Google Bard now available in India. Here's how to use it

Search giant Google has opened up access to its ChatGPT rival chatbot Bard to more than 180 countries, while also removing a waitlist that was required for access. Google has also added a number of new features to Bard in a bid to take control of the AI chatbot landscape, currently dominated by OpenAI's ChatGPT.

Commenting on the removal of the waitlist and the opening of Bard in a blog post, Google said, "As we continue to make additional improvements and introduce new features, we want to get Bard into more people’s hands so they can try it out and share their feedback with us. So today we’re removing the waitlist and opening up Bard to over 180 countries and territories — with more coming soon."

"As we’ve said from the beginning, large language models are still a nascent technology with known limitations. So as we further expand, we’ll continue to maintain our high standards for quality and local nuances while also ensuring we adhere to our AI Principles" the company added

Google has also announced that Bard will be available in Japanese and Korean, while the company is preparing to add support for 40 more languages soon. Bard is now powered by Google's latest large language model (LLM), PaLM 2. The switch to the PaLM2 language model has enabled recent improvements in Bard, including coding capabilities, advanced math and reasoning skills, and more.

Notably, Bard was initially only available to users in the US and UK via a waitlist. The chatbot is now available in more than 180 countries and territories, and Google promises to add support for more countries soon. However, Bard is still in the beta stage and, like other generative AI-based chatbots, is prone to making mistakes and 'hallucinating'.
