Chrome Gemini

Gemini exists in several forms on different types of devices. It’s Google’s AI brainchild, and it wants to spread it to the world. Well, the company had a little help. A user got Gemini to run natively on Chromes, and he showcased just how lightning-fast it is.

Right now, Gemini primarily has to contact the cloud to do its computing. The exception is Gemini Nano which is structured to fit on smartphone chips. With Nano, devices won’t need to connect to the internet to do any sort of processing. This makes the AI much more accessible. During Google I/O, we got the news that Google is planning to add Gemini Nano to Chrome.

Yes, Chrome is an internet browser, so it’s always connected to the internet. However, Google is adding some AI tools to the actual program, and having access to an offline model will make things much more seamless. Rather than contacting  Google just to translate text or summarize a document, it would have the ability to do so right away.

If you’re excited about trying this out for yourself, you’re going to be disappointed. This feature is not available to the general public. So, if you’re not really tech-savvy, then it’s time to wrack up points in the Waiting Game.

This is currently in testing, which means that you’ll need to download the latest Chrome Canary build to try it out. After you do that, you’ll need to make some slight modifications to the code, so you’ll need to know what you’re doing to get this to work. Also, you’ll need to sign up for the “Built-in AI proposal preview” to gain access.

So, how does this feature function? The answer is “VERY fast!” a user on Twitter posted a video showcasing how fast it runs, and it’s pretty insane.

In the video above (Source), we see Morten Just entering prompts and getting results within a fraction of a second. Not only that but it’s processing everything in real-time. By the time he typed a new word, the output changed to reflect it.

At this point, we don’t know when Google is going to push to the public. We also don’t know if the company is going to charge for this functionality. Users have to pay to integrate Gemini with the Gmail app, so there’s a chance that Google could charge for this. Only time will tell.
