Google added a new GoogleOther crawler to the list of crawlers - Google Crawler (User-Agent) | Google Search Central  |  Dokumentation  |  Google Developers.
Will this crawler be added to the list of Known Bots?

It probably will, but from what I read about the bot, it is for research and development. So to me, this means they are separating Googlebot for Google Index and Googleother for Bard. Once this is confirmed and doesn’t affect anything else, I have a rule that matches Google’s ASN and that user-agent ready to switch on; Google can screw itself if it thinks Bard can use my data.
