Gemini Pro, the powerful language model powering Bard was previously available only in English.

The new update comes at a time the use of AI-generated images have been the subject of discussion worldwide after deepfake AI-generated explicit images of American pop singer Taylor Swift went viral on social media platforms.
“Google’s technical guardrails and investments in the safety of training data seek to limit violent, offensive or sexually explicit content. Additionally, Google applies filters designed to avoid the generation of images of named people,” the firm added.
Bard’s double-check feature, which is already used by millions of people in English and now in the added languages empowers users to verify the accuracy of Bard’s responses by referencing supporting information from the web, fostering trust and transparency.
