The Google Gemini mobile app arrived in the US last week, and the chatbot/experimental assistant is now slowly rolling out to other parts of the world. However, Google hasn’t said much about its plans to bring Gemini to other devices like headsets and headphones. That mystery may now be solved, with new evidence suggesting Assistant-supported headphones could be next on the list to get Google Gemini support.
Google expands Gemini’s footprint
A string found in the latest beta version (v15.6) of the Google app hints that Gemini will be coming to headphones soon. As 9to5Google correctly points out, the headphones are easier to test-run since users will also have the paired smartphone as a backup option.
To be clear, the Gemini support page claims that multiple non-mobile devices such as Smart Displays, Pixel Tablet, speakers, smartwatches, as well as headphones and earbuds with Google Assistant built-in will continue to be supported by Google Assistant.
