Google has updated the Bard AI chatbot so that you can have deeper and more meaningful conversations with YouTube videos. For example, the company says you can ask Bard AI how many eggs were used in the video for a cake recipe.

You’ll also be able to ask him for the names of specific tools in a DIY video. When it comes to food reviews, the chatbot can tell you where certain restaurants mentioned in the video are located or where the cuisine comes from.

Bard first gained the ability to retrieve data from YouTube in September after an update.

However, he couldn’t analyze the content of the video and couldn’t answer detailed questions about it. Google said it released this update because it heard from users that they want to interact better with video.

To be able to chat with Bard about YouTube videos, you’ll need to enable the YouTube extension on the chatbot portal.
