Gemini has officially rolled out to iOS and Android devices in the US. This means anyone with a compatible phone (iOS or Android 12+) can access this new AI assistant and explore its capabilities.
From Bard to Gemini: A conversational powerhouse
Previously known as Bard, Gemini is an advanced AI assistant that is not just a simple chatbot. It can perform a range of tasks not limited to text-based interactions, but also voice and image-based interactions.
You can ask Gemini any questions you have, and it will try to provide you with the best possible answers. If you’re feeling creative, Gemini can generate poems, scripts, musical pieces, or even email drafts tailored to your specific requirements. Gemini is also a great tool for bridging the language barrier, as it can easily translate text for you.
The Gemini app offers a unique experience that allows you to interact with it through text, voice, and even images. You can simply show it a picture of a dish and ask for the recipe or describe your dream vacation destination to get personalized recommendations.
Also, there is a premium tier called “Gemini Advanced” that offers access to a more powerful model and extra features for an additional cost.
With our Ultra 1.0 model, Gemini Advanced is far more capable at highly complex tasks like 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 from your previous prompts.
Faster response time for Android users
If you are an Android user, you get an additional perk with Gemini Nano running directly on your device, which provides faster response times, improved privacy, and even offline functionality.
