The AI chatbot Bard may be rebranded as Gemini by Google in the near future

Google’s AI chatbot Bard’s image generating feature was made available last week. Google’s Bard enables users to create AI-generated visuals by providing language suggestions in the chatbot, much like Microsoft’s Copilot. According to reports, Google intends to rename its chatbot Bard as Gemini after it generates images, following Microsoft’s example of renaming its AI chatbot Bing as Copilot.

A developer by the name of Dylan Roussel on platform X (formerly Twitter) has made public a new changelog from Google that reportedly contains a list of enhancements the company is working on for Google Bard, its AI chatbot. The changelog screenshot indicates that the updates will be available on February 7 and that one of the changes will be the replacement of the term Bard with Gemini.

This move is in line with Google’s strategy to incorporate its LLM model, Gemini, across its product line. Notably, Google may be choosing to fully promote its AI model Gemini, which is the basis for Bard.

Apart from the rebranding, the changelog screenshot indicates that Google may potentially launch a premium ‘Advanced’ tier that is powered by Gemini Ultra. It is said that Google intends to charge for the advanced version of Gemini, just like OpenAI charges a fee for its advanced large language model GPT-4. The expanded multi-modal features, better coding support, and deeper file and document exploration and analysis are all coming in the advanced edition. In addition, with this version, Gemini is reaching out to Canada, where it is available for the first time since its launch.

Three versions of Google’s LLM Gemini were released last year: Gemini Nano, Gemini Pro, and Gemini Ultra. Google claims that its LLM model can “perform complex tasks like logical reasoning, coding, creative collaboration, and following nuanced instructions.”

That’s not all, though. Additionally, Google intends to release a Gemini app specifically for smartphone users. With Google’s new Gemini app, you can use AI on your phone to do a number of tasks, like planning, writing, and learning. Gemini is compatible with YouTube, Gmail, and Maps, among other Google services. While iOS users might be able to access Gemini through the Google app, Android users will receive a separate app.

Only specific devices will be able to use the app, according to a leaked copy of Google’s changelog. Additionally, Gemini will support more languages in most parts of the world-with the exception of several European nations and regions-including Japanese, Korean, and English. Google also intends to shortly expand Gemini’s language and country offerings.

It’s important to remember that Google has not yet provided confirmation, but this week should see the major announcements.
