What is Bard?

Bard is Google’s experimental, conversational, AI chat service. It is meant to function similarly to ChatGPT, with the biggest difference being that Google’s service will pull its information from the web. unlike ChatGPT, which uses the GPT-3.5 language model (or GPT-4 for ChatGPT Plus), Bard uses Google’s PaLM2 language model. This newly updated LLM (large language model) makes Bard more accurate and useful than ever.

As of May 22, 2023, Google Bard no longer has a waitlist and is available in over 180 countries around the world. Here’s how to get access to Google Bard and use Google’s AI chatbot.Here’s how to get access to Google Bard and use Google’s AI chatbot.

How to Use Google Bard

Google Bard provides a simple interface with a chat window and a place to type your prompts, just like ChatGPT or Bing’s AI Chat. You can ask it questions or give it instructions. You can also tap the microphone button to speak your question or instruction rather than typing it. Everything you type or say to it is called a “prompt.”

Query Prompt Examples

  • Help me finish my art studio tagline: craft, create, and …
  • Outline my blog post about summer mocktail recipes
  • Draft a packing list for my weekend fishing and camping trip
  • I want to write a novel. How can I get started?

Edit your prompt

If you want to revise your prompt to Bard, you can edit it, and Bard will regenerate the response.

  1. To the right of your prompt, select Edit text .
  2. Edit your prompt.
  3. Select Update.

In the menu on the left side of the Google Bard page, you’ll find options for “Reset chat” to reset the Bard chat conversion, “Bard Activity” for controlling the saved Bard chatbot activity associated with your Google account, and a “FAQ” button that takes you to the Google Bard FAQ.

Google Bard lets you click a “View other drafts” option to see other possible responses to your prompt.

Other buttons let you give a thumbs up or thumbs down to a response—important feedback for Google. You can also get a new response (that’s the refresh button) or click “Google it” and get traditional search results for a topic.

Google Bard isn’t perfect and may have problems. Google shows a message saying, “Bard may display inaccurate or offensive information that doesn’t represent Google’s views.” Unlike Bing’s AI Chat, Bard does not clearly cite the web pages it gets data from.

Google Bard Options Explained

While the process to use Google Bard is easy enough, we are highlighting the most common options you should know about to fully leverage the AI bot. Let’s begin with the left sidebar:

Left navigation
  • Reset chat: This option clears up the entire current chat and starts a new one. Any of your current chat sessions are not saved when clearing. Also, you cannot start multiple chats with Bard, which is not the case with ChatGPT.
  • Bard Activity: While the sessions aren’t saved, your prompts are. Clicking this will open up a new window showcasing your Google Bard activity along with the option to turn it off and turn on auto-delete.
  • FAQ: As is obvious, this opens up a new page detailing all the frequently asked questions about Google Bard. Good for people wanting information about it in a punch.
  • Updates: Google constantly pushes out a variety of updates to its AI chatbot. This option stores changelogs for every update for users who want to keep track.
  • Help and Support: Opens up a dedicated Google Bard help page full of questions and answers along with a feedback center.

1. Edit Prompt: Clicking this button allows users to edit their previously sent message to the bot.

2. View other drafts: Expands and collapses the other drafts window where Bard houses its answer variations (three different answers) to the same query.

3. Regenerate Drafts: If a user is not satisfied with the initial answer, they can choose to click this button and have Bard regenerate the response.

4. Export Response: Allows users to quickly export the message onto Google Docs or as a draft in Gmail.

5. Google it button: Opens up a new tab wherein Bard searches Google for more information based on your query.

More button: Houses the copy and report buttons.

7. Microphone input: Allows one to use their voice to chat with Bard.
