Google’s Bard chatbot, powered by the Gemini Pro model, is now accessible in Nigeria as part of its global expansion, effective from February 1, 2024.

“This new capability is powered by our updated Imagen 2 model, which is designed to balance quality and speed, delivering high-quality, photorealistic outputs. Just type in a description — like “create an image of a dog riding a surfboard” — and Bard will generate custom, wide-ranging visuals to help bring your idea to life,” the company said on Thursday.

The updated version of Bard by Google now supports over 40 languages, including Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Hindi, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam.

Following the launch of new generative AI models in December, including Gemini Ultra, Gemini Pro, and Gemini Nano, Bard received an update with Gemini Pro for English conversations.

Although specific improvements were not quantified, Google stated enhancements in understanding, summarization, reasoning, brainstorming, writing, and planning.

Users of Bard can now generate images with the AI tool in English globally, and Google has implemented measures to prevent potential misuse.
