Google Bard, an AI-powered chatbot, was initially only available to users with personal Google accounts. However, Google has now made Bard accessible to Google Workspace account holders. Workspace admins can enable Bard for their domains, allowing their users to access Bard using their Workspace accounts. The only exception is Google Workspace for Education accounts for children below 18, who still won’t have access to the chatbot.
Google Bard can help with work, research, or other business needs, such as planning, ideation, and advice. Admins can turn access to Bard on or off for their users in the Admin console under Apps > Additional Google services > Early Access Apps. Note that Bard is separate from other AI-powered innovations that Google is working on for Google Workspace.
Workspace users will still have to sign up for the waitlist to get access to Google Bard. The default setting will disable the feature, but admins will have the ability to enable it at the domain, OU, or group level. Access to Google Bard will also be limited based on regional availability. This means that even if admins are able to see the option to enable Bard on their Workspace Console, it won’t be functional unless Bard itself is available in that country.
