You can now even replace Google Assistant with the new Gemini AI on your Android phone. Google may soon give you an option to do the same with Android Auto and Wear OS 5.

Google Gemini could in the near future replace the Google Assistant on Android Auto as well. Though Gemini isn’t polished yet to replace Google Assistant, it is already taking over smartphones.

This year is all about AI assistants and chatbots. It won’t be too long before car-makers start implementing their own versions of AI assistants based on offerings from Google’s Gemini, OpenAI’s ChatGPT, Meta’s Lllama, and more.
