    Last week, Google announced that it is renaming Bard to Gemini. It also announced the launch of Gemini for Android and iOS, but it was only available in the US and in the English language. However, within a matter of days, Google has expanded the availability of Gemini to Android smartphones in more countries.

    Gemini is now available on Android phones across Asia and Europe

    Multiple users across Asia and Europe are now reporting that they can access Gemini on their Android smartphone. While Google had announced that it would make Gemini available to more users, Europe wasn't on the company's list. It looks like Google is working harder to make its latest AI chatbot available to as many users as possible. Some users have managed to get Gemini working on the Galaxy S23 series by sideloading the app's APK file. However, some users haven't been able to access Gemini by long-pressing the power button.

    A few days ago, Jack Krawczyk, who leads the development of Gemini, said that the AI assistant would be available in Africa, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and North America next. But it looks like Gemini is now available to people more widely. Gemini is currently not as feature-rich as Google Assistant in smart home-related tasks. Google said that it is working around the clock to bring those missing features to Gemini.

    Google's Gemini LLM powers Gemini, and it is far more capable of understanding natural language and conversations. It is context-aware, too, which means it can have back-and-forth conversations with users and remember the context. It also has a newer UI compared to Google Assistant. It looks like Google will fully replace Google Assistant on Android devices in the future.
