Gemini Rolls Out Widely in Google Messages


Table of content

Gemini has been widely rolled out in the Google Messages app for stable users over the past few days. This follows recent launches like Gemini 1.5 Pro in Gemini Advanced and the YouTube Music Gemini extension.

Once available, Gemini will appear as the first contact in the Start Chat FAB > New Conversation List.

After agreeing to some terms, you are taken to a reasonably standard messaging interface.

You have emojis and a gallery in the text box, with the option to upload photos to prompt but not voice memos.


Gemini can be used here to “draft messages, brainstorm ideas, plan events, or just have a fun conversation.” It is optimized to provide more concise responses.

There is support for Gemini extensions like Workspace (@Gmail, etc.), @YouTube, and @GoogleMaps, but “the YouTube Music extension is not available in Gemini in Google Messages.”

You can long-press on a reply to leave a thumbs-up or thumbs-down, with starring and forwarding options also available. Conversations occur over RCS, which should generally be enabled but are not end-to-end encrypted.

Gemini cannot be accessed via or the Wear OS app (where the chat won’t appear).

Gemini is rolling out globally in Google Messages, except for Europe, the UK, Switzerland, or India, with support for English and French in Canada.
