Bard is making a beeline for Google Messages

When Google Messages first launched, it was widely panned. It was buggy, lacked features, and generally felt like a half-baked effort. But over the past few years, Google has slowly but steadily improved the app, adding features and making it more reliable. Now, it’s one of the best messaging apps on Android.

And it looks like Google is about to take things to the next level with Bard.

Bard is an AI chatbot that Google is currently testing out in the Messages app. The goal of Bard is to make your messaging experience more efficient and hassle-free.

To do this, Bard will take over some of the mundane tasks that you currently have to do in Messages. For example, if you want to set up a meeting with someone, Bard can handle all the back-and-forth scheduling for you.

Bard can also help you find information. So, if you’re chatting with someone about a restaurant, Bard can quickly pull up reviews, directions, and menu items.

And if you’re worried about Bard having access to your private messages, don’t be. Google says that Bard is not trained using your private messages. Instead, it uses public data to learn how to best assist you.

So far, Bard is only available to a small group of users as part of a closed beta. But if the beta goes well, we could see Bard roll out to everyone in the near future.

Personally, I’m excited to see what Bard can do. I think it has the potential to be a game-changer for the Messages app. And it could also make our lives a lot easier in the process.
