Say goodbye to google bardand say hello to Google Gemini.
On Thursday, Alphabet and Google CEO Sundar Pichai announced that the company will change the name of its you have a model Bard like Gemini. The company launched Gemini late last year, calling it its “largest and most capable AI model,” and Bard and Gemini existed side by side for a while. But now, the entirety of Google’s public-facing AI universe is being incorporated into different Gemini variants.
“In December, we took an important step on our path to making AI more useful to everyone with the start of the Gemini era, establishing a new state of the art in a wide range of text, image, audio and video. However, “Gemini is evolving to be more than just models. “It supports an entire ecosystem, from the products that billions of people use every day to the APIs and platforms that help developers and companies innovate,” Pichai wrote in a blog post.
Plus, Google is also pulling out AI Duo presents in its Workspace under the Gemini product umbrella, and Duet AI now becomes Gemini for Workspace. Finally, Duet AI for Cloud will also become Gemini “in the coming weeks.”
Google says Gemini is now available in 40 languages In the net. There is also a new Gemini app on Android, as well as the Google application on iOS. All of them are free and give you access to the basic version of Gemini, which is called that and is based on the Pro 1.0 AI model.
For those who require more from their AI assistant, there’s Gemini Advanced, based on Google’s largest AI model, Ultra 1.0 (yes, even when it consolidates things under a single brand, Google still finds a way to make it complicated). Google says Gemini Advanced is “much more capable of reasoning, following instructions, coding, and creative collaboration.” To use Gemini Advanced, you will need to subscribe to the new Google One AI Premium Plan.
That plan costs $20 per month in the US or €22.99 per month in the EU, although for the price you get 2TB of storage and other Google One Premium perks.
