After the launch of Microsoft’s Bing AI’s Visual search to Bing Chatbot, Google has started rolling out a similar feature to its AGI tool, Google Bard. This feature is valuable as it incorporates Google Lens, which means it will have reverse-image functionality. Searching for images with Google Bard is a straightforward and easy method. Artificial General Intelligence is generally better than humans, and Google is trying hard to compete against Microsoft’s Bing AI. However, some basic functionalities still need to be improved, including not following prompts as expected.

Google Bard works with Google Lens, which can understand the image and share its details. In this article, we will share a guide on how to use Google Bard Image Search. Without further ado, let’s take a closer look at this.

How to Use Google Bar Image Search

Let’s see how to use the image prompt in the Google Bar. For this, Google has integrated Google Lens into the web-based program.

How to use Google Bard Image Search
  • Visit Google Bar on your browser and click the plus icon on the left-side of the text box.
  • Then, click “Upload File” and browse the image you want to upload.
  • Now, write some context for the photo with a query or command.
How to use Google Bard Image Search
  • That’s it! Submit your request, and it will generate a response and cite sources for the images it shows.

It will respond according to the image and prompt you to enter. This functionality is currently hit and miss; sometimes, it won’t work as it is still experimental and needs further improvements. Also, it is trained on a massive dataset for prompts, and for image search, it still uses and shares the most-liked images as it understands them via the internet in real time.

After you upload the image to Google Bar, you have a text box for a prompt where you can write your query to begin searching for it. By giving context as a prompt after uploading the image, Google Bar will better understand it and can better generate a response. If you have to search for anything, consider checking out Google Lens on mobile, as it offers more features like text translation, image search, finding products, text extraction, and more.

Anyone can use Google Bard, but they have to enroll in Beta for Google Bard. It is available in 180 countries, including the USA and India. However, due to privacy concerns, Google Bard is not available in the European Union and Canada. The company did not share a timeline for releasing it in these countries. Bard image search only supports English, but other features like generating text and understanding are compatible with English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, and Hindi.

In addition, Google has included a feature to pin the conversation to view it later. To use it, simply click the triple-dot menu on the right side of the prompt and then click Pin to save the conversation. Please note that the prompts you submit are being reviewed by humans, and your data is being stored to train Google’s Bard model to improve it.

In recent months, Google has continuously updated its Google Bar as an experiment and announced their upcoming model to be more potent than the existing GPT Mode developed by OpenAI. Google Bar is a standalone service that has yet to be integrated into Google Search. Also, Google Bar has a default dark mode, which was recently added by Microsoft’s Bing AI. However, Bing AI Chatbot could be clearer compared to Google’s Bar Grey.

Currently, Google is trying to catch up with Microsoft Bing by introducing Image Search with Google Bar, making it easier for users to find things with images. Not only this but Google Bar also shows images in its response. Currently, it cannot generate ideas with the prompt or input like Bing AI’s Image Creator. Despite the similarities between Google Bar and Microsoft Bing AI, we can confidently say that Bing AI Chatbot is more powerful and viable for users.
