‘I want Gemini’s seamless Google Maps integration on my iPhone right now’

A groundbreaking new mobile gadget called the Rabbit r1 is changing the game with its ability to perform in-app actions for users. This type of AI functionality is unprecedented and opens up a world of possibilities for the future of mobile devices. While the Rabbit r1 may be the first of its kind, it’s only a matter of time before similar capabilities make their way to iPhones and Android devices as AI technology continues to advance.

One exciting new feature currently being rolled out is the integration of Gemini and Google Maps. Instead of simply displaying information in a window, Google’s generative AI product can now open Google Maps directly. This functionality is a game-changer, especially on mobile devices where AI is gradually replacing traditional voice assistants.

According to 9to5Google, a recent update to Gemini on Android enables users to give commands like “Navigate to [place]” or “take me to [x].” Gemini will then provide a summary of the route, a map, distance information, and trip durations, along with a link to directions. But the most significant update is the seamless redirect to Google Maps, making it easier than ever to access navigation information.

With the latest update, Gemini will automatically open Google Maps with the specified route, offering convenient navigation assistance on the go. This integration between Gemini and Google Maps is sure to be a game-changer for drivers, allowing for automatic navigation to destinations with just a simple command or thought. As AI continues to evolve, we can expect even more innovative features like this to enhance our mobile experiences in the future.
