Gemini, formerly called Google Bard, will soon appear in Google Messages. The chatbot will offer welcome editorial assistance and will be able to interact with other Google services. Here’s what awaits you.
Don’t call him Bard anymore. Google’s conversational agent has just been renamed Gemini, adopting the name of the language model that powers it. Free, generative AI will also be accessible in a paid subscription which will allow you to benefit from the Ultra model (the most advanced). An application has also been launched (only across the Atlantic for the moment).
Generative AI will also arrive in other parts of the Android ecosystem. Starting with Google Messages. As a reminder, it was already rumored that the chatbot was going to enter the communication application. It will notably act as an editorial assistant, allowing you to reformulate a message, translate it, change its tone, develop it or, conversely, make it shorter.
Gemini will arrive in Google Messages to make your life easier
But as AssembleDebug reveals, Gemini will also have other prerogatives in the application. According to the Android ecosystem expert, the conversational agent will be accompanied by Google extensions as on its web version. “The same extensions available on the web version will be available with Bard (Gemini, editor’s note),” assures the leaker.
Specifically, you should be able to quickly view Google Maps while talking to Gemini in Google Messages. The same goes for Gmail or Google Calendar with which the AI assistant can interact directly in the application. Integrations that should make your life easier, especially if you need to enlighten a contact on an itinerary, share your schedule or even take information from an email to complete a message.
The range of possibilities is very vast and Google should suggest more use cases very soon. Apart from Google Messages, Gemini could also take the place of the Google Assistant eventually. Initially, the new AI-powered assistant should appear on Pixel smartphones.
