Google’s Bard AI is now available across Europe, in more than 40 languages in total

Google’s initial launch of Bard, its very own “AI” chatbot based on large language models, felt very much like an improvised response to all the traction that ChatGPT was getting in the media – complete with Google I/O becoming basically a ridiculous attempt to steal back some of the spotlight

Well, a few months have passed, and Bard is now maturing. Slowly, but surely, more features are being added, which should make it more useful than it’s ever been (not that that’s saying much, but still). The company today unveiled Bard’s “July update” (thus strongly implying it will get monthly updates from now on), but before we get into what’s new we should talk about availability.

Bard is now finally accessible across Europe, and it’s also live in Brazil. Thus, you can use it in over 230 countries and territories worldwide, a full list of which can be found here. But perhaps that’s not the most impressive feat. The fact that you can talk to Bard in more than 40 languages could be. The list is on the same page as the countries.

In terms of new features, Bard now lets you listen to its responses, and easily adjust them. You get five different tone and style options to do so: simple, long, short, professional, casual. This feature is currently live in English and will expand to new languages soon.

You can also pin and rename conversations, export Python code to Replit, and use images in your prompts (live in English for now). Sharing part or all of a conversation with Bard is easier too, with shareable links.
