Accessing Google Gemini Advanced on iOS is a pretty difficult process, especially since there’s fairly little instructions on how to actually do it.
According to Google, “On iOS, we’ll roll out access to Gemini right from the Google app in the coming weeks,” which alludes to a pretty soft launch for the app. We’ve seen this commonly with plenty of AI softwares: GPT-4, Microsoft Copilot, and Google Bard at times. It looks like we’ll see a similar pattern with Gemini Advanced on iPhones and iPad.
How to access Google Gemini Advanced app on iOS
At the moment, the only way to gain access to the Gemini Advanced app on iOS is through the Google app, which you can download from the Apple App Store. You’re also going to need to become a subscriber to Google Gemini Advanced, which you can sign up for through the Google One site.
Gaining access to Gemini Advanced isn’t as simple as subscribing and downloading the App, as you’re going to need to rely on a stroke of luck in order to get access. There’s no waitlist to join, nor any way to speed up the process. All you can do it sign up and hope.
In the meantime, though, you can still access Google Gemini Advanced through your web browser, though the UI won’t be as polished as Google’s app.
What countries is Google Gemini Advanced iOS app accessible in?
Seeing as the Google Gemini Advanced is so infantile, it’s only available in the U.S at the time of writing. Alongside that, English is the only available language with Japanese and Korean most likely to land next.
Why is the Google Gemini Advanced app not available for all iOS users?
Based on the launch of ChatGPT’s iOS app which saw huge issues deteriorating the health of user’s iPhones, it’s understandable if Google are looking to be wary of throwing an extraordinarily powerful AI model onto all iPhones straight away.
On top of that, you have to consider that Google would no doubt prioritise Android first, partly because of how closely linked Android is to the Google ecosystem, but also the fact that there’s so many Android devices out there that development is going to be a much bigger and monumental task.
