Earlier this year in February, Google introduced Bard, and initial impressions suggested a hasty launch. The AI chatbot, positioned as a contender against ChatGPT and Microsoft’s Bing, faced criticism for factual inaccuracies in its demo video, drawing attention from the online community. Nevertheless, as time passed, Bard underwent significant enhancements, showcasing an improved accuracy in responses and introducing several new features.
A notable addition to Bard’s capabilities is its capacity to comprehend YouTube video content. Bard has the ability to “watch” and analyze YouTube videos, enabling it to extract information on your behalf. This functionality holds promise for diverse applications, ranging from research endeavors and discovering recipes to summarizing lengthy videos for those with time constraints.
Let Google’s Bard AI Condense Videos for Your Convenience
In a recent update, the company has revealed its initial efforts to enhance Bard’s capacity to comprehend the YouTube videos that viewers engage with.
The company said, “We’re taking the first steps in Bard’s ability to understand YouTube videos. 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. We’ve heard you want deeper engagement with YouTube videos. So, we’re expanding the YouTube Extension to understand some video content so you can have a richer conversation with Bard about it.”
Google cited user feedback expressing a desire for a deeper engagement with YouTube videos as the driving force behind this initiative. The integration of Google Bard with YouTube was initially announced in September of this year. However, during that period, the YouTube extension was limited to certain videos, according to reports. The most recent update has increased Bard’s capacity to analyze different types of videos.
To Enable and Use it follow the steps below –
- Open Google Bard and log into your account.
- Once you are on to the Bard dashboard, click on the extension icon from the top right corner of the screen.
- When you’ve navigated to the extensions page, enable the ones you want to use, such as the YouTube extension.
Significantly, according to a report by The Verge, the feature is currently accessible as an opt-in experience exclusively. Therefore, it may require some time before it becomes accessible to all users.
Initiating this feature is straightforward—just copy the link to a YouTube video and paste it into Bard, accompanied by a detailed prompt outlining the specific information you seek from the video. Bard will then strive to locate and provide the requested information if it is present in the video.
Users can now seamlessly integrate Bard with YouTube by enabling the extension through a simple process. Bard’s ongoing evolution and its ability to distill information from videos represent a valuable tool with applications across diverse fields. This promises convenience and efficiency, particularly for users seeking a more in-depth interaction with multimedia content.
