Google has recently announced a new integration of its Bard AI chatbot into Google Assistant during its highly anticipated Made by Google event. This new feature aims to combine Bard’s “generative reasoning” with Assistant’s “personalized help” to provide users with more contextually aware responses.
With Assistant powered by Bard, Google hopes to offer a more personalized helper compared to other smartphone assistants such as Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri. This advanced tool will be able to assist users with various tasks including planning trips, searching through emails, creating grocery lists, and sending messages.
What sets Assistant with Bard apart is that users can interact with it through text, voice, or images, enabling more dynamic and versatile communication. Additionally, this integration provides more conversational and contextual information compared to the standard Google Assistant.
However, it is important to note that this feature is still in its early developmental stages and will be initially available only to early testers, particularly for users of Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. The company plans to expand availability to Android and iOS users in the future.
Rumors about Assistant with Bard had been circulating during the summer, causing excitement among tech enthusiasts. During the event, Google’s VP of Assistant / Bard, Sissie Hsiao, demonstrated the feature’s capabilities, such as suggesting a hiking trail and even helping write a social caption for a picture of a dog.
As for the feature’s availability, Google plans to provide more updates in the coming months. This integration between Bard and Google Assistant has the potential to revolutionize the way users interact with their smartphones, making tasks more efficient and personalized. Stay tuned for further developments in this exciting field of AI technology.
