Bing Chat Better At News / Sports & Google Bard Can Code

Google and Bing announced more updates for Google Bard and Bing Chat. Google said Bard can now code, and indeed it can. At the same time, Bing Chat announced a few updates, including being better at showing information on news and sports, amongst other updates.

Bard Can Code

Google announced Bard can now code in over 20 programming languages, including C++, Go, Java, Javascript, Python, and Typescript. Google may even show citations and links when citing sources for similar code, as well as licenses for that code, which it has been having a hard time with.

Bard can now generate code for you, and you can easily export Python code to Google Colab.
