How to Use Google Bard AI?
1. Ask Bard to Google It
You can ask more questions on the same subject based on the answer. Alternatively, you can click Google it and Bard will recommend relevant searches.
To conduct a Google search on that subject, click the link to that one. After that, share your thoughts on the answer. If you thought the response was helpful and liked it, please click the thumbs-up button.
If the response didn’t meet your needs or you didn’t think it was helpful, click the thumbs-down button. If you give it a negative rating, you’ll be prompted to provide a reason for your decision as well as any additional details. Once finished, select Submit.
2. Ask Bard to Modify Its Response
You can instruct the AI to change a response based on your query and Bard’s response. This is very useful if you ask Bard to produce specific content. Once your request has been submitted, scroll to the bottom of the response and select the “Modify response” button.
You can instruct Bard to change the response in this instance to make it longer, shorter, easier to understand, informal, or formal.
3. Keep Your Options Open: View Other Drafts
A variety of text drafts will be provided by the AI when you ask Bard to create content. Ask Bard to write a piece of content so you can try this.
Click the View Other drafts drop-down menu located at the upper right corner of the response. Three more iterations of the text are visible to you. To view it, click on the desired one. If not, select the Regenerate Drafts button to view three additional drafts.
4. Speak Your Request
To submit a question or request by voice, click the microphone icon and answer your query. If it’s your first time, you might need to grant permission for Bard to use your microphone. Once your spoken words are recorded, click the Submit icon.
This voice input feature enhances convenience and accessibility, allowing you to interact with Bard using spoken language, making the conversation more fluid and natural. It’s especially useful for those who prefer or require voice-based interactions.
5. Have Bard Read Its Response Aloud

6. Revise Your Question
??To obtain an alternate response by rephrasing your question, click the Edit text button adjacent to your initial query. Modify the text as needed, and then click the Update button. This feature enables you to refine your inquiry and access a different perspective or information, enhancing the flexibility of your interactions with Bard.
7. Get Local Information With Precise Location
Google uses your IP address to determine your general location by default. However, that isn’t always accurate. If you don’t mind sharing your exact location with Google, you can tell Bard to use your location to get advice or recommendations on local businesses, restaurants, shops, and landmarks.
Click Update location after selecting the city from the list at the bottom of the left sidebar to configure this. To allow Bard to access your location, click Allow.
Click Use precise location in the About this location window. Your device’s IP address replaces your IP address in the link under the location. Bard can now be used to find out about local events and locations.
8. Upload Images to Bard
In addition to typing a text query, you can use Bard to find information by uploading a picture or other image. To accomplish this, choose the image by clicking the Upload file button located to the left of the prompt.
The file type may be WebP, PNG, or JPG. Once the image has been uploaded, click Submit after typing a request or question based on the information you would like Bard to provide about the image.
9. Share or Export a Response
If you want to share your response elsewhere submit your request and then select the three-dot icon that appears next to the answer. Click Copy to copy the response to an external program or document from the pop-up menu. Other users cannot see your conversations by default. But if you’d like, you can make the response publicly available.
Choose Share after clicking the Share & export button. When you select the “Create public link” button, the discussion is shared publicly online for anyone to view. The link can also be shared on Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook. If you want to use the response to create a document, you can send it to Google Docs.
Choose Export to Docs when you click the Share & export button. To view the text as an editable Google Docs document, click the Open Docs link. Click the Share & export button in Gmail and choose Draft to export a response as an email. Select the “Open Gmail” option. After that, the text shows up in Gmail so you can edit it.
10. Manage Your Conversations
You can now control every conversation you have. To view all of your previous chats, select Show More from the sidebar. To view a particular one and, if you’d like, resume the conversation where you left off, select it. You can pin, rename, or delete a specific chat by clicking its three-dot icon.
