Google is consistently adding new features to Gemini Advanced and now it has brought the ability to edit and run Python code inside the chatbot itself. For students and developers, it's a helpful addition as it allows you to run code directly without moving to Google Colab or other services. Unlike ChatGPT's versatile Code Interpreter, the Python interpreter in Gemini is only limited to coding tasks. To access the feature, you need to subscribe to Gemini Advanced which costs $20 per month, but Google is offering two months of free trial along with Google One benefits.
After releasing Gemini Advanced with the Ultra 1.0 model last week, Google has announced its next-generation model called Gemini 1.5 Pro. The new model is built on the Mixture-of-Experts (MoE) architecture and supports a massive context window of up to 1 million tokens. It performs nearly the same as the much larger Gemini 1.0 Ultra model. The AI model is currently in limited preview and developers can test it on AI Studio after joining the waiting list.
Touted to be the most capable model by the Google DeepMind team, the Gemini Ultra 1.0 model has been finally released. Gemini Advanced is powered by the Ultra model so we compared it with OpenAI's GPT-4 model. In our tests, we found that Gemini Advanced still lacks rigorous commonsense reasoning capability, hence, it's nowhere close to GPT-4. However, in creating writing, it does a better job than GPT-4. In coding tasks, it's indeed an improvement, but with tools like Code Interpreter in GPT-4, you are likely to get better results in ChatGPT.
Google has officially started to roll out its Gemini Android app. However, it is currently limited to US users, and if you are not from the US, you will need to make a US Google account. Once you make it, you will be able to find the app listed on Play Store. Now, to set the Gemini AI as your primary voice assistant, open the Gemini app -> tap on Get started -> select I agree. That should automatically set it as your voice assistant. However, if you want to switch between Gemini and Google Assistant, open the Gemini app -> tap on profile icon -> Settings -> Digital assistants from Google -> select the desired assistant.
Google has launched a subscription plan called Gemini Advanced that is powered by the Gemini Ultra 1.0 model. Unlike the free Gemini (formerly Bard), Gemini Advanced is much better at highly complex tasks and performs close to OpenAI's GPT-4 model. It costs $20 per month, but you get two months of free trial. Gemini Advanced also bundles 2TB of storage, and Google One benefits. And soon, Gemini Advanced users will be able to access Gemini AI in apps like Gmail, Docs, and more.
Google is continuously positioning itself as the AI industry leader, and now, the search giant has rebranded Bard to Gemini in a bid to bring Google's family of best AI models to users. It has also introduced Gemini Advanced, which hosts the powerful Ultra model. However, you will have to pay $20 per month to access it. Moreover, Android users can now install the Gemini app on their smartphones whereas iPhone users can access Gemini from the Google app.
Recently, Google released the API key for its Gemini Pro model. Currently, the company is offering text-only and text-and-vision models based on the Gemini Pro model. The best part is that Google is allowing users to test the API for free and without setting up Google Cloud billing, at least for now. To teach you how to set up the Gemini AI API key and use it, we have included three coding examples to showcase the API usage. You can test Gemini Pro's multimodal capability as well through the API, which is not yet available in Bard.
Google has finally released a true multimodal AI model called Gemini. While multimodal features are not live yet, you can use Bard to check out the Gemini Pro model. Pixel users can also experience on-device AI with the Gemini Nano update. The most powerful Gemini Ultra model is quite impressive and beats the GPT-4 model on several benchmark tests. In multimodal tests too, Gemini Ultra dethrones GPT-4V model. However, the Ultra model has not been launched yet and is due to go live early next year.
