How we’ve created a helpful and responsible Bard experience for teens


Bard will be able to help with data visualization, too. With this new capability, Bard can generate charts from tables or data included in a prompt — like if a teen asks Bard to show in a bar chart how many hours they volunteered across a few months.

Both features will be live tomorrow and available in English to start.

Our responsible approach

We’re continuing to be responsible as we open up Bard to more people. Before launching to teens, we consulted with child safety and development experts to help shape our content policies and an experience that prioritizes safety. And organizations like the Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI) advised us on how to keep the needs of teens and families in mind.

“FOSI’s research found that most teens and parents expect that GenAI skills will be an important part of their future,” says Stephen Balkam, Founder & CEO of the Family Online Safety Institute. “Google’s thoughtful approach to expanding Bard access to teens represents an important step in offering teens the opportunity to explore this technology with the appropriate safeguards in place.”

Teens also shared feedback with us directly that they have questions about how to use generative AI and what its limitations might be. So we’ve developed a tailored onboarding experience in Bard for teens that includes resources like our AI Literacy Guide and a video with tips on how to use generative AI responsibly. The onboarding will also share an overview of how Bard Activity is used, and give teens the option to turn it on or off.
