ChatGPT vs. Bard: What's the difference? [2023]

The bullet points provided in the list seem to prompt the user to learn how to compose a tweet. This is ideal for beginners who are grasping the fundamentals, but may not be as helpful if you simply require a ready-to-use draft. It's worth noting that with some prompt adjustments, the output can be tailored to your specific needs. These differences in functionality highlight the distinct approaches employed by both tools.

Additionally, it includes the source from which it obtained the image, allowing you to click on the links if you wish to verify the sources or visit the actual web page for more information.

It also includes the source it grabbed the image from, so you can click through the links if you want to check the sources (or visit the actual web page they're from for more information).

Bard's ability to surface visuals provides a better sense of what you're exploring:


It's just another feature that solidifies its position as a research tool—assisted by Google Search.

ChatGPT has more integrations and a comprehensive set of plugins

ChatGPT offers a wide range of plugins that unlock even more use cases, far surpassing what Bard can offer.


For example, with the Expedia plugin, I can simply inform ChatGPT about a trip I'm considering booking, and it will promptly provide the cheapest flights available through the travel site. It includes the link, airport details, flight duration, and most importantly, the pricing.


It's so much easier than manually searching travel sites, adjusting filters, and comparing them side by side. Additionally, ChatGPT can suggest accommodations or other area-specific activities for you to explore.

You can ask Bard to perform similar tasks, but it will provide you with completely fabricated prices. Moreover, the images it provides (logos of the airlines) can be distracting.


Furthermore, you can install multiple ChatGPT plugins to work in combination. For instance, you can ask the AI for a recipe recommendation, obtain an accurate count of calories using the Wolfram plugin, and then request it to create a shopping list using the Instacart plugin.


It's almost like having a personal assistant—ideal for those who dislike planning ahead for anything. (Ahem.)

You can also seamlessly integrate ChatGPT into your existing workflows with Zapier's ChatGPT integration. This allows you to use ChatGPT to write content and generate responses across your favorite apps. Here are a couple of examples.

Bard vs. ChatGPT: Which is better?

That was a lot to take in, so let's quickly go over the pros and cons.

Google Bard: pros and cons



Bard has internet access powered by Google Search built into its tool for free, allowing for fast responses

Bard provides a relatively isolated experience, with no plugins or integrations

ChatGPT: pros and cons



ChatGPT is better at generating text, such as creating long-form content

ChatGPT Plus has access to a web browser powered by Bing, but it is a separate experience and can be slow at times

ChatGPT offers a more collaborative experience, allowing for sharing conversations with others

ChatGPT's responses are often quite lengthy and the text is chunky, making it difficult to skim

ChatGPT has a comprehensive suite of plugins (as well as a Zapier integration) that offer numerous use cases with different apps
