Finally, Google Bard supports extensions. It functions in a manner similar to how ChatGPT plugins enhance the AI chatbot experience. Google has only introduced its services, such as Google Flights, Hotels, Maps, YouTube, and Workspace (Gmail, Drive, and Docs), to Bard, in contrast to ChatGPT, which includes hundreds of third-party plugins. It functions fairly well despite the lack of extensions since Google has developed excellent services around a lot of online tools. The best part is that no personal information from Drive, Docs, or Gmail is accessed by human reviewers or utilized to train the algorithm. Let’s get started and discover how to use Google-Bard extensions after that.

@” in the input text box to choose an extension of your choice.
