Google Gemini: A New Subscription Model and Gmail Suggestions

Google’s AI chatbot, Google Gemini, is on the brink of a significant transformation. The revamp includes the introduction of reply features with Gmail on Android and a new subscription model.

The Financial Times reports that Google is contemplating a range of new AI features for Google Search. These features could potentially be incorporated into the company’s existing premium subscription services. According to sources close to the matter, the concept is under active development. However, Google’s regular search engine will remain free to use. Both free and premium search products are expected to continue displaying ads. Google is still considering various ideas internally.

Here’s how it might work:

  1. Compose Your Email: Start writing your email as usual.
  2. Gemini Analyzes: In the background, Google Gemini might analyze the incoming email you’re replying to.
  3. Smart Reply Options Pop-Up: Google Gemini can provide a selection of concise and appropriate response options that are customized to the content of the email, based on its analysis.
  4. Choose: Choose the best recommendation or let it inspire you to create your reply.

The quick-reply options in the Gmail app aim to save users time and effort. Instead of writing responses from scratch or relying on external prompts, users can use Google Gemini’s AI to speed up communication. Although developers are testing the AI-generated replies feature, Google has not yet announced its official release to Gmail users. More information and announcements about its availability will be provided in the upcoming months.

Google Gemini and AI Studio

In March, Bloomberg reported that Apple is in active negotiations with Google for a potential partnership. The crux of this partnership would be Google’s artificial intelligence model, Gemini.

If the deal goes through, it would allow Apple to license Gemini and integrate its unique features into the iPhone. This could potentially jumpstart generative AI capabilities on iOS, enhancing the user experience with new AI-powered features.

However, it’s important to note that the deal is not yet finalized and may face regulatory scrutiny. Apple has also reportedly held discussions with OpenAI for a similar deal involving its GPT model, indicating that the outcome of which model will power iOS generative AI features is still up for debate.

The user-facing version of Gemini is already being integrated into the Google app on iOS. If the partnership works similarly to Google’s deal with Samsung, Apple would likely run some specific Apple-branded features with Gemini under the hood. This could include features like image editing, improved translations, and AI summaries.

Apple may be looking to partner with Google because their generative AI technology is not as advanced as other companies. This collaboration would be a nod to their past, as Apple and Google have worked together before to develop important apps for the iPhone.

Despite these potential advancements, it’s crucial to remember that these are still ongoing negotiations and the outcome is yet to be determined. As such, users can expect further details and announcements regarding its availability in the coming months

New Feature for Gemini: User Oversight

To give users more control, Google unveiled a new feature for Gemini on March 4. This feature allows users to edit inaccurate responses that are not the proper length or suitable for their needs. Users can modify specific parts of the text provided by Gemini by clicking on the pencil tool pop-up after generating an initial response from any given prompt.

Despite these changes, Google has not yet re-released the image generation feature for Gemini. Earlier this year, there was a lot of debate over this feature that made historically incorrect images of Nazis and the founding fathers. The feature also struggled to create images of Caucasian individuals.
