Google’s Bard chatbot has been playing catch-up with Microsoft’s Bing Chat since it first launched as a public “experiment” a month ago. Today, Google announced a major new update for Bard, as it can now generate programming code with text prompts.

In a blog postGoogle explains:

From now on, Bard can help with programming and software development tasks, including code generation, debugging and code specification. We’re launching these capabilities in more than 20 programming languages, including C++, Go, Java, Javascript, Python and Typescript. And you can easily export Python code to Google Colab — no copy and paste required. Bard can also help with writing functions for Google Sheets.

The new feature lets users get explanations from Bard about the code they’ve built, and it can also help debug both existing code and code that Bard has created itself. Google says it will also cite the source of any code that comes from an open-source project. As usual, the company has issued a disclaimer stating that Bard may introduce some errors in its code generation.

Of course, both ChatGPT and its cousin, Microsoft’s BingChat, also have the ability to generate code, but now it seems that Bard is quickly closing the gap in terms of its features.

Bard has it. A small update also came outStating that it will now offer a “wider range of clearer drafts” for those who want to use it to create text documents.
