How to Use Google Bard AI: A Step-by-Step Guide

Gowtham Raj | 5 Min Read

Google Bard AI is a conversational AI model that remembers the previous interaction and responds contextually. Unlike Google Search, Bard AI provides a more personalized search experience.

The conversational AI models are applications of Large Language Models (LLMs), such as Google’s PaLM 2 and OpenAI’s GPT models.

  • Google will use your information, such as IP address and home or work locations to provide you best results. You cannot opt-out of this.

    How to Use Google Bard AI?

    To use Google Bard AI, head to “Google Bard website” and click “Try Bard now”. Then, start giving prompts to have a conversation with it.

    In the context of artificial intelligence (AI), a prompt is a set of instructions or guidelines that are provided to an AI model to guide its response.

    Prompts are typically used in natural language processing (NLP) tasks, where they can be used to generate text, translate languages, write different kinds of creative content, and answer questions in an informative way.

    Here are the steps to use Google Bard:

  • Head to Bard Website

  • Accept the Terms and Privacy Policy

  • Start with a Prompt

  • Ask Follow-up Questions

  • Share the Response

  • Head to Bard Website

    Google Bard has a dedicated website which you can access at any time.

    With your Gmail account signed in, head to the Bard website and click “Try Bard now”.

    Try bard

    In case you haven’t signed in to your Gmail account, you will see a “Sign in” button instead of “Try Bard now”.

    Accept the Terms and Privacy Policy

    The Terms and Privacy policy notice of Bard is nothing but how Google handles your Bard data.

    Google collects your Bard data, such as product usage information, location (IP address and home or work address), and feedback to improve your experience around all Google products and services and machine learning technologies.

    Just click “I agree”, otherwise, you won’t be able to access Bard AI.

    Start with a Prompt

    Now, you are all set to access the Google Bard chatbot.

    You can start having conversations with it just by giving prompts. You can use it as a personalized search engine, and ask it to

  • Compare different topics

  • Explain things in Layman’s terms

  • Write code snippets

  • Fine-tune your copywriting

  • Give outlines for your article and more

  • If you want to create and manage your content in a more organized way than Bard, you must try Content.Ai by GoZen. tWith a free plan, you can access 75+ templates and frameworks to create content at scale.

    I have inserted a prompt “Explain product marketing and product management in layman’s terms” for which Bard has given a great response along with a tabulated comparison.

    Bard prompt and response

    For every single prompt, Bard will generate three responses. If you are not satisfied with the first response, you can view other responses by clicking “View other drafts”.

    Providing the right prompt is one of the most important in unlock the full potential of AI-driven content generation. Platforms like PromptVibes emphasize the significance of precise prompts, as they enable users to convey their intentions effectively and receive more relevant and valuable outputs. By using the right prompts, you can streamline the creative process, ensuring that AI-generated content aligns with their specific needs and objectives.

    Ask Follow-up Questions

    As mentioned in the introduction of this article, Bard is an expert at giving contextual information. This is not possible in the conventional way of Google search.

    Since I need more clarification on “product positioning” from the response I got in the previous step, I have asked the follow-up question “What is the positioning of the product? Brief about it.”

    Bard responded with the same tone of Layman’s term as I mentioned in my first prompt. Like this, you can build up more conversions until all your queries are cleared.

    Share the Response

    Bard UI allows all users to export the responses to Google Sheets, Google Docs, and Gmail. You can also create a public link to the entire chat using the share icon.
