Have you used Google's AI service Bard?
Bard was launched in February 2023
Now the hub has been changed to Gemini, without the interface being changed to any great extent in the browser. Gemini is Google's large AI platform which consists of, among other things, Gemini Advanced, which is the most advanced chatbot: "Gemini Advanced will be available through the new Google One AI Premium subscription, also available from today."
Bard has now been renamed Gemini to reflect the advanced technology at its core. It will be available online, in a new Gemini app for Android, and through the Google app on iOS.
Among other things, the Advanced model can code: “With our Ultra 1.0 model, Gemini Advanced is far better able to perform very complex tasks such as coding, logical reasoning, following nuanced instructions, and collaborating on creative projects. Gemini Advanced not only allows you to have longer, more detailed conversations; it also better understands the context of your previous messages.” Norwegian support is in place.
Duet AI is also renamed "to Gemini for Google Workspace and Google Cloud." Soon, users with the Google One AI Premium subscription will be able to use Gemini in Gmail, Documents, Spreadsheets, Presentations, and Meetings," explains Google in the press release.
Gemini is a launcher as an Android app
At the same time, Gemini is now an app for Android that can be downloaded from the Play Store or activated through Google Assistant. The change must not be confused with Pixel AI which is supposed to arrive later this year, but as the name suggests only for Google's mobiles. The company reports that Gemini can be retrieved via the Google app on the iPhone within a few weeks.
“If you download the Gemini app or sign up via Google Assistant, you'll be able to access it from the app or anywhere else you'd normally activate Google Assistant — by pressing the power button or swiping the corner on select phones, or say “Hey Google.”
This will enable a new overlay experience that provides easy access to Gemini as well as contextual help right on your screen – so you can, for example, generate a caption for a photo you've just taken or ask a question about an article you're reading. Many Google Assistant voice features will be available through the Gemini app – including setting timers, making calls, and controlling your smart home devices – we're working to support more in the future.”
