Google’s products and services have developed a reputation for being confusing over the years, and the company’s Gemini AI project is no exception. Similar to Google Meet, which stands on the shoulders of Google Duo and Hangouts, the term Gemini can refer to different things depending on context. For example, many recent smartphones like the Pixel 8 and Galaxy S24 series advertise having Gemini on-board but that’s not quite the same as the Gemini chatbot you can access via an app or browser.

With so many different Google products and services bearing the Gemini title then, we think it’s worth taking a step back and decoding what it all means.
