Google is doing a lot of shifting with rebranding once again. The company has rebranded its Bard to Gemini and completely replaced Assistant with the latter, and although the app is not really available to everyone, we are seeing the company actively making changes, so it is safe to say that this is going to become a widespread thing pretty soon.
Gemini app is heading to headphones, ensuring that Google is serious about replacing Assistant
Now, we have some more information that suggests that the search engine giant is working on bringing Gemini to headphones. This information was discovered in the Google app version 15.6, and there is a string that mentions plans for the app on headphones. You can check out the string below.
It is also worth noting that although it is good news, we don’t know when the Gemini app is going to head to headphones (no pun intended), but if that is going to be the case, I am really interested in finding out how it is going to work and what features are going to be available. It is worth noting that Assistant is always available on several Google and non-Google headphones, so it only makes sense that the very app replacing Assistant is also coming to headphones.
I just hope that in between this shift, Google does not lose sight of Gemini because it is safe to say that the company has given up a lot and shifted a lot of things around to make this app, and it would be really, really strange if the company decides to just get rid of it altogether and focuses on something else.
Now, Gemini coming to headphones and other smart devices should not really surprise anyone because it is a rather obvious thing. Assistant has been there for some time, and it is already available on multitudes of devices, so it is only fair that the new assistant should also start making its way to different platforms. I just hope that it only comes with an improved user experience that everyone will enjoy.
As far as the devices and headphones that will get the Gemini support, I believe that any headphone or device that supports Assistant should get the new app. We don’t have a timeline for this change, but we are going to keep you posted about the situation, and you will be the first to know whenever that happens.
