This is a significant improvement given alternatives like ChatGPT, despite being global, aren't (officially) available everywhere. The list of countries Bard is available in includes countries such as Italy, where ChatGPT was blocked until rather recently over privacy concerns, and Venezuela, where it's blocked because of sanctions by the US government. Likewise, the newly added languages ensure everyone around the world can use Bard in their native language.

As part of this wider update, Bard is also getting a range of improvements. For one, you can now ask Bard to read responses out loud if you want it to read a poem, or if you're just wondering about the pronunciation of a specific word. And if an answer isn't good enough for you, you can also ask Bard to change its tone to be longer, shorter, simpler, more casual, or more professional — this latter feature is only available in English for now.
