Google Assistant has become supercharged with artificial intelligence. This may be the biggest update in Google’s history.

Google Assistant has become supercharged with artificial intelligence.  This may be the biggest update in Google’s history.

If you feel an earthquake right now, this could be the latest announcement from Google. In one of the biggest updates in Google’s history, the company has launched the full version of its software Next generation AI model Gemini. Google is changing the name of its chatbot from cold to Gemini, releasing a dedicated Gemini mobile app, and launching a premium AI-powered subscription service. However, the news that will have the biggest impact on your life is that the company has just added Gemini to Google Assistant. Starting now, millions of people will have voice conversations with one of the most powerful AI models on the market.

“Every launch is big, but this is the biggest yet,” Sisi Hsiao, vice president of Gemini Experiences and Google Assistant, said, speaking at a press conference. “For Google, Gemini is more than just a fashion model. It’s truly a shift in how we think about cutting-edge technologies and the entire ecosystem we’re building on them, from the products that impact billions of users to the APIs and platforms that developers and companies use to innovate.”

The Gemini mobile app is now available on Android devices, and the company has also added Gemini to the Google app on iOS. If you want to use Gemini Ultra, the company’s most powerful AI, you can sign up for a plan that costs $19.99 per month. And across Google services, almost everything related to AI is now called Gemini. It’s a big shift in how you want the company to be perceived.

Until now, Google has kept its chatbot technology isolated from the general public. You can’t use Bard (the Google chatbot that just renamed Gemini) unless you go to Private siteThe company has gone out of its way to describe all of its AI tools as “experimental.” After nearly a year of caution, it appears that Google is finally ready to stand behind its AI products — for the most part.

Bard’s new name is Gemini, and he finally has a voice.

Google is still concerned about forcing AI on users, so for now you should look to Gemini. But Google’s AI is at your fingertips like never before. If you subscribe, you’ll be able to summon Gemini on Android devices by saying “Hey Google” or pressing the power button on certain phones, the same way you interact with Assistant.

It’s hard to overstate how transformative it will be for Google to give Gemini a voice, both from a computing perspective and in terms of the ways in which it will change your quasi-social relationship with the most powerful company on the Internet.

This has strange implications. Google has personality now, and you can chat with the company in a whole new way. Of course, you’re not actually talking to Google, but that’s what it will feel like. I’ve been able to “talk” to Google through Assistant for about a decade, but its canned responses never felt like a real conversation. Now Google is ready to talk.

We asked Hsiao if Geminis have a sense of humor, and what their personality is like. She said people find Geminis “interesting,” but did not provide any details.

The assistant is still there, and if you don’t like the change you can keep the old version. But it seems likely that Google’s long-term plan is to replace Assistant with Gemini entirely. Apple is on a similar path. Widely circulating rumors claim that the upcoming iOS 18, scheduled for release later this year, will include a major revamp that adds artificial intelligence to Siri.

Bard isn’t the only product that just got a rebrand. Duet AI — the artificial intelligence tool that will help you with writing and other tasks in apps like Gmail, Docs, Meet, and Drive — will soon be called Gemini, too. Google did not provide a timetable for this change.

Interestingly, Gemini may not realize that he has a new name.

“Self-consciousness is something models struggle with,” Hsiao said. “So, on Thursday, if you asked, ‘What’s your name?’ and he might still say, ‘I’m cold.’ We’re working on fixing that.” It is a testament to the fact that AI is, to some extent, still a tool beyond humanity’s control.

Google’s new Gemini Ultra costs $19.99 per month.

Google unveiled Gemini in December, but you can only use Gemini Pro, the base and less powerful tier. Now consumers finally have access to the Gemini Ultra for a price.

According to Google, Gemini Ultra is the most advanced AI on the market. The company says Gemini Ultra is the first AI model to outperform human experts on a standardized test called MMLU (Massive Multi-Task Language Understanding), which measures AI knowledge and problem-solving abilities in a range of 57 subjects such as mathematics, physics, history, law, medicine and ethics.

Google’s new AI business format is very similar to ChatGPT. The free version of Gemini runs on the basic Gemini Pro model, just like the free ChatGPT tier runs on GPT-3.5. If you want the full capabilities of Gemini Ultra, it costs $19.99 per month, which is a penny less than what OpenAI costs for GPT-4.

Gemini Ultra comes with other perks too. It’s now integrated into a new premium tier of Google One, the subscription service that gives you more storage and other perks. The Gemini Ultra comes as part of the new Google One AI Premium plan, which includes all the benefits of the 2TB storage plan. You can try the free trial for two months if you want to preview. (If you don’t want the AI, the regular 2TB plan still costs $9.99 per month.)

Your phone is an AI device now.

With Gemini on your phone, you’re now holding an all-in-one AI device. This is probably less exciting than it sounds (if it sounds exciting at all). At this point, large language models like Gemini and ChatGPT can be good for basic writing tasks, brainstorming, image creation, programming, and much more. But it’s just a preview of a new era of computing that will unfold in the next few months, and there will be immediate consequences that are initially subtle.

For example, the Internet already Filled with unwanted texts and images generated by artificial intelligence. This issue is about to get very charged. Yesterday, if you wanted to create content for AI, you had to want it badly enough to pull a special app or website. This isn’t a huge barrier to entry, but it’s enough of an inconvenience to save us from at least some of the worst AI-driven human impulses. Now, the prospect of creating your own AI project is one step away from “OK Google.”

You’ll receive a lot of texts and emails from Gemini, and you’ll likely see a lot of AI graphic hallucinations. Across the board, the world will be filled with more artificial intelligence than ever before.

But there will be positive consequences too. Throughout the history of computers, you’ve had to translate your thoughts, desires, and intentions into machine language, learning your machine’s preset commands and manipulating swipes and double-clicks. The more integrated your phone becomes with AI chatbots, the closer we get to a world where our devices understand our intentions as well as our friends (or something close to it).

The holy grail is that – one day – you’ll be able to ask your phone to perform any of its various tasks with your voice, and it will understand you, in most cases, no matter how you phrase your request. This is the clear vision from where we stand today. The revolution in computing means that people will create applications, functions, and processes that are difficult to imagine at this point. This is all a pipe dream, but Google has brought us one step closer. And if there’s anything we’ve learned from the last 18 months of AI madness, it’s that the future is a lot closer than it seems.
