More concise summaries

  • What: We’ve updated Bard with better summarization capabilities by incorporating advances we’ve developed in our large language models.
  • Why: We’re making Bard better at summarizing information, which is especially helpful when you want to get the gist of a topic quickly. Bard won’t always get it right, but will keep improving with your feedback.

Making sources more useful

  • What: Bard can now help you identify which parts of a response match a source. For the responses with sources, you’ll see numbers alongside the response. By clicking on the numbers you will now be able to identify the section of the text that matches the source and easily navigate to it.
  • Why: We want to make it easier for you to understand which parts of a response match a source and provide you with source links in line with the text.

Who will benefit from these features?

These new features primarily benefit researchers, content creators, and professionals who seek quick and accurate summaries of information. The improved summarization and source matching can help users navigate complex topics, verify the credibility of the information, and save valuable time. In addition, the update grants access to the most recently indexed information. However, it should be noted that it may not always provide links to the source and may occasionally generate incorrect information without any source link.
