At this year's Google I/O 2024 event which started last night, the company announced several exciting improvements to its Gemini AI chatbot for Android devices. Among them is the news that artificial intelligence is now an integral part of the Android operating system, allowing for deeper integration with applications.

The most significant new feature wouldn't have been possible without integration with the underlying operating system, so Gemini will now better understand context while you manage applications on your smartphone. Google gave an example of quickly sharing or sending images generated by artificial intelligence in Gmail or Messages, although for now, you might want to avoid generating some "historical" images.

The company also introduced the "Ask this video" feature, which allows users to ask questions about a specific YouTube video, to which the AI chatbot should respond. Google claims this will work with "billions" of video clips, and a similar tool exists for PDF formats.

When Gemini gains access to a larger portion of your app collection as part of Android 15, it should really deliver on some of the big promises made by competitors like Human and Rabbit, tech companies developing various AI applications and services.

For now, Google says it's "just scratching the surface of what on-device AI can change about what your phone can do," so we can look forward to future integration with apps, at least like Uber (a popular ride-hailing platform) and Doordash (an app used for food ordering and delivery).

Thanks to built-in artificial intelligence, the Circle to Search feature will also get a boost. Users can mark almost anything on their phone and then get relevant information about it. Google claims people will be able to do this without needing to switch apps.

Given that the capabilities of artificial intelligence are almost limitless for now, it can easily be expanded to tackle problems in physics and mathematics—just mark the answer field and get the solution, which will likely delight students but probably just further frustrate teachers.
