An assistant will be determined exclusively for Google Pixel devices and will be to use data from Google products, such as Gmail or Maps. That means it could eventually evolve into a much better version of Google Assistant.

Google only revealed its artificial intelligence last week Gemini as a response to GPT-4 and marked it as the most capable model ever created. He also announced that Gemini will be coming to Android through a new product called Nano, which will give the phone the ability to perform complex tasks.
