The most powerful and adaptable AI model ever created:

As per a Google blog, Gemini, available in Ultra, Pro, and Nano sizes, is optimized for diverse platforms, from data centers to smartphones. Gemini Nano, tailored for on-device tasks, powers the Pixel 8 Pro. Leveraging the Google Tensor G3, it introduces enhanced features: Summarize in Recorder and Smart Reply in Gboard.

Gemini Nano on Pixel 8 Pro is designed to enhance privacy, keeping sensitive data on the device and enabling feature use without a network connection.

Gemini Nano running on-device is just the beginning. The extended Gemini family will introduce fresh capabilities to the Bard-powered Assistant experience on Pixel early next year.
