    TechnologyApps & SoftwareGoogle rebrands Bard as Gemini, launches Gemini Advanced

    As part of its bold and responsible AI innovation, Google announced that Bard is now called Gemini, and comes with a paid version, Gemini Advanced. Currently accessible via web, Gemini and Gemini Advanced will soon be available in the country as apps on iOS and Android. 

    The rationale behind naming Bard as Gemini stems from the intent of reflecting the advanced technology of Google powering the generative or chatbot AI. Gemini is now available in over 40 languages and more than 230 countries and territories at no cost, including the Philippines. 

    Meanwhile, Gemini Advanced is a subscription service powered by Google’s largest and most capable state-of-the-art AI model to date, Ultra 1.0. In blind evaluations with third-party raters, Gemini Advanced is now the most preferred chatbot compared to leading alternatives.

    Gemini Advanced is far more capable of highly complex tasks like coding, logical reasoning, following nuanced instructions, and collaborating on creative projects. Gemini Advanced not only allows people to have longer, more detailed conversations; it also better understands the context from previous prompts. 

    For example, Gemini Advanced can be a personal tutor — creating step-by-step instructions, sample quizzes, or back-and-forth discussions tailored to learning styles. It can also help with more advanced coding scenarios, serving as a sounding board for ideas and different coding approaches. It can help digital creators as well to go from idea to creation by generating fresh content, analyzing recent trends, brainstorming improved ways to grow their audiences, and so much more! 

    Gemini Advanced is available as part of the new Google One AI Premium Plan for USD19.99/month, starting with a two-month trial at no cost. This plan gives people the best of Google AI and Google’s latest advancements, along with all the benefits of the existing Google One Premium plan, such as 2TB of storage. In addition, AI Premium subscribers will soon be able to use Gemini in Gmail, Docs, Slides, Sheets, and more (formerly known as Duet AI).

    Gemini has already rolled out on Android and iOS phones as an app in the U.S. in English, and will be fully available in the coming weeks. Soon, people will be able to access it in more locations, countries, and languages.
