If not, Bard is Google’s experimental, conversational, AI chat service, you can also call it Google’s answer to ChatGPT and the new Microsoft Bing which has ChatGPT integrated. Google had revealed it was working on Bard on 6th February, and we heard nothing about it until today, 21st March 2023. Finally, Google Bard is now available for early access in select countries.
Google Bard is now available to users in US and UK for early access. Google revealed in a blog post, “We’re starting to open access to Bard, an early experiment that lets you collaborate with generative AI. We’re beginning with the U.S. and the U.K., and will expand to more countries and languages over time.”
Google also announced on its Official Twitter Account with a tweet that said, “Today we’re starting to open up access to Bard, our early experiment that lets you collaborate with generative AI.

It is an early experiment to test the new generative AI. Even on the Official Google Bard Website, it is called Bard Experiment.
Bard is on its way to becoming your creative and helpful collaborator, here to supercharge your imagination, boost your productivity, and bring your ideas to life. Powered by Google’s Large Language Model (LLM) a lighter version of their LaMDA. Google will continually update the model to provide users with quality information. While it is still in the experiment stage, Google has asked users to be aware that Bard is a generative AI that gets its information from various sources. This might include sources that may be inaccurate or biased, and these inaccuracies and biases may creep into their answers.
