Google’s Gemini Updated With Enhanced Navigation Experience


Gemini, Google’s latest AI offering, represents a significant stride in the realm of AI (Artificial Intelligence), showcasing Google’s commitment to advancing multimodal AI technology — However, it’s worth noting that Gemini is essentially a rebranding of Google Bard and still has various issues that need addressing. While it holds promise as a potential successor to Google Assistant, it currently lacks the readiness to fully supplant it.

An area of improvement lies in the handling of navigation requests. Previously, when using Gemini to request directions, users would receive a card displaying route details, including distance, travel time, and a map. However, to access the actual navigation, users had to click a link within the card, which detracted from the hands-free experience.

To streamline this process, Google has introduced an update in the latest version of Gemini. Released on March 25, this update eliminates the need for manual intervention by automatically initiating Google Maps navigation shortly after requesting directions. With this enhancement, users experience a more seamless navigation process without the need to interact with additional links.

While these improvements are welcomed, it’s important to acknowledge that Gemini is still a work in progress. Users must choose between Gemini and Google Assistant, as enabling one disables the other. Understanding Gemini’s strengths and limitations is crucial for optimizing the user experience.
