Google has rolled out the mobile version of its AI assistant, Gemini, in Singapore on Wednesday (May 1), granting users convenient access to assistance while on the move.

With Gemini on your phone, you can type, talk or add an image for all kinds of help: You can take a picture of your flat tire and ask for instructions on how to change it, get help writing social media posts, or even plan a date night.

On Android, you can access Gemini through the app or, if you select to opt-in through Google Assistant, from anywhere else you normally activate the virtual assistant software.

According to Google, this will enable a new overlay experience that offers easy access to Gemini as well as contextual help right on your screen. Many Google Assistant voice features will be available through the Gemini app, including setting timers, making calls and controlling your smart home devices.

For those with an iOS device, Gemini will be made available through the Google app over the next couple of weeks.

Apart from the app, Google is enabling extensions, saving you time by retrieving relevant information from Google apps and services that you use daily, such as Gmail, Docs, Drive, Google Maps, YouTube, and Google Flights, even when the information required is across multiple apps and services.

For example, if you and your friends are planning a trip, you can ask Gemini to find dates from Gmail that work for everyone, look up flight and hotel information based on those dates and location, find YouTube videos about what to pack and summarise the packing list mentioned in that video — all within one conversation.

To allow for easier access, Google has also introduced a new way to access Gemini in Chrome on PCs. Simply type in @gemini followed by your prompt in the Chrome address bar, and gemini.google.com launches with a response to your prompt. 

We remain dedicated to making Gemini available to as many people as possible. By expanding our language support and reaching new countries, we’re ensuring more people can supercharge their ideas with Gemini.
