Gemini to Gemini 1.5 Pro and Flash

Well Google upgraded its Gemini to Gemini 1.5 Pro and Flash and these are some major upgrades done by Google, they also made Gemini according to the suitability for customers.
Lets see the difference between Gemini 1.5 Pro and Flash -:
As we know that ChatGPT Plus which the Google’s version , expanded context window of 1 million tokensand by this it will help it make sense of multiple large documents, up to 1,500 pages total. You can upload those files directly from Google drive. Now the main work comes, for those who need the fastest response possible, Gemini 1.5 Flash is a smaller model which is optimised for narrower or high frequency task. Now today, more than 200 countries both versions are available in preview before a formal launch in June. For Google Cloud users, with a 2 million context window a version of 1.5 Pro is available but you’ll need to join a waitlist.

All things you need to know about AI Overviews 

Google doing research for many years in many fields, recently last year, Google has been testing out its Search Generative Experience (SGE) and it puts AI-generated responses atop search results and is intended to answer your question quickly at a glance, by this you don’t need to click through blue links. Now Google’s I/O has been rolling out to everyone in the USA, and with more countries coming soon. By this feature some search driven publishers has put on edge, since the data surfaced by AI Overviews is pulled from their sites. But Google takes a firm stand that the links included in AI Overviews get more clicks than if the page had appeared as a traditional web listing for that query. Well the wait is going to over very soon and Google said that we will able to adjust to AI Overviews to get a simple or more complex response.

Google : Ask Photos

We take photos and try to capture every moment we pass. Phone storage is not enough to save all the photos and also if we lost phone we never recovered the photos. By syncing your phone to Google Photos you can see your precious moments any time any where. But it can be still a chore to surface an image when you need it. Well no need to worry, with Google’s Ask Photos you can have a conversation with your photo albums via Gemini and the AI will serve up pics. According to Google you can also go a little deeper than “Show me photos of the White House ” to ask things like “Show me the best photo from each national monument i have visited ” or ” What themes have we had for my home parties ?” Ask Photos is an experimental feature that will roll out “soon.”

Google : Project Astra

Well Google is living in the future and giving us future technologies. Now Google launched the Project Astra which is a next generation AI assistant that will change the view of the world around you, and provide advice and tips throughout the day.

In Google’s demo, Google’s employee accessed the AI assistant on smartphone and pointing its camera at various objects and asking Gemini to identify or provide details about them and Google is first in this type of technology and this only the starting, many features are coming to us in near future. Project Astra identified parts on a speaker, what type of code was displayed on a monitor and it provides the location of Google office was located in from looking out the window. There are many features in Project Astra as it can also recall where the employee had left his glasses. The company plans on rolling out parts of Project Astra later this year through the Gemini app. 

Google : Veo Video Generator

Google is taking all over the things, whether it is Artificial Intelligence or Smartwatch or Smartphones and the list is very long, now Google taking it next move to a new AI video generator, image creator, and music-making toolbox during its keynote. Much like OpenAI’s Sora now with the help of Veo Video Generator you can take text based prompts and turns them into 1080p resolution videos longer than 60 seconds. Well it is available to select creators in private preview and through a waitlist. Now Google is planning to release it more widely in the future as well as to YouTube Shorts as a new video-creation tool.

Google Gemini : Workspace Upgrade

Now Google is changing your way of working as Google Gemini is upgrading its workspace. Earlier this year Google added its Gemini smarts and its enterprise-focused software will now get a Gemini 1.5 Pro upgrade. It works when a person launches Gemini in the side panel of Gmail, Docs, Drive, Slides, and Sheets, Google says that Gemini provides you  answers of a wide variety of questions and give you more insightful responses. It also includes asking Gemini to summarize lengthy email threads or Docs. This upgrade is available for only those who are using it via Labs or Workspace Alpha; everyone else gets it next month.

Google : Scam Call Alerts

Many of use don’t want unwanted calls and but many caller id’s are much more advance that we can’t identify scam calls but no need to worry because Google is going to change all this, the news is Google is testing an AI-powered alert system that warns Android users about scam phone calls in real time. It taps Gemini Nano and the advantage of this is that it is an AI model and it can run locally on a smartphone without connecting to the internet and if the AI picks up on keywords associated with a scam (like asking for a password), it can prompt you to hang up. You can dismiss the pop-up if the call is legit.

Google : Excuse Me, Your Phone Is Hacked

We are so much excited about the Google updates and upgrade and now Google is giving one more upgrade for preventing your phone from hacking. A new feature gives developers a heads up if their apps on running on devices infected with malware. By this feature it allows your Android to notify an developer  if another app might be recording the screen, overlaying content, or taking control of the phone. Now just wait and see Google is planning so much for the future, many projects are under development.
