But recently Gemini product lead Jack Krawczyk said that they started the roll out to more countries too. Now in this article we'll discuss how you can access Google Gemini AI on Android and iOS. The Android experience involves a dedicated app, while iOS users need to go through the Google app.

2. Now in the Search bar at the top search for "Google Gemini".

3. Install the Google Gemini app.

4. Open the app and follow the prompts to set up your account. If you are already a Google Bard user & using the same email address on your device then it'll automatically set up everything.

5. After going through the quick setup process, you'll have full access to Gemini through the app.

To use Gemini on iOS:

1. Make sure you have the latest Google app installed.

2. Open the app and sign in to your Google account.

3. Look for the Gemini tab within the app and tap it.

Google's new Gemini AI assistant represents an exciting advancement in conversational AI, now accessible for limited users on Android and iOS. While Android offers the smoothest experience through a tailored Gemini app, iOS users can still utilize Gemini's capabilities directly within the Google app. As Google expands availability, Gemini's impressive AI chatbot features will become available to more users across platforms.
