Google brings its AI chatbot Bard into its inner circle, opening door to Gmail, Maps, YouTube

  • Google is expanding the capabilities of its artificially intelligent chatbot, Bard, to integrate with Gmail, Maps, YouTube, Google Flights, and Google Drive. The chatbot will be able to mine information from users' Gmail accounts, provide directions from Maps, find helpful videos on YouTube, and extract travel information from Google Flights and documents from Google Drive. Google promises to protect users' privacy by ensuring human reviewers cannot see sensitive information and that the data will not be used to sell tailored ads.
  • The expansion of Bard is part of an escalating AI battle between Google, OpenAI, and Microsoft. Google's decision to enhance its chatbot's capabilities comes amid a high-profile antitrust trial. The U.S. Justice Department alleges that Google has abused its power to stifle competition and innovation. Google contends that it dominates search due to its algorithms producing the best results and faces intense competition with the rise of AI.
  • With Bard's access to personal information and popular services, Google aims to make them even more helpful and encourage more users to rely on them. For example, Bard can assist users in planning a group trip by providing suitable dates, flight and hotel options, directions, and informative videos. Through this expansion, Google aims to enhance its digital family's capabilities while protecting its users' privacy.
