more done.

With the extension, Bard is now available in the majority of the world’s countries and languages, including Swahili, Chinese, German, Spanish, Arabic, Hindi, and Spanish.

Users can now use Bard in their preferred language, with text-to-speech support available in eight languages.
Global accessibility

Speaking on the expansion and the global availability of the AI service, Head of Communications and Public Affairs, SSA, Google, Dorothy Ooko, said:

  • “We’re excited that this is Bard’s largest expansion to date – we see its global availability as a great democratizer of knowledge.
  • “That’s why we created Bard: to help you explore that curiosity, augment your imagination and ultimately get your ideas off the ground  not just by answering your questions, but by helping you build on them.”

New updates

As part of the expansion, new updates have been introduced to make the Bard experience more interactive and user-friendly.

The ‘Listen to Responses’ feature now provides an auditory dimension to Bard’s responses, making it particularly useful for gaining accurate pronunciation or understanding a script, with just a simple click on the sound icon.

Users can also now adjust Bard’s responses by changing the tone and style of its responses to five different options: simple, long, short, professional or casual, offering a tailored interaction to match individual needs.

While this feature has been initially launched in English, plans are underway to extend it to other languages, broadening its accessibility to users around the globe.

Four additional features were also introduced to help users get more done. Users can now pin and rename their conversations with Bard, making it easier to revisit conversations that contain important information or ideas later.

Through the export code to more places feature, users can now export Python code to Replit, in addition to Google Colab, making it easier for users to share their code with others or use it in other projects.

Users will also be able to share responses with friends using shareable links, making it easier to collaborate on projects or get feedback on ideas.

Also launched is the feature allowing users to upload images with prompts to Bard.

Bard seeks to combine the breadth of the world’s knowledge with the power, intelligence and creativity of Google’s large language models.

It draws on information from the web to provide responses. As an experimental technology, Bard may occasionally make inaccurate statements in response to user prompts.

So if a response from Bard is inaccurate or unsafe, if one experiences an issue, or just wants to provide feedback, there’s an easy way to do that.
