Apart from the rebranding, Gemini may also get a dedicated app for smartphones that will give users more access to their daily tasks. Additionally, the app can be integrated with other Google products such as Gmail, Google Maps and YouTube. The Gemini app will reportedly launch in the US first and then roll out globally, barring some regions.
As reported earlier, Google will introduce a subscription model with Gemini Advance. With this, users can take advantage of Gemini's Ultra 1.0 model, which is more powerful than the Pro version.
