Gemini in India: Now on Mobile, Multilingual, and More Powerful For Your Everyday Tasks

Gemini, your AI assistant from Google, has had an exciting first year in India. We've been thrilled to see how people across the country are using it to collaborate with AI in diverse ways — be it for schoolwork, coding, or creative exploration. From students to developers and many other curious minds, people in India are embracing Gemini's capabilities to enhance their productivity, learning, and creativity in everyday life.

Today, we're building on this momentum with new Gemini features designed to empower even more people to get things done in their preferred language. This includes the launch of the Gemini app, a launch we're particularly excited about in India given the country's strong mobile-first culture. Both the Gemini app and Gemini Advanced, which gives users access to Google's most capable AI models, will now be available in nine Indian languages, helping more people access information and complete tasks in their preferred language. Additionally, we’re unlocking new features in Gemini Advanced such as new data analysis capabilities and file uploads, and also launching the ability to chat with Gemini in Google Messages, starting in English.

Gemini on the Go: App Now Available in India

We're excited to announce the Gemini app is now available in India, supporting English and nine Indian languages: Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, and Urdu. Now, whether you need to plan a game night, create a recipe with specific ingredients, or craft a social media caption, Gemini is available on the go. The app allows you to type, talk, or even add an image to get the assistance you need. Take a picture of a flat tire for instructions on how to change it, or get help writing that perfect thank you note – the possibilities are endless. This marks a significant step forward in our journey to build a truly conversational, multimodal, and helpful AI assistant.

To access Gemini on Android, download the Gemini app or opt-in through Google Assistant. You can then use Gemini by corner swiping, hitting the power button on select phones, or saying "Hey Google." This enables a new overlay experience with easy access to Gemini and contextual help right on your screen. Many voice features you loved in Google Assistant will be available through the Gemini app — including setting timers, making calls and setting reminders — and we’re working to support more in the future.

On iOS, Gemini access is rolling out directly from the Google app over the next few weeks. Just tap the Gemini toggle and start chatting to supercharge your creativity and productivity.

Gemini Advanced in Indian Languages, with Powerful New Features

We're bringing the power of Gemini 1.5 Pro, our most advanced model, to Gemini Advanced in nine Indian languages: Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, and Urdu.

With a massive 1 million token context window, Gemini Advanced now boasts the longest context of any widely available consumer chatbot worldwide. This allows it to process and understand vast amounts of information, from lengthy documents (up to 1,500 pages) and emails to even hours of video and extensive codebases in the near future.

This expanded capacity unlocks new features for Gemini Advanced:

  • Document Uploads: Upload multiple large documents, up to 1,500-pages total, or summarize 100 emails. Gemini Advanced can then provide quick summaries, personalized feedback, and actionable insights, saving you time and boosting your productivity. Now you can quickly get answers and insights about dense documents, like figuring out the details of the pet policy in your rental agreement or comparing key arguments of multiple long research papers.
  • Data Analysis: Tackle complex data analysis tasks by uploading your spreadsheets (Google Sheets, CSVs, Excel). Gemini Advanced can now clean, explore, analyze, and visualize your data, transforming it into interactive charts and graphs. So whether you're looking to figure out patterns in your expenses or the average total sales of your small business, think of Gemini Advanced as your personal data analyst, uncovering insights and building custom visualizations on the fly.

As always, privacy is a top priority. Gemini keeps your files private to you, and they’re not used to train our models.

Access Gemini in more places

We’re also introducing Gemini in Google Messages to give you another way to collaborate with Gemini on your phone. Get help drafting messages, brainstorming ideas, or planning events - all without leaving the Messages app. We'll be rolling Gemini in Google Messages in English to start with, on select devices.

We're incredibly excited to see how people across India will continue to use Gemini in new and innovative ways. Whether you're using Gemini on your phone, in Google Messages, or on the web, we hope you'll find it to be a valuable tool for unleashing your creativity, boosting productivity, and exploring new ideas.
