Google has updated Bard with a number of features, including the ability to double-check the responses provided by Bard by using Google Search. Google also has extensions for Gmail, Docs, Drive, Maps, YouTube, and Google Flights and Hotels for Google Bard. Bard has expanded Lens integration in 40 new languages and Bard upgraded its PaLM2 model to make it more capable, the company announced.
Google updated the Google it button within Bard to allow users to “more easily double-check its answers,” Google said. This improvement works in English results only, right now, but said this “taps into work by Google Research and Google DeepMind.”
When you Google the answer in Bard by clicking on the “G” icon, Bard will read the response and evaluate whether there is content across the web to substantiate it. When a statement provided by Bard can be evaluated, you would be able to click the highlighted phrases and learn more about supporting or contradicting information found by Search.
Google said the links provided in this feature are content found by Google Search and do not imply these sources informed Bard’s initial response.
