If you were one of the many wondering how to register for Google Bard early access, you’ve come to the right place.

Google Bard is Google’s latest AI release. It follows on from LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications) that Google released two years ago. Now with this new model, Google claim they’ve made an AI that can ‘plan the perfect birthday party‘, and even ‘understand really complex topics simply.‘ The release certainly follows on nicely from the recent unveiling of GPT-4, OpenAI’s latest AI. However, Bard is built around Google’s ‘Objectives for AI applications’ which include such objectives as ‘be socially beneficial’. For the full list, head over here.

But how do you register for early access? Let’s find out.

How to register for Google Bard early access 

The good news is that, if you’re eligible, it’s very easy. All you have to do is head over to their site. Hit the ‘Join Waitlist’ button. Here’s what it should look like:

If you are eligible, a new screen will then load asking you to confirm, and if you would like email updates. It should look like this:

Once you’ve opted in or out of email updates, hit the ‘Yes, I’m in.’ button. You should then receive email confirmation that you have joined the waitlist.

You will receive an email confirmation. And you’re done!

However, as Google Bard is in its early access stage there are many caveats to exactly who is eligible. It turns out if you are trying to access Google bard using a Workspace account, or indeed, any account where Google cannot confirm that you are over 18, you will not be allowed to join the waitlist.

Furthermore, access is restricted to certain countries, so Bard may not be available in your area. If you live in the UK or US however, you should be fine.
