  • Google has reportedly ditched plans for an AI chatbot app for Gen Z users.
  • The app was called Bubble Characters and would’ve seen a character converse with users.
  • It’s believed that some team members were switched to working on Bard ahead of its launch.

Google released its Bard chatbot earlier this year, following in the footsteps of ChatGPT and Bing Chat. Now, it turns out that the company may have quietly dropped plans for a rather peculiar chatbot.

CNBC reports that Google dropped plans for an AI-powered chatbot app focused on Gen Z users, citing internal documents it saw.
