Google has launched Gemini Advanced and a new mobile app. It has also rebranded its collaborative AI chatbot, Bard, as Gemini. Users can now engage with Gemini in over 40 languages and 230 countries. Gemini Advanced introduces Ultra 1.0, their most powerful AI model.
In independent assessments, Gemini Advanced with Ultra 1.0 outperformed leading alternatives in chatbot preferences. With Ultra 1.0, Gemini Advanced excels in complex tasks like coding, logical reasoning, and creative collaboration. It supports longer, more detailed conversations and understands context better. It serves as a personal tutor, assists in advanced coding scenarios, and aids digital creators in content generation and audience growth.
Gemini Advanced is part of Google's new One AI Premium Plan, priced at $19.99/month, offering benefits like 2TB storage. Subscribers will soon integrate Gemini into Gmail, Docs, Slides, Sheets, and more, now called Duet AI.
To enhance mobile accessibility, Google is also launching a Gemini app for Android and integrating it into the Google app on iOS. This mobile experience enables users to type, talk, or add images for assistance on the go. Android users can access Gemini through the app or Google Assistant, with features like generating captions for images and controlling smart home devices.
On iOS, access will be rolled out through the Google app, offering a conversational, multimodal, and helpful AI assistant experience. Gemini is initially available in the U.S. in English, expanding to more locations, languages, and features in the coming weeks. Google emphasizes a responsible approach, incorporating safety measures to address content issues and biases in line with their AI Principles.
