Google’s AI assistant, formerly known as Bard, has rebranded as Gemini and launched the Gemini app for Android users. It is the first step in building a real AI assistant. You can ask Gemini for help with what is on your phone screen, help you in writing, brainstorming, learning, making plans with Google Maps, and more. Gemini will become your primary assistant on your Android phone.
