How to Install Google Bard as Desktop App in Windows 11
Google Bard is an AI chat tool, like ChatGPT and Microsoft Bing Chat. Bard is trained on a massive amount of text data to communicate and generate human-like text in response to a wide range of prompts and questions. Still under development, Bard uses Google’s LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications) to simulate human-like conversation, answer questions, and more.
Here is how to install Bard as a desktop application in Windows 11. Google Bard AI chatbot does not have a specific desktop application, rather it will integrate directly into the Chrome browser, like Microsoft Edge Bing Chat. But you can install Bard on your computer and access the AI chat tool directly from the desktop.

That is all about how to use Google Bard as a desktop application in Windows 11. As said above, Bard is still in development, so it has a few limitations. It is possible it will not provide accurate results for every query, may not bring a creative text in the correct format, cannot summarise text accurately, and will not provide an accurate translation.
