With Bard, Google has been working on a new version of its Assistant. With Bard, you can generate text, translate languages, write creative content, and get informative answers to your questions.
Bard will be integrated with Google Assistant for Android phones last year. You will be able to use Bard to do everything that you can do with Google Assistant now, plus a whole lot more. Developer Dylan Roussel has provided a glimpse into Assistant with Bard’s interface, though an official release date is unknown.
Bard’s setup screen explains how it works and what data it accesses. For a more personalized experience, you can even connect your Google apps, similar to extensions in the current Bard web app.
When the setup is complete, you can tap the arrow icon on the popup and you’ll be able to type your questions and prompts.
Alternatively, you can open Assistant on top of any app, tap “Add this screen,” and ask questions directly related to what you’re seeing. For seamless access, the familiar “Hey Google” phrase still works.
Those who prefer the classic Assistant experience can easily switch back. The Bard interface also provides extensions that allow it to access external data sources, enhancing its capabilities for tech enthusiasts.
The Google Assistant with Bard adds text-based capabilities to your existing voice assistant. The voice assistant is still under development, but we now know that it can handle more complex tasks and interactions.
