• Google says that Adobe is testing Gemini Nano support in Acrobat.
  • Adobe Acrobat may use Gemini Nano to power on-device generative AI features like summarization, which is part of the Acrobat AI Assistant tool.
  • Patreon and Grammarly are also working to add Gemini Nano-powered AI features to their apps.

Generative AI is the hottest trend in tech, and there are no signs of it slowing down any time soon. Just last week, Google spent the bulk of its Google I/O 2024 keynote talking up the company’s advancements in AI. The company focused mostly on showing off its own AI products, of course, but it also spared some time to showcase some of the work done by its partners. For example, Google teased the arrival of a new experience of Acrobat AI Assistant, Abode’s suite of generative AI features in Acrobat and Reader, that makes use of Gemini Nano.

Gemini, if you aren’t aware, is the branding for Google’s Large Language Model (LLM) and AI chatbot. There are multiple versions of the Gemini LLM: Nano, Pro, and Ultra. Gemini Nano is the smallest and least complex of the three models, which allows it to be run on mobile devices like the Google Pixel 8 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S24 series. While Gemini Nano isn’t suitable for tasks like powering a general-purpose AI chatbot, the current version is more than capable of processing small to medium blocks of text to provide summaries or suggested replies. That’s exactly why Google uses it to power the Pixel voice recorder app’s on-device summarization feature as well as Gboard’s smart replies in various messaging apps. Samsung also uses Gemini Nano to power some of its on-device Galaxy AI features.
