Bard Extensions Is Here!
Last Update: Sep 20, 2023
Hi WA Friends!
For those of you who use Google's AI, "Bard," today Google unveiled its Extensions capability.
Bard Extensions is a new way to interact and collaborate with Bard. It allows it to find and show you relevant information from the Google tools you use every day — like Gmail, Docs, Drive, Google Maps, YouTube, and Google Flights and Hotels — even when the information you need is across multiple apps and services.
Bard Extensions is currently in English, but Google is working to make it available in other languages in the future.
Here are some examples of how you can use Bard Extensions:
- Writing a document in Google Docs: Ask Bard to find relevant information from your Gmail inbox or Google Drive, or to summarize a research paper.
- Planning a trip in Google Maps: Ask Bard to find YouTube videos about the places you're visiting, or to translate the signs you'll see.
- Shopping for a product on Google: Ask Bard to compare prices from different retailers, or to read reviews from other customers.
- Working on a project with a team: Ask Bard to brainstorm ideas, or to help you manage your team's tasks.
Bard Extensions is still under development, but it has the potential to be a powerful tool for helping you get more done with the Google tools you use every day.
Get More Done With Apps - All In One Place
Bard can now respond with real-time info from Google Maps, Flights, Hotels, and YouTube, so you can get more done in one place.
Bard Helps You Automatically
To connect you with useful content, Bard may share parts of your conversations and other relevant info, like your location, with other services. These services may use that info for their improvement, even if you later delete your Bard activity. You can turn extensions off anytime on the Extensions page.
How Google Respects Your Privacy
Bard can only access your personal content from Google Workspace with your permission. It's not used to show you ads, improve Bard, or seen by human reviewers.
Evaluate Bard's Statements With Google Search
The new Google button helps you assess Bard's statements by using Google Search to find content that's likely similar or different.
Well, that's a basic summary of what you can do with Bard Extensions. Tell me what you think in the comments, AND ...
