Google Changes Bard, Their AI Chatbot, to Gemini

Social Media Plug-ins:

Google announced on Thursday that Bard, it’s AI chatbot, has been renamed Gemini, adopting the name of the text, voice, and image-capable AI model that began powering the Bard chatbot in December.

Google has revealed that Gemini, which is receiving more prominent positioning among Google’s services, will have its own dedicated app on Android phones. On Apple mobile devices, Gemini will be integrated into the primary Google app.

“Bard has been the best way for people to directly experience our most capable models. To reflect the advanced tech at its core, Bard will now simply be called Gemini. It’s available in 40 languages on the web and is coming to a new Gemini app on Android and the Google app on iOS,” Google stated in a press release provided to LEADERSHIP.

The version featuring Ultra will be known as Gemini Advanced, offering a new experience that is far more capable of reasoning, following instructions, coding, and creative collaboration.

“For example, it can be a personal tutor tailored to your learning style. Or it can be a creative partner, helping you plan a content strategy or build a business plan. You can read more in this post,” Google added.

Anyone can begin using Gemini Advanced by subscribing to the new Google One AI Premium plan, which consolidates the best of Google’s AI features in one place. This premium plan expands on the popular Google One service, offering extended storage and exclusive product features.

Bringing Gemini’s Capabilities to More Products

Gemini models are also being introduced to products widely used by individuals and businesses, including Workspace and Google Cloud.

“Already, more than one million people are using features like ‘Help me write’ to enhance their productivity and creativity through Duet AI. Duet AI will become Gemini for Workspace, and soon consumers with the Google One AI Premium plan can use Gemini in Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Meet.

“For cloud customers, Duet AI will also transition to Gemini in the coming weeks. Gemini will assist companies in boosting productivity, developers in coding faster, and organisations in protecting themselves from cyberattacks, among countless other benefits,” Google explained.

Regarding future developments, Google noted, “Hundreds of thousands of developers and businesses have already been building with Gemini models. While today focuses on Gemini Advanced and its new capabilities, next week we will share more details on what’s coming for developers and Cloud customers.

“These latest updates reflect our bold approach to innovation and the responsible advancement and deployment of this technology. We’re already well underway in training the next iteration of our Gemini models.”
