According to X’s post by Android app developer Dylan Roussel, various changes are coming to Google’s AI chatbot Bard, starting with its newly rebranded name “Gemini”.

Apart from rebranding, Gemini may also get a dedicated app for smartphones which gives more access to users to simply their day-to-day tasks. Additionally, the app can be integrated with other Google products such as Gmail, Google Maps, and YouTube. The Gemini app is reported to be launched in the US first and then it will be made globally available except few regions.

As reported earlier, Google will be introducing a subscription model with Gemini Advance. With this, users will be able to take advantage of the Ultra 1.0 model of Gemini which is more powerful than the Pro version. The document said Gemini Ultra 1.0 will be “far more capable at highly complex tasks like coding, logical reasoning, following nuanced instructions, and creative collaboration.” It is also reported that the Gemini Advance will get new and improved capabilities to conduct various tasks.
