With the increasing rise of AI-generated content, it’s no surprise Google has also released its own Artificial Intelligence software – Google Bard. Similar to ChatGPT, Google Bard is a highly intelligent AI that can fulfill requests – but more notably, it can work alongside other Google apps.

Google Bard will soon be able to generate tables and will be able to automatically add them to any Google Sheets file. Users will be able to leverage Bard’s capabilities to create and edit spreadsheets, perform calculations, and other tasks in Sheets. With Google Bard powered by PaLM 2, it has increased coding abilities, multimodal capabilities, and AI features.

What is Google Sheets?

Google Sheets is a cloud-based spreadsheet software offered by Google as part of its productivity suite. It allows users to create, edit, and collaborate on spreadsheets online. It is the primary free-to-use alternative to Excel – as it provides all the same features. But just like Excel, it’s not as easy or simple to use – with a long list of formulas and codes to know in order to fully appreciate the app.

Google Bards integration in Google Sheets

Google Bard can help users with formula concepts, data analysis, and automated activities thanks to its collaboration with Google Sheets. Meaning you’ll no longer need to remember the complex or bizarre formulas as the AI will provide guidance for its users as well as automate certain menial tasks.

Duet AI integration with Google Sheets

During the Google I/O event, the audience was part of Duet AI integration with Google Sheets which can help individuals and businesses. The example showcased a dog walking business that needs to keep track of client and pet information, along with logistics such as the time and duration of walks. By typing “client and pet roster for a dog walking business with rates” into a new sheet.

Sheets sends this input to a fine-tuned model that generates a table with relevant information such as the dog’s name, client info, and notes.

Final Word

Regardless of your intent, Google Bard will be able to make using Sheets all the more easier. Whether it’s for work or personal projects, you won’t need to waste hours looking up guides and how to’s, as you can just ask Bard to complete whatever formula or task needed.
