Gemini Nears Replacing Google Assistant

First off, Google Gemini just kicked Bard to the curb. Now, it seems like Assistant is next on the chopping block. We’re all biting our nails, wondering when Google will give Assistant the boot for Gemini. And guess what? Gemini’s inching closer to that reality. You don’t even need to hit ‘Send’ anymore when you’re chatting it up with Gemini as your voice assistant.

So, here’s the scoop. You can already use Gemini on your phone, kinda like a voice assistant. It’s all happening through the Gemini app. Just swipe up diagonally, and boom, you’re talking to your phone like it’s Google Assistant or Bixby. But here’s the kicker: Gemini’s like the Google Assistant on steroids, thanks to its fancy AI brains. No doubt, folks are gonna start ditching Google Assistant for this shiny new toy.

But, hold your horses. Google’s been upfront about one thing. Gemini’s missing a few bells and whistles that would make it a full-blown assistant replacement.

Now, onto the big news. The whole “press the Send button” thing? Yeah, that’s old news. Before, after you’d spill your guts to Gemini, you had to smack that Send button to get your words flying. Kinda annoying, right? Especially when you compare it to just blurting out your needs to Google Assistant and getting an instant answer.

People weren’t thrilled about this. They made some noise, and Google? They listened. Now, with a simple swipe-up gesture, you can chat away without ever touching the Send button. Just talk, and Gemini takes care of the rest. This smooth move makes Gemini feel even more like a legit Google Assistant rival.

We’re pretty sure Google’s gearing up to swap Assistant for Gemini. They haven’t spelled it out, but the writing’s on the wall. It’s a bittersweet moment, really. Google Assistant burst onto the scene in 2016, right alongside the first Pixel phone. It’s been the heart and soul of Android ever since. Watching it get the axe before hitting a decade is gonna sting. But, that’s the way the cookie crumbles, it seems.
