Story Highlights

  • Google has announced a new update for its AI chatbot Bard.
  • Google Bard can now watch and summarize YouTube videos.
  • Google Bard is getting new updates every now and then.

Google has announced a new update for its AI chatbot, Bard, that will let users ask the AI chatbot questions about YouTube videos and get answers related to the content of the video.

“We’re taking the first steps in Bard’s ability to understand YouTube videos,” Google wrote on Bard’s update page.

“For example, if you’re looking for videos on how to make olive oil cake, you can now also ask how many eggs the recipe in the first video requires,” it explained.

The company said it expanded “the YouTube Extension to understand some video content so you can have a richer conversation with Bard about it”.

Prior to this latest update, the YouTube Extension for Bard could only be used to find specific videos.

The new update comes just two weeks after YouTube began experimenting with new generative AI capabilities, such as an AI conversational tool that answers queries about YouTube’s content and a new feature that summarises topics in a video’s comments.

Meanwhile, Google has announced to make Bard available for teens in most countries with some guardrails in place.

“Teens in those countries who meet the minimum age requirement to manage their own Google Account will be able to access Bard in English, with more languages to come over time,” said Tulsee Doshi, Head of Product, Responsible AI at Google.

Before launching to teens, the tech giant consulted with child safety and development experts to help shape its content policies and an experience that prioritises safety.

In other news about Bard, the AI chatbot is now available in multiple Indian languages. In fact, if you search for Bard on Google, you may see a search result in Hindi. Back in July, Google announced that it would update the AI chatbot with Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Gujarati, and Urdu. Several weeks back, the chatbot finally received multi-language support.

Google is pushing constant updates to Bard as it tries to stand out in the AI chatbot race, where not just OpenAI or Microsoft, but other players are also competing.
