Google Bard & YouTube: Bard AI Now Cracks YouTube Videos


Google has announced a new update to its AI chatbot Bard, enabling it to answer questions directly related to the content of YouTube videos, further cementing the powerful partnership between Google Bard & YouTube. This new feature marks an essential step in Bard’s ability to engage in deeper conversations about YouTube’s vast video library.

About Google Bard

Bard is a conversational generative AI chatbot developed by Google based on the LaMDA family of large language models (LLMs). It was developed as a direct response to the rise of OpenAI’s ChatGPT and was released in a limited capacity. But now Google is investing more in its new features to create a more advanced and unique user experience for its customers. With the new AI-powered Google Maps feature, it has become the world’s largest mapping network. Now expanding its region, Google is enhancing its AI chatbot for a more user-friendly experience.

Enhanced Connection of Google Bard & YouTube

Previously, Bard’s YouTube extension mainly served as a search tool, allowing users to find specific videos based on keywords or topics. However, the latest update introduces a broader understanding of video content, enabling Bard to answer questions directly related to the videos.

Richer Conversations

According to Google’s announcement on Bard’s updates page, this enhanced capability stems from Bard’s ability to extract key information from YouTube videos. For instance, if a user is watching a recipe video on making olive oil cake, they can now ask Bard how many eggs the recipe requires without having to search for the information manually.

Expanding Age Access

In addition to this new Google Bard & YouTube feature, Google has expanded access to Bard for teenagers in many countries that previously required 18+ age for registration. The company acknowledges the potential of Bard as a tool for teenagers to “find inspiration, discover new hobbies, and solve everyday problems.”

Google Bard & YouTube Generative AI

The enhanced Bard capabilities align with YouTube’s ongoing experiments with generative AI features. Two weeks before Google’s announcement, YouTube explored new features such as answering questions about video content and summarizing topics in video comments. The introduction of Google Bard & YouTube’s ability to answer questions about its videos opens up a world of possibilities for users. It could enhance the viewing experience by providing real-time information and insights about the watched content. 

Google’s continuous development of Bard underscores the company’s commitment to advancing AI capabilities in video content. The ability to answer questions directly related to YouTube videos represents a significant step forward in Bard’s ability to engage in meaningful conversations with users. As Google Bard & YouTube’s capabilities evolve, it could revolutionize how we interact with and understand video content.
