Google Bard AI rebranded as Gemini for the first time on mobile.

Google Bard AI rebranded as Gemini for the first time on mobile.

Nearly a year ago, Google Bard, an AI-powered chatbot, debuted with several serious problems. Two major language model (LLM) modifications and a slew of smaller ones have contributed to its rapid expansion since then. Google is now prepared to rename the chatbot from Bard to Gemini, thereby erasing the former name and reputation. 

Gemini is the name of the LLM that powers Bard, the AI chatbot that Google revealed on Thursday. The change was made “to reflect the advanced technology at its core,” as per Google’s announcement. 

Up until now, Gemini has been Google’s most skilled and powerful LLM. You may choose between the Nano, Pro, and Ultra versions of this product. Each Gemini variant is best suited to a certain job. At the moment, Gemini Pro powers Google Bard.

Because of the rebranding effort, the chatbot now uses the name of the LLM that runs it, which might lead to confusion because of the dual usage of the Gemini brand. Like Microsoft, which renamed Bing Chat to Copilot and introduced a variety of flavors to that chatbot, Google seems to be following suit. 

Google is releasing a new Gemini app for Android next week, expanding on the rebranding. The app enhances the Google Assistant experience and makes it easier for users to use Bard on mobile for on-the-go questions. 

The Gemini app will be available for download on the Google Play Store for Android users. Users may also enable Gemini’s help via Google Assistant, which can be accessed through the app or by tapping the power button, swiping a corner, or even just saying “Hey Google.” 

To activate Gemini over your screen and initiate voice chats or text inputs, for instance, you need to long-press the power button.

In addition to the timers, calls, and smart home device management you’re used to with Google Assistant, the Gemini app will also have access to these functions, as stated in the announcement. 

You won’t be left out in the cold if you’re an iOS user who wants to enjoy Gemini on the go. According to Google, integration with Gemini inside the Google app will be available shortly.

Users will have access to the chatbot via the Gemini toggle located at the top of the Google app whenever it launches.

One of Google’s other recent announcements is the Google One AI Premium Plan, a new premium membership tier. Gemini Advanced, Google’s version of ChatGPT Plus, is available to customers at this tier. Ultra 1.0, 2 terabytes of storage, and access to all the newest Google innovations are available to consumers for $19.99 a month.

You may try out the free version or upgrade to Gemini Advanced, which uses “Ultra 1.0” AI technology, for $20 per month. Google claims to have around 100 million customers globally, and the $20/month service will aim to expand on that. Most of those subscribers pay $2–$10/month for extra storage to back up images, documents, and other digital information. 

Google thinks the artificial intelligence technology is worth an extra $10/month, as the Gemini Advanced membership will come with 2 terabytes of storage, which is now sold for $10/month.

What does Google Gemini do?

According to the Mountain View, California-based firm, Gemini is an advanced AI that can do things like instruct students, advise engineers on computer programming, generate project ideas, and produce content based on user preferences.

Although Google’s long-running voice assistant will remain accessible, the business is banking on Gemini to take over as the primary means by which people use the technology to aid in creative processes, strategic planning, and conceptualization.

This is Google’s next venture into uncharted and may be dangerous territory, all the while staying true to its original mission, “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.”

What does this mean for Google?

As part of a trend that Google started last autumn with the debut of its newest Pixel smartphones and Samsung adopted last month with its latest Galaxy smartphones, the launch of the Gemini applications highlights the growing moment to bring more AI to smartphones—devices that people carry with them everywhere.

Also, it’s going to heat the high-stakes AI battle between Microsoft and Google, two of the most powerful corporations in the world, who are competing for control of a technology that has the potential to change the way people work, play, and maybe even live. Since the end of 2022, the combined market value of Microsoft and Alphabet Inc., the corporate parent of Google, has increased by $2 trillion, thanks in large part to the struggle.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai made the bold prediction in a blog post that Gemini Advanced’s core technology would surpass human intelligence when faced with a wide range of hard problems.

“Ultra 1.0 is the first to outperform human experts on (massive multitask language understanding), which uses a combination of 57 subjects—including math, physics, history, law, medicine, and ethics—to test knowledge and problem-solving abilities,” Pichai said.


Google has rebranded its AI chatbot, Bard, to Gemini, reflecting the advanced technology at its core. The new Gemini app for Android will allow users to access Bard on-the-go queries and improve the Google Assistant experience. Users can download the Gemini app from the Google Play Store or opt-in through Google Assistant. The app will also offer features like setting timers, making calls, and controlling smart home devices. Google plans to roll out Gemini on iOS devices in the coming weeks.

The Gemini app will also offer a paid subscription tier, the Google One AI Premium Plan, which grants users access to Gemini Advanced, a ChatGPT Plus-like service. The Gemini Advanced subscription includes 2TB of storage, which Google believes is worth an additional $10 per month. The rollout of the Gemini apps signifies Google’s next foray into a new and potentially perilous avenue while remaining focused on its founding goal of organizing the world’s information.


Is Bard renamed Gemini?

Google revealed the rebranding of Bard to Gemini in an unexpected tweet. Gemini is now the URL for the bard. Additionally, Reuters pointed out that American clients can access Gemini Advanced, which uses the brand-new Ultra 1.0 AI model, for $19.99 per month.

Is Google Assistant a Gemini?

Together with many of the features you love about Google Assistant, like calling, scheduling tasks, and managing your smart home appliances, Gemini is a brand-new type of assistant that makes use of all the capabilities of generative AI. We’re also working to support additional features soon.

Is there an app for Google Gemini?

Next week, the Gemini app will launch in Japanese and Korean in the Asia-Pacific area, after an initial English release in the United States. In addition to Gemini’s free edition, Google will be offering a premium service via the app that costs $20 per month.
