Google, on Thursday, renamed its Bard chatbot after the new artificial intelligence that is powering it, called Gemini, and said consumers can pay for better reasoning capabilities as it vies with Microsoft to win subscriptions.
According to the Alphabet subsidiary, United States customers can subscribe for twenty dollars a month to access Gemini Advanced, which includes a more powerful Ultra 1.0 AI model.
Subscribers will receive two terabytes of cloud storage that typically cost ten dollars monthly, and they will soon gain access to Gemini in Gmail and Google’s productivity suite.
This bundle, known as the Google One AI Premium plan, represents one of the company’s biggest answers yet to Microsoft and its partner OpenAI and it shows growing competition over consumers, who now have several paid AI subscription options.
