Google Renames AI Services Bard and Duet to Gemini
In an unexpected move, Google has officially renamed its AI services Bard and Duet to Gemini. The name change was leaked earlier this month, causing excitement and speculation among tech enthusiasts. Google CEO Sundar Pichai stated that the new name reflects the advanced technology at the core of these AI services.
Gemini is now available as a dedicated Android app, offering users enhanced capabilities. One of the key features is the ability to replace Google Assistant with Gemini as the default assistant on their device. This allows for a more personalized and conversational experience.
With Gemini, users can enjoy a conversational overlay on their display with contextual suggestions. They can also access commonly used Assistant features through the Gemini app. Google plans to bring more Assistant functions to Gemini in the future, further expanding its capabilities.
Gemini is currently available in English in the US on both Android and iOS platforms. However, Google has announced that more languages and countries will be added in the future to cater to a larger user base.
In addition to the standard Gemini app, Google has introduced Gemini Advanced, its most capable AI model. This advanced version is designed for complex tasks such as coding, logical reasoning, and collaborating on creative projects. To access Gemini Advanced, users can subscribe to the Google One AI Premium plan.
To address concerns surrounding bias and unsafe content, Google claims to have conducted extensive trust and safety checks on Gemini Advanced. This ensures that users can rely on the AI model for accurate and reliable assistance.
The rebranding of Bard and Duet to Gemini showcases Google’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of AI technology. With its advanced capabilities and personalized features, Gemini is set to revolutionize the way users interact with AI assistants.
