Google’s Gemini, a chatbot, will soon be integrated into Google Messages on Android phones, allowing users to engage in conversations with it.

This feature, previously known as Bard, is gradually being rolled out to beta testers who are over 18. Currently, Gemini is available in English in select markets and in French exclusively in Canada.

Within the Messages app, users can utilize Gemini for various tasks such as drafting messages, planning events, or simply chatting. To access Gemini, users need a Google account, the latest version of Google Messages, and devices like Pixel 6 or later, Pixel Fold, Samsung Galaxy S22 or later, or Samsung Galaxy Z Flip or Z Fold.

Google recently rebranded Gemini, enhancing its efficiency. However, the chatbot faced criticism last week for generating images of Nazi soldiers portrayed as people of color.
