The Rundown: Google just officially rebranded its AI chatbot Bard as Gemini and launched major upgrades, including a new mobile app and access to its highly anticipated Ultra model.
The details:
  • Gemini Advanced gives access to Ultra 1.0, Google’s “largest and most capable” AI model that competes with GPT-4 on performance benchmarks.
  • The Advanced model is accessible as part of a $19.99/month Google One AI Premium subscription plan (the same as ChatGPT plus 👀).
  • A Gemini mobile app rolls out on Android and iOS in the U.S., allowing enhanced on-device assistance via typing, voice, and images.
  • The Android app supports some existing Google Assistant features, including making calls, controlling smart devices, and accessing info from other Google apps.
  • Images generated with Gemini will now feature an invisible digital watermark using a tool called ‘SynthID’.
  • Gemini (finally) made its debut in Canada, where it is now available in both English and French.
Why it matters: The transition from Bard to Gemini is finally complete — and Google just took the LLM race to the next level. With Ultra now pushing ChatGPT for top model status, all eyes turn to OpenAI for a counter-punch with a GPT-4.5 or 5 release.
