How to enable and use Bard on Google Workspace


Bard is a large language model from Google AI that can be used to help with various tasks, including writing, research, and creative projects. Although still under development, Bard is a valuable resource for Google users who can test it out for free.

This article will walk you through who can use Bard, what for, and how to enable it for Google Workspace users.

What is Google Bard?

Bard is an experimental conversational AI powered by Google’s LaMDA and machine learning. Similarly to ChatGPT from OpenAI, you can use it to find information, brainstorm ideas, generate and translate text, write creative content, and generally help you with your work.

It works by pulling and analyzing data from the Internet, and, in turn, it gives you answers to your prompts.


How to enable access to Bard for Google Workspace?

Bard is off by default. It’s not enabled for all Google Workspace users yet. Only Google Workspace administrators can enable Bard for their organization, and they have the option to make it available to all users, even if it is not yet available in their country.

To enable Bard, follow these steps:

  • Go to the Google Workspace website and click on Google Admin Console.
  • Click on “Apps”.
  • Click on “Additional Google services”.
  • Click on “Early Access Apps”.
  • Find Bard in the list of Early Access Apps and click on the “Enable” button.

Is Bard available for everyone?

Bard is now accessible in over 40 languages across 230+ countries and regions, including all the countries in the European Union.

Plus, Bard is completely free of charge.

To use Bard, you need the following:

  • A personal Google Account or a Google Workspace account for which your administrator has enabled access to Bard.
  • To be 18 years old or older.
  • To use a supported browser: Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera, or Edgium.

How to use Bard?

Using Bard is pretty straightforward. With a minimalist interface, you can simply type your question, or prompt, and wait a few seconds for Bard to generate its answer. You can view the different drafts Bard will offer you and modify your prompt or the answer (to be simple, long, short, professional, and casual).

Besides adding more countries and languages, Bard’s latest update introduced more customization options. For example, you can now listen to Bard’s responses in over 40 languages. You also have the option to pin and rename your conversations, export code to more places, share responses, and use images in your prompts.


Bard is a powerful tool that can help with various tasks in Google Workspace. It is constantly being updated and improved and learning from its users.
