Google Bard Wants Access To Your Texts!

Big news from Google! The search engine giant has just dropped a major upgrade for its AI, Google Bard.

Bard claims it is going to be able to read your messages, understand your tone and even personalize responses based on who you’re chatting with…

What’s the catch?

Google wants to read all your texts!

Bard will analyze your private messages, and these requests stay in the cloud for 18 months – even if you disable the AI. Cue the privacy concerns!

Here’s the deal:

Google’s pushing the envelope, but can they convince users it won’t be another privacy nightmare?

Apple is Gearing Up – Competing Google Bard

Meanwhile, Apple is working quietly to deliver the goods. They’re testing different models, including using ChatGPT.

The iOS 18 update might be a game-changer too.

Apple is wrestling with the choice of on-device or cloud-based AI. Privacy is a big deal for Apple so this decision will shake things up for sure.

Bard, Google’s AI, says it’ll do all its analysis on your device, not the cloud. How much is truth in this, only time will tell.

BUT there’s a call for caution, between what Google has promised and what might actually happen.

As Bard gets ready to hit Google Messages sometime in 2024, users are advised to think twice before unlocking those message privacy settings.

Privacy is the buzzword, and users need to be cautious. Bard is going along pretty nicely and they are in the mood to not leave any stone unturned to dethrone every AI contender, including Rabbit (R1).

Last Word

There is a lot going on in the AI world. Google has put its foot on the accelerators with Gemini and now this. Exciting AI advancements, but privacy concerns loom. Google and Apple’s AI race could redefine messaging. Users, stay vigilant!
