How to Use Google Gemini AI in iOS 18 on iPhone

Both in terms of smartness and accuracy, Google’s Gemini is a top-notch AI chatbot. You can use it to perform a number of tasks such as generating and summarizing text, creating images, and even enhancing your search queries. Though ChatGPT has managed to get a seamless integration with iPhone in iOS 18, Gemini is not far behind and could soon embrace Apple’s mobile platform in all its glory through a partnership. But that doesn’t mean you can’t use Google Gemini AI in iOS 18 on your iPhone. Read on…

Use Google Gemini AI on Your iPhone

So, how do you get Google Gemini AI on your iOS device? Well, you don’t have to do anything extraordinary to unravel Gemini. As Google’s AI is integrated with the Search, you can bring it on at will (you guessed it!) – right from the app.

  • To get started, download the Google app on your iPhone. 
  • After that, launch the Google app and make sure to sign in to your Google account. 
  • Note that If Gemini is available in your country/region, the Gemini icon will show right next to the Google Search icon at the top center.
  • Now, hit the Gemini tab to bring the chatbot into action.
  • Next, go ahead and ask anything to the AI chatbot as it’s readily available to sort out your queries. If you want to speak your prompt instead of typing it out, hit the microphone icon and speak it.
  • Finally, tap on the Send button and you are good to go!

  • Then, tap on your profile picture at the top right corner of the screen.
  • Next, choose Settings.
Go to Google Search settings
  • Next up, select General.
  • Turn off/on the toggle next to “Show Gemini”
  • Be sure to tap on the Done button at the upper-right corner of the screen.

Wrapping up…

It’s worth pointing out that the Gemini is far from perfect and therefore can make mistakes. Hence, you shouldn’t fully bank on it to provide accurate answers all the time. Notably, there have been several reports where Google’s AI chatbot has offered up awful answers.

Faced with massive competition from the likes of OpenAI ChatGPT, Meta AI, Copilot, and Apple Intelligence, Google Gemini has to deliver the goods to not just compete with its rivals but also stay ahead of the curve. As of now, ChatGPT seems to be a little ahead in the battle due largely to the ability to employ sophisticated AI and NLP techniques to provide pertinent and relevant answers.

However, it’s just the beginning of AI domination so we should wait for at least a year or two to decide which AI-powered chatbot will eventually be able to rule the roost. Irrespective of whoever manages to run away with the coveted crown, it’s the end users like us who will benefit the most. What do you think of the fast-paced AI battle?
