Bard Can Watch YouTube Videos For You 🙌

Image: Google

Bard’s YouTube integration got a handy new update a few days ago that allows it to analyze individual videos to surface specific information for you without ever pressing play.

To try it out, you can share a video with Bard, and ask it a specific question about the contents of the video.

For example, you could paste the URL to a video of someone baking chocolate chip cookies from scratch, and ask a specific question about the contents of the video, like “how many eggs were used in the recipe?”

For the time being, this could potentially be a way to extract valuable nuggets from YouTube videos without watching two-minutes of pre-roll ads and skipping to the part of the video you actually want to watch.

It’s not hard to imagine a future where this tool exists right inside of YouTube, but right now, the only clear benefit is to Google & the consumer – the creator is definitely getting the short end of the stick.

Turkey Day Has Come To An End 🦃


Correct Answer ✔️

The second image from yesterday’s email was REAL.

The pinkish rose has a bit more detail with soft natural light, which is exactly what we asked Midjourney to generate.

The dark red rose, on the other hand, has higher saturation and contrast due to color grading after the picture was taken.

Even ChatGPT guessed wrong on this one.
