Gemini Not Ready to Replace Google Assistant on Android, According to User Sentiment
In a recent survey conducted by Pakistan News, it has been revealed that users are not ready to replace Google Assistant with Gemini on their Android devices. Despite the anticipation surrounding Gemini’s launch, it seems that it still has some way to go before it can compete with Google Assistant.
The survey indicated that users have been experiencing various issues with Gemini, prompting them to express their discontent. Google has acknowledged these concerns and has compiled a list of “things to fix” in order to enhance the user experience.
One of the major drawbacks of Gemini is the lack of support for certain features and services that are available on Google Assistant. This includes podcasts, news and radio stations, and third-party music providers. Additionally, routines and reminders cannot be accessed through Gemini, although they can still be used with Google Assistant on Home devices.
Furthermore, users have highlighted the absence of a crucial feature called Interpreter mode, which allows for real-time translation. This means that users must switch back to Google Assistant in order to utilize this feature.
However, Google has announced its plans to introduce Assistant tasks such as calendar, reminders, and routines extensions to Gemini in the future, demonstrating its commitment to improving the app.
In terms of language support, Gemini now offers English support for countries worldwide, as well as Japanese and Korean. This rollout began on Monday and is expected to enable a wider range of users to access Gemini’s services.
While Gemini is still in the process of being fully launched, it is important to note that its availability in certain regions such as the UK, Switzerland, European Economic Area countries, and associated territories is “coming soon.” This indicates that Google is taking its time to ensure a seamless launch in these areas.
Despite the shortcomings identified by users, Google remains optimistic about Gemini. The tech giant believes that Gemini’s writing style, creativity in helping users find the right words and ideas, speed of responses, lack of usage caps, online connectivity, images in responses, and integration with tools like Gmail and Maps are all positive aspects of the app.
Moreover, Google is offering a two-month free trial of the Gemini Advanced tier, serving as a soft launch for the paid version. This allows users to experience the full range of features and services offered by Gemini before deciding whether to subscribe.
In conclusion, while Gemini still has some improvements to make before it can potentially replace Google Assistant on Android devices, it has shown promise in certain areas. With ongoing updates and the planned introduction of new features, Gemini has the potential to become a popular choice among Android users in the near future.
