Bard is a new generative AI technology from Google that is being integrated into Google Assistant. It is still under development, but we have our first look at what it will look like and how it will work.

According to Twitter, the Assistant with Bard will soon be accessible on smartphones and smart speakers. This AI-powered assistant will be capable of comprehending and answering natural language queries and generating various creative text formats such as poems, code, scripts, musical compositions, emails, letters, and more.

One of the most interesting features of Assistant with Bard is the ability to ask questions related to screenshots. This could be incredibly helpful for research or understanding complex visuals.

Assistant with Bard can also switch back to the Classic Assistant. This flexibility ensures that everyone can find the experience that works best for them.

You should know these features are still under development and may change before they’re officially released. Still, it is exciting to glimpse what’s to come, and I’m eager to see how Assistant with Bard evolves in the future.

In addition to the features mentioned above, Assistant with Bard is also expected to be able to:

  • Set alarms and timers
  • Play music and podcasts
  • Control smart home devices
  • Get directions and traffic updates
  • Make calls and send texts

And much more

As an Android user, I am excited to see how Assistant with Bard will change how we interact with our devices.
