Google Bard is receiving a new update that enriches the answers it gives to users.
Although it still has some limits, you can now search for images in the Google search engine to integrate them into the answers you give to your queries, whether you ask for them directly or consider them relevant to complete the information.
Bard uses Google image search to give you answers
As we can see in the report of their latest updates, google bard now embeds images in responses. All the images that you show in your answers are extracted by using Google search.
Following this dynamic, Bard may show you images as part of the answers to illustrate a point, or to give you visuals as part of the explanation of a concept. Or you may directly ask them to include images as part of the responses.
For example, if you ask him to make a list of the most popular dog breeds in the world, you will see that he not only creates the list but also adds an image of each of them. Each of the images has its corresponding credit and link so that the user knows what the source is.
Or if you ask it to suggest a series of places to visit during your vacation, it will show you images as it describes the places.
Of course, we won’t see images every time we query Bard, as they will only be displayed when their integration is relevant and enriches the response.
How to ask Bard to show images in your responses
On the other hand, you can also ask Bard to include images to answer your questions. For example, you can ask him to create a recipe for you with certain ingredients, and to include photos.
In that case, you will see that it will detail the recipe, and it will show you some images as it answers your query. She could show you photos of each of the ingredients, or a picture of the dish you’ll create with the suggested recipe. It is a more practical and visual way to get a recipe.
Or you could be more specific and tell Bard to show you photos of a certain item, or location. For example, to show you photos of Paris. In this case, it will show you a series of images, without text, and with the corresponding link.
Please note that this new dynamic will only apply to responses in English. And this is just one of the first updates that Bard receives to integrate images, since we know that the Google team is preparing many more new features so that images become one of the protagonists of its conversational AI.
